3-5-7 Guts is a very complex and drawn out version of guts which is played with legs. The first player to win five legs wins. An unusual feature of 3-5-7 Guts is that the wild card changes during the game. 3-5-7 Guts is suitable for 3-8 players.
In order to begin play, players need to ante up. Because of how the game is played, the ante needs to be somewhat higher than the ante in other guts games in order to keep the pot high. To begin with, each player is dealt three cards. Starting with the player to the dealer’s left, players declare in or out. If a player declares out and the next player declares in, then the player before can change their declaration to in. In any case, in must stay in.
After declarations are complete, those players who are in compare hands, showing all hands. Any player who is out cannot see the hands. Threes are wild. The player with the worst hand pays an amount equal to what is in the pot to the player with the best hand. No money goes into or out of the pot.
Everyone gets two more cards, including those who declared out before. There is another round of declaration. Fives are wild. Again the cards are shown to whoever is in, and the worst hand pays the best hand.
Again, everyone gets two more cards. There is another round of declaration. Sevens are wild. This time everyone sees the cards. Again, the player with the worst hand pays the player with the best hand.
The cards are collected and re-shuffled. Everyone pays the ante again. The dealer passes the deck to the player to his left, and that player becomes the new dealer. The game continues until one player gets five legs.
A player gets a leg only if they are the only one to stay in for a round.
When a player gets five legs, they win the pot.3*5*7 Guts
