Set poker is an ingenious variation of the game. The only set poker variation that I know of was popularized by the California group, but it’s also been called other names. The original set poker rules are simple. The set cards always come up the same.
The original rules do not include three of a kind cards. It’s important to note that the “third pair” cards are laid out differently from regular pair cards. When you lay down the first two cards in the same way, your first set card will be placed between the second and third card laid down.
This was a good idea for two reasons. First, the next card would normally go right next to the first card in the first set. Second, when you lay down your third set card, it would naturally be the second card of the first set.
When you lay down your first two cards, they are always called sets. But, the first two sets always come up the same. You can pick up cards and put them into any one of your sets, or into the extra set.
When you lay down your third set card, the set containing the additional cards will go to the extra set. Lay down the extra set cards in this order. First, place the next card that you are going to play next to the first card in the first set. Then, place the next card in the second set on top of the first card in the second set.
This gives you a chance to pick up any of your sets and put them into another set. Now, the third set you have already picked up should go to the extra set, which goes right next to the first set.
If the first two cards came up the same, you will be dealt a different set of cards. When you have laid down your third set card, the cards that were in the first two sets will be in the third set. The last set will usually contain cards that you didn’t have in the second set. There may be cards in the third set that you did not have in the second set.
You could also lay down a pair of three cards. Lay down a three card spread on top of your first set and the third set. The final set that comes up will probably contain more cards than you had in the first two sets. Since you’ll probably be laying down cards that you didn’t have in the second set, this can work out OK.
You could try laying down five cards instead of a three-card spread. Five cards will not always produce the same effect. It’s interesting to experiment with the various methods.
The key is to lay down cards slowly. Sometimes you have to move your hand up to the second round of lay down cards. You might also have to move your hand back up to the second round of lay down cards if your cards are all the same as they were in the first set.
Most of the time you can take a chance and lay down a three card spread. Try laying down three cards and see what happens. It will probably be the same as laying down three cards if your first set cards are identical.
Usually the three-card spread is too slow. Usually people will lay down four cards. Then they will move up to the second round of lay down cards. Then they might lay down four cards, or they might decide that four cards is too slow and switch to the fifth round of lay down cards.
