The Play
The object of Three Card Poker is to have a better poker hand than the Dealer. The Players examine their cards and decide whether or not they want to play. If they do not think their cards are good enough to play against the Dealer, they can fold their hand and surrender their Ante and Bonus wagers. If they like their cards, the Player places their hand face-down and can place an additional Raise bet on top. 

In the Image below, all the Players chose to play and placed an additional Raise bet on top.

Once the Players have finished placing their Raise bets, the Dealer collects any folded cards and the Ante, Flush, and Straight Flush Bonus wagers of all the Players that immediately folded. 

Once the Dealer has collected all the folded Player cards, the Dealer reveals their cards. 

Three Card Poker 6

The Dealer is only allowed to play with a hand that has at least a Queen High or better. If the Dealer's Hand does not meet or exceed these qualifications, it is a Push and the Dealer pays out all Ante wagers with a 1-to-1 payout and neither the Player nor the Dealer wins the Bonus wagers. 

In the image below, the Dealer has a pair of 6s while the Right Player only has a King High. 

Three Card Poker 7

A pair always beats 3 Singles, so the Dealer wins and collects the Right Player's Ante, Raise, Pair Plus, and 6-Card Bonus wagers.

Three Card Poker 8

Next, the Middle Right Player has a 3-of a Kind while the Dealer only has a pair. 

Three Card Poker 9

A 3-of-a-Kind always beats a pair, so the Right Middle Player wins and the Right Middle Player gets 1-to-1 payout on his Ante and Raise wagers, as well as 30-to-1 payout on his Pair Plus wager and 5-to-1 payout on his 6-Card Bonus Wager. 

Three Card Poker 10

Next, the Middle Left Player has a Diamond Flush, while the Dealer only has a pair. 

Three Card Poker 11

A Flush always beats a pair, so the Middle Left Player wins and the Middle Left Player gets 1-to-1 payout on his Ante and Raise wagers. He also gets a 3-to-1 payout on his Pair Plus wager and 15-to-1 payout on his 6-Card Bonus Wager because his 3 Diamonds combined with the Dealer's 6 of Diamonds and Queen of Diamonds gives the Middle Left Player a 5-Card Flush. 

Three Card Poker 12

Finally, the Left Player and the Dealer both have pairs, but the Left Player's has a pair of 8s while the Dealer has a pair of 6s, so the Left Player wins the Hand. 

Three Card Poker 13

The Left Player wins a 1-to-1 payout for his Ante and Raise wagers, as well as a 1-to-1 payout for his Pair Plus wager. He doesn't qualify for a 6-Card Bonus Wager so he loses that wager. 

Three Card Poker 14

After the Dealer pays out all the wagers and collects all the cards, he clears his own Hand, and is ready for the next Hand.
