How To Play High Card Flush At ECR 2018
Buy-in to the High Card Flush Side Event: €60
A fairly new game, High Card Flush debuted in Las Vegas back in 2011 and is a fast and easy to play game. This house-banked card game is played with a standard 52-card deck and lets you place several wagers during each round. Your goal in this suits-based game is to get several cards in the same suit, also known as a Flush.
With seven cards on one hand you battle the dealer for the best Flush. If you know and love poker, the call and fold structure of the game will be quite familiar, but even if you’re new to poker and similar games this game is great for beginners and long-time players alike. It’s you versus the dealer, so simply put, aim for a better Flush hand than the dealer to win.
You can join this ECR side event by registering for the side event at the registration desk with a €60 buy-in.
Once a seat opens up at the side event hand your buy-in ticket to the dealer to get your 100 chips to play with. Your goal is to turn these 100 chips into 1,000 to move on to the Side Event finals. The guaranteed prize pool is €1,000.
Playing High Card Flush
The game, like any other card based casino game, is played in rounds. Each round starts as you place the Ante wager and any optional side bets. The dealer and you then receive seven cards each.
- If you have two, three or four cards in your Flush you can raise by 1x your original Ante.
- If you have five cards in your Flush you can raise by 2x your original Ante.
- If you have six or seven cards in your Flush you can raise by 3x your original Ante.
- The best Flush hand wins and any side bets are reconciled.
- The best hand is based on a predetermined paytable.
The optional side bets are:
- Flush – Wins odds with a 4-card Flush or better in your hand.
- Straight Flush – Wins odds with a 3-card Straight Flush or better in your hand.
The Side Event Rules
- Each player registers to the High Card Flush tournament by handing one of their Side-Event tickets to the Dealer and the player receives a stack of 100 chips.
- The goal is to turn the 100 chips into 1,000 chips.
- Minimum bet is 5.
- Maximum bet is 50.
- Side Bet is 5.
- Each player is playing directly against the dealer.
- In the event both the Dealer and the Player have the same number of cards in their flush, the winning hand is determined by the highest ranking card (Ace – 2) of the flush in each hand. If the highest ranking card is the same in both hands, the second highest card is the determining factor, and so on.
- If both the number of cards and values are identical (players and dealers) the Ante and Raise are a push or tie. Successive cards of the same suit (a “straight flush”) has no significance (as it does in standard poker or in the Straight Flush wager).
- An Ace is the highest valued card.
- If the dealer’s hand does not meet or exceed a predetermined qualifying hand of a three card long flush 9-high flush, all remaining players will receive an even-money payment equal to their Ante wager and their Raise wager results in a push.
- If the Player’s hand ranks higher than the Dealer’s hand, the Ante and Raise wagers win and are paid even-money.
- If the Player’s hand ranks lower than the Dealer’s hand, the Ante and and Raise wagers win are lost and collected by the dealer.
- If the Player’s and Dealer’s hands tie, the Ante and Raise wagers push.
- A player cannot hand in several tickets at once and receive a higher chip stack.
- Re-entry is only allowed once a player has lost his chips.
- If a player wins a seat in the Final, the player is not eligible to enter the same tournament again with another ticket.
