how to play

1. Third Eye Hold’em is a poker variant played with one standard 52-card deck of playing cards, shuffled before every deal.
2. Play begins with players making the mandatory Ante and, if so desired, either the Best Hand wager and/or the Blind Eye Hand wager; these wagers may be of any amount.
3. The dealer begins by dealing two cards to each of three spots: the first hand spot, the second hand spot, and the blind eye hand spot.  One of the blind eye hand’s cards remains face down; all other cards are turned face up.
4. The player then must make one of the following choices:
       a) Fold, and forfeit the Ante wager; any Best Hand and Blind Eye Hand wagers will remain in play and have action, or
       b) Make a Hand wager on one of the three hands; this wager may be 1x or 2x the Ante wager.
5. The dealer will then deal a three card face-up flop, to act as community cards for all three hands.
6. The player must then make one of the two following choices:

       a) Fold, and forfeit the Ante and Hand wagers, or
       b) Make a Play wager equal to the Ante wager.
7. The dealer will then deal two more community cards face-up, and then reveal the face-down blind eye hand’s card.
8. The dealer will then resolve the main wagers as follows:

       a) If the hand that the player has selected is the best (or tied for the best) of all three hands, their wagers are paid as follows:
           i) The Ante wager pays 2:1 if the player chose the blind eye hand to win, and 1:1 if they chose either of the other two.
          ii) The Hand wager pays 1:1.

          iii) The Play wager pushes if the winning hand is three of a kind or worse, and pays if the winning hand is a straight or better, depending on the                           paytable used, as follows: 
Winning hand
Paytable #1Paytable #2
Paytable #3
Trips or less
Full house
Straight flush
Royal flush
    b) Otherwise, the Ante, Hand and Play wagers lose.

9. Next, the Best Hand wager is resolved as follows:
    a) If the best of the three hands is not at least a straight, the Best Hand wager loses.
    b) Otherwise, the Best Hand wager pays according to the selected paytable, as follows:

​10. Finally, the Blind Eye Hand wager is resolved as follows:
   a) If the blind eye hand is two pair or less, the Blind Eye Hand wager loses.
   b) Otherwise, the Blind Eye Hand wager pays according to the selected paytable, as follows:
