    In Vegas (and maybe elsewhere in Nevada?), the dealer gets five cards, as does the player. In many other jurisdictions, the dealer gets six cards.

    My understanding is that dealer getting five cards=Crazy 4 Poker. Dealer getting six cards=4 Card Poker. Is that correct?

    Because of this observation, I really only play Crazy 4 Poker. I can't tell you how many times I've lost to that damned sixth card in New Orleans, Atlantic City etc. It's actually enough that I stopped playing 4 Card Poker altogether, and just wait for my Vegas trips to play Crazy 4 Poker instead.

    Anyone else have similar experiences?

    I recently saw someone playing Four Card Poker in DE, not betting the ante at all, and just playing "Aces Up" and the progressive. I guess that's similar to playing the slots :peace:. Didn't know you could play like that. Usually, I stay away from four card, and haven't seen Crazy4 outside of Vegas.

    Here are some links to game strategies if anyone's interested.

    Correct. There are other differences as well....C4P has an additional bet (super bonus, which must be equal to the ante). The bonus bets are slightly different; queens up for C4P and aces up for 4CP. In C4P the dealer qualifies with king high, in 4CP I believe the dealer automatically qualifies (not 100% sure on this one). Finally, you can only triple down with aces or better in C4P whereas you can triple down whenever you choose in 4CP.
