Just like poker, Let it Ride employs only one standard deck of cards. To start, each player will make three bets. There will be a house minimum in each case, and will be indicated on the table format, and your bets have to be at least those.
Clearly marked, there are betting Circles marked 1, 2, and $. After your three bets, the dealer will deal three cards to each player at the table, face down, and two more open cards (called community cards, like in Texas Hold em, to be used by all the players), also face down.
Each player views their three cards, and if desired, may cancel his bet in Circle 1. This is done by telling the dealer to give it back. However, you can also “let it ride” and stay in in the game. Now if you let the bet ride it must remain until the end of the game. Also if a bet is taken away, it is now out of play..
At this point, the dealer will turn one of his cards over. Again, the player has the choice to take his bet back from Circle 2 or let it ride.
It must be mentioned that the bet decision in Circle 1 does not affect the action in Circle 2. As this is done, betting is over, as the Circle $ bet cannot be removed. The dealer then uncovers his second card.
The two dealer cards are called community cards, just as in Texas Hold em and Omaha, and are used to complete the hand of each player.
The object of all this is to achieve a hand with a pair of 10s or better. If you have this, you are a winner. This is an automatic win. Unlike most poker games, there is no card substitution or bluffing. Its just a game of who can make the best hand.
Is there a strategy then? Yes, and its simple and effective. Learn it before you start playing however, and you will see yourself a winner more times than not.
See the guide below but put simply, if you have been dealt three bad cards in the first instance, and have no pair of 10s, ask you bet back from Circle 1.
There is no risk, that if the two community cards gives you a pair of 10s, you will win anyway.
If you have been dealt the components of a flush or royal flush, you can your Circle 1 bet ride. Remember that as each community card is shown, you can judge your chances, and limit losses, or maximize profits. See the chart below.
