Poker Variant Badugi new at pokerstars.com

Wednesday, August 27th, 2008 by skylowlow

Badugi is a draw poker variant similar to triple draw, But instead of five cards the hands contain only four cards. There are three drawing rounds, where every player can trade zero to four cards from his hand.

The hand ranking of badugi differs a little bit from the “normal poker”. At the showdown certain cards must be removed to construct a one, two, three or four card badugi hand. All Players must discard one of any two suited cards and one of any paired cards from the four hole cards. A badugi hand with more cards beats a hand with fewer cards, e.g a three card badugi hand beats a two card badugi hand,

If two badugi hands containing the same number of cards the hand, the hand with the lower card is superior. As in lowball the ace is the lowest card. Therefore the badugi hand A 2 3 4 5 rainbow is the best possible hand.

You can find the poker variant badugi in the PokerStars-Software in the tab “Other Games”. Until now there is only an announcement that badugi is coming soon.
