If a player makes a high hand and a low hand, they share the pot. If two players tie, the pot is split as evenly as possible. The odd chip goes to the player with the highest card by suit. If no one makes a high hand, the odd chip is divided among the players. In the event of a draw, the pot is split equally among the players. The other players in the game are not permitted to reveal their hand to others.
During the betting intervals, each player is allowed to bet. The aim is to minimize losses and maximize winnings. Some rules may require players to put an ante into the pot. This action is known as a call. The player then makes a bet. However, a raise means that the player intends to increase the amount of bets on the table. In the event of a tie, the player must call.
Players may raise their stakes after the ante. However, the amount of a raise can’t exceed the number of chips in the pot at any time. The player may raise his or her stake only if the previous players have raised theirs. The last person to raise may also call. Once the ante is called, the players may move to the next round. The game continues. The pot limit should be set accordingly. The stake may be as high as ten times the starting amount.
