Let it Ride may seem familiar to most people because it is based
on the popular card game, poker. It uses the same hands found in
the standard five-card game. However, in Let it Ride, you are not
playing against any opponents that you need to beat, so experience
is not a required aspect in this game to be successful at play.
Also, you may not converse or communicate in anyway with the other
players, because a portion of the whole hand is hidden. If you were
to know what the other player’s cards are, then you would
gain an edge over the casino, which is unfair. In this article we
will discuss the basics of Let it Ride poker.
Easy to understand
Let it Ride poker is an easy game to play and understand, it can
be played as an online game or land based, and it isn't threatening
to play since you have no one to compete against, a player should
have little or no pressure on them. It is, however, necessary that
you have basic knowledge on the hands in poker and how they rank
up to each other, and also some basic strategy under your belt would
be a good measure to ensure that you do well.
Objective of the game
The objective is to put together poker hands that are winners (at
least two tens or better) using the three cards the player receives
and the two community cards laid out by the dealer. Let it Ride
is comparable to a blackjack table in size and has enough space
to hold 7 players. A standard deck of cards, containing 52 cards,
is used by the dealer which gets shuffled by an automatic card shuffling
device, which is produced by the creators of Let it Ride. The game
consists of three betting circles, found in front of the player,
which are marked with a 1, 2, and a $ and a hand of five cards.
At the start of the round, each player will place a bet of equal
value in all three circles, usually the table will have a minimum
required amount for bets, most being 5 dollars.
Letting your bets ride
In Let it Ride, players may take back bets as the cards are given,
so in truth, only 1/3 of a players bet is really at stake since
players have the option of pulling two of their bets during the
game. The dealer will then pass out three face down cards to each
player and place two cards face down on the table, which are known
as community cards. The dealer must then discard the fourth card
and begin with the fifth card, flipping it over so it is face up.
Afterwards, the players look over their cards and choose if they
will take their first bet back (commonly known as 'Pull Bet') or
allow it to stay in play (known as 'Let it Ride). Players will have
a second time to do this before the conclusion of the round, when
the last community card is overturned and the winners are paid their
winnings and the bets placed by the losers are taken up.
