    I'm just beginning to learn how to play 3 Card Poker. Does anyone know where I could play with some low table limits? How much are the lowest limits? Is low limit 3?Card Poker available at maybe Sam's Town, Orleans, Downtown? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    PH had $5 Three-Card-Poker last weekend, and they had it at that minimum on weekends in June and April when I went too.

    Paris and Bally's has it for $5 pretty much around the clock. Downtown, take your pick.

    Your neighbor says $5 table, which should be all there is downtown, $20 per hand if you if you stay after seeing your cards. $15 otherwise, always play the 6th card circle.

    The six-card bonus has a huge house advantage, around 15%. It's at the CET properties although all the other places have their own take on a bonus. Even if you win 5k on the 5-card royaI flush, if you play a reasonable amount of time playing three-card poker, you will lose it all. The only win is really the top prizes which is like winning the lottery. However, I did sit at the next table over at PH when someone won the million last July. I was also there at PH when someone won the 100k last week. If I didn't know whether I would have won or not, I would not play it. I only play it because I would cut off my legs and kick myself in the head if I got it but didn't bet on it. I probably lost a few thousand on that bet already if not more.

    The only sucker bet I'll do is the pair plus.

    Same here. Not sure where exactly I would draw the line, but safe to say it's somewhere between the 7% HA on PP vs the 15% HA on the 6 card.

    Not to mention PP is a loser about 74% of the time, compared to about 92% for the 6 card.

    The dealers are all trained to point out when you would have won on the 6 card but didn't play it. Whenever this happens after I've been at the table for awhile, I always reply "actually I wouldn't have won anything, because I would have already busted out if I was playing the 6 card on every hand!"

    This. I wouldn't play 3CP at all if I was worried about house edge in that game.

    My very first day learning the game, I got a straight flush twice within hours of each other.

    I's base my playing of "sucker bets" like the 6-card and the Pair Plus on how often you gamble. If you're a regular hitting the casinos a few times a week, in time you will definitely be a loser. If you're a typical gambler who might make a trip or three to Vegas every year, by all means go ahead and play them (as I do myself) because my chances of losing all that money on sucker bets is tempered by not being a chronic gambler hitting the tables every day.

    As for strategy, there is none. Play Q-6-4 or higher and fold everything else.

    I like to play this if I am watching a football game or some other sporting event

    Watched Sunday night football game at Paris this past weekend - 100$ lasted me almost four hours - and I just played blind - dealer did all work - hit a few really good hands to last that long
