HOW TO PLAY
You’re given your hand of cards, and they are flipped over and passed out – you have to decide whether you want to stay or play using the hand that you have. Continue to remember your poker hands throughout this game – since those are what is going to win the pot in the middle.
You have to beat the other players or dealers hand in order to win the pot in the middle, and be able to raise the betting that is happening.
Continue to play a few rounds, discarding, calling or staying – as needed.
If no one wins this game, the bets are then taken away and a new game will be started. The person that has the best hand at the end of the game wins, so if you have managed to get a winning hand, complete with jacks – you are able to take the pot away and game play is over and can start again.
This game is common to Five Card Draw, so if you know how to play that game, then you will automatically be able to play 3 Hand Jacks or better. This is because both provide you with a sense of poker, but with a different outcome due to the jacks being higher than other cards in the hand. The more jacks you have, the better your chances are going to be for winning the pot in the middle with the bets that have been placed in it.
