Red Dog or Red Dog poker, is a game of chance played with cards.

In American Casinos, the name Red Dog is now used for a different banking game (also called Ace-Deuce, In Between or Yablon) in which two cards are dealt face-up, and the player bets on whether a third card will rank between the first two cards

Rules of Red Dog:

Number of players: anywhere from 2 to 10 players

Each player places one chip in the pot (if there are no more chips in the pot each player will have to place another chip in)

How to place a bet:

Players check the cards they are dealt, the first player will then place a bet equal to the pot amount. (Wager may not exceed the number of chips in pot) If a player does not want to bet they still need to place a chip into the pot. Once this is done players will show their cards.

Payables explained

Firstly, the player with the highest card of the same suite will collect the pot. Secondly, if the player doesn’t have the highest card they must show their full hand and add the same amount of chips to the pot.

Red Dog dealing:

Players draw a card, the highest card will determine the first dealer. The dealer shuffles and deals the cards one at a time to every player facing down clockwise. The dealer will deal 5 cards for each player. Furthermore, if there are 8 or more players will receive 4 cards only) the rest of the cards are placed face down.

General rules of Red Dog

Standard 52-card deck. Poker chips or counters are needed. Cards rank from ace (high) to 2
