The 3’s and 9’s usually represents the wild cards in this game, and any poker player who is dealt with a 4 face up is generally given an extra card. The following are the instructions on how to play the game.
Collect the bet from each card player and then commence the game by providing three cards to every player; the first two cards should face down while the third one faces up. The player is dealt with an additional card face down, if he or she obtains 4 face up. Pursue with a round bet.
Deal the 4th, 5th and the 6th cards face up to every player, with the betting round after every card is dealt. Bear in mind the rule of the 4’s that are actually dealt face up. Deal face down for the 7th and the final card to every player.
Conclude with a betting round and determine the winner. The three outs, the four bases and the nine innings of the baseball poker form the basis of an entertaining variation. The players with 4’s face up will have more than the seven cards.
Adding the wild cards normally creates stronger succeeding poker hands, and you will frequently need the full house to win. Your positioning on the table often dictates your style of playing. For example, if you are the last one to play, you may try to trick and take the whole pot if appropriate while if you are the first one to play holding a very strong hand, you can bet small and then allow the players behind you to increase the stakes. Do not expect to find the Poker Baseball at the casinos, such a game with the wild cards is strictly played for fun.
