How the game is scored
A player gets a point for every winning hand. A player that wins all three hands from one player the winner’s points will be 2. If the player wins all 3 hands against all the players then he/she will have as many points the number of players. There are some special hands that get more points than normal when you win. Here is the list of hands and the points against them.
- The highest, a royal flush on a middle hand gets 24 points.
- If the royal flush is on the backhand then you get 12 points.
- A straight flush, when placed in the middle hand, gets 20 points.
- The same hand on a backhand will get 10 points.
- Four of a kind is the next highest ranking hand and gets 16 points when placed in the middle hand and 8 points when in a backhand.
- Full House, on the other hand, gets 8 points in a middle hand and 4 points in a backhand.
Apart from considering the hands separately, if the cards are considered all together, the losing hands get extra points in case they have the following combinations:
Six pairs: This is when all the cards together have six pairs and a single odd card. If more than one player has this hand then the one with the highest value pair wins 18 points.
3 straights: all the three hands will have straights separately. This is when the numbers are consecutive to each other. Again if there are two players with three straights then the player with the highest valued straight in the backhand will win. If the highest value in the backhand is the same for both the next to be compared is the middle hand and the last to be compared is the first hand. This hand also gets 18 points.
3 flushes: When all the three hands of a player are flushes then he/she will get 18 points. If there are a number of players with three flushes, then the highest value flush wins will win the point.
