To play, the players must place a bet in the "Ante" box position before each player.
Each player is dealt five cards face down. The dealer is then dealt four cards face down
and one up.
The players can then look at their cards and must decide what their next move should be.
Now the player has two choices:
A. FOLD: Lose amount placed in the "ante" box, or;
B. PLAY: Bet double the amount in the "ante" box in the "bet" box.
After all decisions are made, the dealer will then show his remaining four cards and compare them to the remaining player's hands.
The dealer plays only if his hand is Ace-King combo or higher. If dealer's hand is lower
than Ace-King combo, the player wins even money (1 to 1) on the amount bet in the ante
box. The bet in the "bet" box is a standoff.
If the dealer obtains Ace-King combo or higher and his hand beats the player's hand, the
player loses amount placed in both the ante and bet boxes.
If the player's hand beats the dealer's hand, then the player receives even money (1 to 1)
on the amount bet placed in the ante box and a bonus on the amount bet placed in the bet
box based on the player's hand.
