3 5 7 Poker How to Play

Dear Mark,
Just wanted to know if you knew anything about this new game called 3-5-7 Poker? It¹s being played here in the Mississippi casinos. What do you think of it? Bill S.

3-5-7 Poker is a simple poker-based game recently finding a home in many a
casino from sea to shining sea. It is actually a three-game-high edifice in
which the player bets on both 3-card and 5-card hands, and may also bet on a
7-card poker hand, with payoffs set by the standard pay table (see below).

Play begins with the player making at least two wagers. He must bet the
3-card and the 5-card hands, saving the optional 7-card hand for dessert.
Players can bet different amounts on each hand, subject to the casino¹s
table minimum and maximum.
The dealer then deals each player three cards, and four cards to herself to be used as "community cards." The player reviews his three cards and then considers the option of

surrendering his last hand (seven-card poker), or letting it stand.

The first game, poker with three cards, is based on the first three cards
dealt to you. Here, you need a pair or better to win.

3-Card Hand Pay Table
Hand Pays
Straight flush 40 to 1
Three of a kind 25 to 1
Straight 6 to 1
Flush 4 to 1
Pair 1 to 1

Next, you play the obligatory five-card round, where the dealer exposes his
first two community cards, making this the five-card game. (Yeah, I know,
the dealer was a "she" a moment ago, and is now a "he". Odd things happen.)
To win, you¹ll need 6¹s or better.

5-Card Hand Pay Table

Hand Pays
Royal flush 500 to 1
Straight flush 100 to 1
4 of a kind 40 to 1
Full House 12 to 1
Flush 9 to 1
Straight 6 to 1
3 of a kind 4 to 1
2 pair 3 to 1
Pair (6¹s or better) 1 to 1

Finally, the dealer (Guess) exposes the last two cards, and you are now
playing seven-card poker, but only the best five of seven cards are used.
Without at least two pair (10¹s high or better), you lose.

7-Card Hand Pay Table

Hand Pays
Royal flush 100 to 1
Straight flush 20 to 1
4 of a kind 7 to 1
Full House 5 to 1
Flush 4 to 1
Straight 3 to 1
3 of a kind 2 to 1
2 pair (10¹s or better) 1 to 1

Here¹s a summary of the house¹s edge on each of the three games.
On three-card: 3.49%,
on five-card: 4.12%, and ...
on seven-card: 3.28%.

Like the game itself, strategy for 3-5-7 poker is quite simple. The player
should never surrender the 7-card hand since it has the lowest house edge.
Also, because the player may bet any amount on any hand, he should bet the
most on the 7-card hand, and the least on his 5-card hand.
You asked, Bill, if I knew the game (answered) and what I think of it (stay
tuned). All three games have more than my threshold 2% casino advantage, so
for this columnist, it¹s a triple thumbs-down ... unless, of course, you¹re
running the casino.
