Mind Sports Olympiad : 5 Card Draw

Classes & Courses

Played Pot-limit. One of the six events that qualifies for the Amateur Poker World Championship.

Five-card draw (also known as a Cantrell draw) is a poker variant that is considered the simplest variant of poker. As a result, it is often the first variant learned by most new players.

Play begins with each player being dealt five cards, one at a time, all face down. The remaining deck is placed aside, often protected by placing a chip or other marker on it. Players pick up the cards and hold them in their hands, being careful to keep them concealed from the other players, then a round of betting occurs. If more than one player remains after the first round, the “draw” phase begins. Each player specifies how many of their cards they wish to replace and discards them. The deck is retrieved, and each player is dealt in turn from the deck the same number of cards they discarded so that each player again has five cards.

A second “after the draw” betting round occurs beginning with the player to the dealer’s left or else beginning with the player who opened the first round (the latter is common when antes are used instead of blinds). This is followed by a showdown, if more than one player remains, in which the player with the best hand wins the pot.
