How to Play High Card Flush

Players start with a mandatory Ante bet and an optional side bet, similar to Caribbean Stud Poker. The player and dealer then receive seven cards. Players pick up cards and determine whether they would like to play. The goal is to get a higher number of flush cards than the dealer. For example, a hand with four hearts, two clubs and a spade have four flush cards.

If the player has more flush cards than the dealer, it is a win. If the dealer has more, the house wins. If the dealer and player have the same number of flush cards, the ranks of the cards determine the winner, with the ace being high.

The player determines if the hand should be folded or played. A folded hand immediately loses the Ante and side bet. A player that wants to stay in the hand may raise an amount equal to the Ante on flushes of four cards or fewer, two time the Ante on a five-card flush, and three times the bet on six and seven cards.

After players raise or fold, the dealer shows the house hand. The dealer much have a three-card nine-high flush or better to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify, Antes win and raises push.
