Blackjack Top 3

Blackjack Top 3 is a variation of traditional Blackjack game that allows players to place a side bet based on a 3-card hand using the Dealer's one facing up card and the Player's two initial cards to form a 3-card Poker Hand. 

The object of the game is to have a winning hand of a Suited 3-of-a-Kind, Straight Flush, or 3-of-a-Kind! 

The Bet
Just like in Blackjack, all bets must be placed in their respective squares before the dealer deals.

The Deal
Just like Blackjack, the Dealer deals one face up card to every player in a clockwise rotation, and then deals one face up card to himself. Then, the dealer deals another face up card to every player in the same order, and then deals one face down card to himself.

The Right Player has a 6 of Clubs and a 7 of Clubs, so when he combines that with the Dealer's 8 of Clubs, he has a Straight Flush and wins a 180-to-1 payout!
