- n. A variety of poker in which the first card is dealt face down and then one face up. The ‘down card’ is then looked at, and the player having the highest card showing makes a bet if he chooses, and then the next on his left. Any player who refuses to ‘see’ this bet drops out A third card is then dealt, and so on until each remaining in the pool has five. After the betting is brought to a call, the down cards are shown, and the best poker combination wins all.
