 Player’s Choice Poker - Rules & How to Play 

Player's Choice Poker Rules

The Play – Player’s Choice Poker. Player’s Choice Poker is the copyrighted and patented poker variation game, the rights to which on December 1, 2001 were owned by John Feola, doing business as New Vision Gaming of Medford, Massachusetts, and which may be transferred or assigned. Player’s Choice Poker must be played according to the following rules in Colorado:

  1. Player’s Choice Poker may be played only on tables displaying the Player’s Choice Poker table layout. A single deck of fifty-two cards will be used to deal either six three-card hands or six five-card hands, at the discretion of the retail licensee. The object of the game is for each player to choose one or more hands of cards which will qualify for payment pursuant to a pay schedule. More than one hand can qualify for payment and players may wager on more than one hand. More than one player may wager on the same hand.
  2. Before the dealer deals any cards, each player must place a wager on one or more of the six numbered circles in front of the player’s position, with each circle representing the hand of cards the player is wagering on.
  3. At the discretion of the retail licensee, a player who wishes to tip the dealer by placing bets for the dealer shall place the tip(s) above or below the player's wagers at the same time that the player places the player’s wagers. A tip bet shall not be required to be in any minimum amount, and the amount of each tip bet shall not exceed the amount of the player’s own wager on the same hand. Winning tip bets shall be paid at the same odds as winning players’ bets.
  4. Immediately before each round of play, the dealer shall shuffle and cut the cards. At the discretion of the retail licensee, the dealer may burn the top card. The dealer shall deal one card at a time, either face down or face up (at the discretion of the retail licensee), in rotation to each hand until either three cards or five cards are dealt to each of the six hands, as appropriate for the variation of play being used.
  5. An incorrect number of cards dealt to any hand constitutes a misdeal with respect to that hand only, voiding all players’ wagers on that hand. When the cards are dealt face down, exposed cards do not constitute a misdeal and the dealer will turn the card(s) over and continue to deal. If a card falls from the table, that hand is dead and the all players’ wagers on the hand are void.
  6. After all six hands have been dealt, the dealer shall announce each hand’s value or rank and shall determine whether each hand qualifies for an award according to the pay schedule in use, which must appear on the table layout or on signage at the table. The dealer shall collect all losing wagers and shall pay all winning wagers according to the one of the following pay schedules:
    1. Three-Card Hands (only the highest ranked hand qualifying for payment shall be paid on each different wager):

      Straight flush 40 to 1
      Three of a kind 30 to 1
      Straight 6 to 1 Flush 4 to 1 Pair 1 to 1

    2. Five-Card Hands (only the highest ranked hand qualifying for payment shall be paid on each different wager):

      Royal flush $5,000 Without regard to amount of wager
      Straight flush $1,000 Without regard to amount of wager
      Four of a kind 150 to 1
      Full house 50 to 1
      Flush 30 to 1
      Straight 15 to 1
      Three of a kind 5 to 1
      Two pairs 2 to 1
      One pair 1 to 1

  7. After all wagers have been paid, the dealer shall place the cards from all hands in the discard rack and may reshuffle the deck for the next game.
