The Basics of 2-7 Triple Draw
New to the game? Worry not, as we’ve got you covered with a brief rundown of the rules and gameplay. In this draw game format, you’ll get three attempts at improving your holdings through discarding and receiving new cards. There are four betting rounds, one before the first round of drawing, and subsequently, one after every draw has been completed.
Starting with five cards in your hand, you can draw as many cards as you’d like on every street. The best possible hand you’re looking for is 2-3-4-5-7, a direct reference to the name of the game. In this lowball game, all you’re looking for is the lowest possible five-card combination without making a straight or a flush. An ace is a bad card, and you’re also looking to avoid starting with a six in your hand.
As you’re watching this stream on Twitch, you’ll notice the flow of the game, and how much bluffing goes into it. Based on the number of cards your opponent draws you can asses the strength of their hand, emphasizing the importance of having position, giving you a chance to adjust to your opponents’ decisions.
