Combination of Variations

This variation is similar to stud poker . Each player receives a preset mix of combination of face-down and face-up cards. The cards dealt face down to each individual player are called hole cards (which in poker gave rise to the common English expression “ace in the hole”, suggesting that one has something valuable that is not apparent to others). The cards dealt face-up are called street cards.

Different versions in this variation include three-card stud, where each player is dealt two face-down cards and one face-up card, and five-card stud (not to be confused with the poker variant of the same name), where each player is dealt two face-down cards and three face-up cards; some versions of five-card may require players to compulsorily select one face-down cards and any two face-up cards to make a three-card hand.

versions are:

  • Three-card community: Each player is dealt two face-down cards followed by one face-up community card.
  • Five=card community: Each player is dealt two face-down cards followed by three face-up community cards. Some versions of this game may require players to compulsorily select any one face-down cards and any two face-up cards to make a three-card hand.

Teen patti has many variant versions. A combination of variations may be played simultaneously.

Best-of-four

Each player is dealt four cards from which they must make the best possible three-card hand.

Lowball (mufliss]

Similar to lowball in poker, the rankings of the card combinations are reversed: The least ranking combination has the highest rank and vice versa.

Example: If A-Q-3 and A-K-2 are compared in normal game A-K-2 is the winner <both have A but K is higher than Q> but in lowball A-Q-3 is the winner <both have A but Q is lower than K>. 3-2-5 is the best hand in this game

Wild draw

The dealer pulls out one card at random after dealing and nominates all other cards of the same rank as wild cards.

Low wild

Each player’s lowest-ranking card (and all other cards of that same rank) are wild cards in that player’s hand only. If the two lowest cards are a pair then that pair is considered as two wild cards.

High wild

Each player’s highest-ranking card (and all other cards of that same rank) are wild cards in that player’s hand only. If the two highest cards are a pair then that pair is considered as two wild cards.

Two-lowest wild

Each player is dealt four cards and the two lowest cards taken together forms a virtual wild card in that player’s hand only. If the two lowest cards are a pair then that pair may be considered as a single wild card. In this version, if the two middle rank cards are a pair, then the player does not have any wild cards.

Bust card draw

The dealer pulls out one card at random after dealing and nominates all other cards of the same rank as bust cards. Any player holding any of the bust cards has to fold.

Community

Players are dealt an incomplete hand of face-down cards, and then a number of face-up community cards are dealt to the center of the table, each of which can be used by one or more of the players to make a three-card hand. This variant was inspired by  Texas hold em poker.
