3 card poker
Can someone explain to me how the dealer can win with a straight when I have a flush
Normal poker is straight, flush, full house, in that order
This has happened a few times now and no I don't have a screen shot to show
Yep that one does come as a surprise, but that's the rules for 3-card poker. Flush is lower value than a straight.
The reason is that when you only have 3 cards, flushes will happen more frequently than 3 cards in a row (a straight), so it's a weaker hand.
The rules page does show this too.
But I was as surprised as you when I first learned this.
