Essentially three card games in one (up to three separate hands can be played) where- in players who achieve a two card total of 17 thru 22 will win, while two card total of below 16 will lose.
Played with a standard 52 card deck. Players begin the game by betting hand 1, hand 1 and 2, or hand 1,2 and 3.
All aces equal eleven.
At this time the player will also have the option of placing a bet on the field, betting that their dealt card will fall within the field numbers. This must be done before any cards are dealt.
Once all bets are made the dealer then deals each player 1 card face up. Then he lays the “Flop” face down in front of him from his right to leftt. Here is where the field bets are either paid or taken by the dealer. Field bets are only paid or taken at this time.
After seeing their dealt card, the player may choose to raise (double their bet) on hand 1, hand 2, or hand 3. All raises must be equal to the original bet: no more.
Dealer next turns 1st flop card over.
Players one card is then paired (numerically added) with this first flop card to make hand 1. If the total of those two cards is 17 or better, player is paid on bet and raise according to payoff schedule marked hand 1. If amount is less than 16, bets and raises are taken. If it is 16, it is a push. This hand is now over.
Above procedure is repeated with the dealer turning the 2nd flop card over, pairing it with players same card, taking losing bets or paying accordingly to “schedule odds payoffs” (only if hand 2 was bet by player. If not, that player is finished for that game. This hand is now over.
3rd flop card is then turned by the dealer and payoffs made accordingly for hand 3, if bet by player.
End of Game: next game begins with a new shuffled deck.
Note, Strategy of play in Flop 22 is not in the card playing, essentially luck of the draw, but in the bets and raises, where-in raises are made by players after they view their dealt card.
