Two and One Guts Poker

Two and One Guts Overview

Two and One Guts is similar to Monte Carlo, except that players must declare that they are in before they get the third card. Like other guts games, it can be played by 3-8 players.

To begin play, all players must ante up, which means that they put a small, equivalent amount of money in the pot. After the players have anted up, the dealer gives each player two cards, face down. The players examine their cards, and then they declare whether they are in or out. Since a player’s declaration could affect another player’s declaration, all players must declare at the same time.

Generally, this is done by the players each taking a coin into their hands, placing their hands under the table, and bringing up a closed fist onto the table. Players then open their fists, showing whether they are holding a coin or not. If the player is holding a coin, they are “in,” whereas an empty hand indicates that the player is out.

All the players who remain in flip their cards face up. The dealer gives each player one additional card, face up.

Hands are generally ranked as follows. The best possible hand is a straight flush, followed by three-of-a-kind, flush, straight, pair, and high card. There is some variation from house to house, and some places consider three-of-a-kind the best hand.

The player with the best hand takes the pot, while any other players who have stayed in must match the value of the pot. For example, if the pot was $2, the winner gets $2 and every other player who stayed in must put $2 in the pot.

The next round is played the same, and the game continues in this manner until only one person stays in. That player wins the pot, and the game ends.
