Teen Patti (Flash)
Teen Patti is a card game played worldwide and particularly popular in India and south-east Asia.
It is played with a standard 52 card deck, with Aces being ranked highest and Twos ranked lowest.
Teen Patti can be played with a minimum of 2 players but it's more fun with 4 or more players. Touch Teen Patti offers games of 4 or 6 players at the table.
DealingCards are dealt anti-clockwise with each players receiving 3 cards face down.
Each player must place an initial stake of 200 into the pot in order to play Touch Teen Patti.
A bet placed without seeing the cards is called a blind. A blind bet is half the amount of the running bets.
Call and raise
A call is a bet equal to the last player's bet amount.
A raise is bet which is higher than the currently running bets.
The minimum increment in Touch Teen Patti is 200 and the raise limit is twice the current call amount.
A player can fold if he no longer feels that there is a chance of winning the pot. The bets already placed by the player remain in the pot and the player loses any claim to the pot.
A player who has seen his cards can ask for a sideshow with the last player (anti-clockwise). If the other player agrees, both the players compare their cards. The player with higher hand wins and the losing player has to pack.
If all the players have packed, the player who is still in the game wins the pot by default.
If two players remain in the game, a player during his turn can ask for the show. The cards are shown and the player holding a higher hand wins the pot.
Hand RankingSpecial hand (2-3-5)
The special hand of 2-3-5 is considered the highest hand, ranking higher than a hand of three Aces.
Three of a kind
Three of the same cards. Three Aces are the highest three of a kind hand, followed by three Kings and so on.
A sequence hand contains three consecutively numbered cards such as 2-3-4, or 9-10-J.
A pure sequence where all cards have the same suit is ranked higher than a sequence with the same numbers but containing mixed suits.
All one-suit sequences beat mixed-suit hands
The order of the ranking is as follows: A-2-3 is higher, A-K-Q, K-Q-J, Q-J-10 and so on till 4-3-2. 2-A-K is not a valid sequence.
If two players have the same cards, the player who asked for the show/sideshow loses.
Color (or Flush)
Any three cards of the same suit. Hand ranking is based on the highest card and, if the top card is the same, then the second highest card, and finally the third card if the second cards also match. The highest Color hand is A-K-Q and the lowest Color hand is 4-3-2.
Pair (or Two of a kind)
A pair is a hand containing two cards of the same rank but different suits, such as a pair of Aces.
Between two hands containing pairs, the hand with the higher ranking pair of cards wins.
When the rankings of the pairs are equal then the third card in each hand is used to decide the winner. The highest hand containing a pair is A-A-K and the lowest is 2-2-3.
When two players have matching high cards (irrespective of suit) then the next highest card decides who wins. If the second highest cards also match then the third cards determine the winner. The best High Card hand is A-K-Q of different suits, and the worst hand is 4-3-2.
