How to play Let It Ride

Posted by salim14 on October 1st, 2010

The object of the game is to get a pair of 10s or better using three cards dealt to the players and two community cards given to the dealer. After each player receives his / her cards the dealer discards one card leaving two cards face down in front of the dealer.

To start with, each player makes three bets of equal amount ( for example, a $5 table requires $15 to start the game) and places them on the three bet circles 1, 2, $. The bonus bet on the bonus circle is an optional side bet and is normally $1.

Then the dealer gives each player three cards and takes two community cards , all placed face down. The remaining cards are then placed in the discard tray. When this is finished the player are allowed to look at their three-card hand. At this point each player has the option to take back the bet in circle number 1 or let it ride.

After all the players have made their decisions the dealer will turn up the first of the two community cards which is in front of the dealer. This card will be used as the fourth card for all the player's hands.

You now have the option taking down your second bet or let it ride irrespective of your first decision. You may take the second bet if you let the first bet ride but you can not take down or put the first bet back up.

After all the players make their decisions for the second bet, the dealer will turn up the second community card , which completes the five-card hand for every player. At this point the dealer will pay all the winning bets. Players without paying hands lose whatever bets still remain in play. Winners are paid based on hands which have a pair of 10s or better . with a pair of 10s paying even money, as follows;

Tens or better 1 to 1

Two pair pays ?2 to 1

three of a kind pays 3 to 1

straight pays ?5 to 1

Flush pays ? ? 8 to 1

Full house pays 11 to 1
