Classic chinese poker rules

Other varieties of Chinese poker:

Classic Chinese poker is played by two to four players. The game is played openly. The opponents can see each others’ combinations.

Mis-set hand

The main rule is that the strength of combinations in the boxes shall diminish from back box to front, e.g., the strongest hand must be in back box, in middle – average in strength, and the weakest – in front.

Dealing rounds in Classic Chinese poker

At the beginning of the hand the players in turn get 5 card openly and lay them down into their boxes. Then they play 8 times more and with every lead they get 1 card openly and add them one by one to their boxes.

Fantasyland and its repetition

The player (or players) who made up QQ or higher at front box (his/her hand not being mis-set), goes to fantasyland mode in the next hand: they get 13 cards at once that are laid down into their boxes closely. The rest of the players play this hand in regular mode.

In laying down fantasyland, the player can get it again in the next hand if they lay down:

  • or Set in front box;
  • or quads or higher in back box;
  • or Full house or higher in middle box.

On default, the game is lead with a single repetition of fantasyland, e.g., a player may get fantasy no more than twice in a row.
