Poker Dictionary




(also known as Badougi, Paduki or Padooki): a draw poker variant similar to triple draw, but with hand values more in line with lowball. The betting structure and overall play of the game is identical to a standard poker game using blinds, but, unlike traditional poker which involves a minimum of five cards, players' hands contain only four cards at any one time. During each of three drawing rounds, players can trade zero to four cards from their hands for new ones from the deck, in an attempt to form the best badugi hand and win the pot. The winner of the pot is either alone at the end of the round (with other layers folding) or has the best hand at showdown.

Example: A234 of different suits is the best possible hand in Badugi.
