In 5 Card Draw there are 2 main betting rounds. The first betting round starts once all the players have received their 5 cards and a final round after the players have discarded and received new cards. In most cases the betting limits double after the draw. Once everyone has had the chance to bet and raise each player that is still in the hand must reveal their best hand using their 5 cards.
- A maximum of one bet and four raises are permitted per round in a multi-handed pot.
- Check raising is permitted before and after the draw.
- Any card exposed by the dealer before the draw must be kept by the player.
- 5 cards make a playable hand. If dealing and drawing cards is finished, and less then 5 cards are in any player’s hand, it is a misdeal.
- Draw rules are subject to house change. In most cases a player may draw up to 4 cards during any one round.
- In the event you are asked by another player how many cards you drew, you are obligated to answer unless a betting action has taken place since your draw.
- During the draw an exposed card cannot be accepted. In the event of an exposed card the draw is completed in order and the exposed card is replaced by the next available card.
