2-7 Triple draw

Deuce to Seven (2-7) Triple Draw is a form of lowball that is not widely popular. You won't see it spread in your local home game. Some live high-stakes cash games will include Triple Draw in their mixed-game format. But it's difficult to find low stakes versions, let alone any limit of Triple Draw.

Introduction to 2-7 Triple draw

Despite the lack of interest in brick and mortar rooms, Triple Draw has been gaining popularity online.

The goal is to make the best low hand. The Ace is considered a high card and the deuce is the lowest. The absolute nut low is 7-5-4-3-2. Hence, the name "Deuce to Seven". Both straights and flushes count against your hand, so you are seeking a smooth low hand. The second best low is 7-6-4-3-2 followed by 7-6-5-3-2.

Triple Draw is most often played in a fixed-limit betting structure, but can also be played pot-limit and no-limit. In addition to the initial betting round that occurs after the cards have been dealt, there are three rounds to draw cards with a round of betting following each draw

Triple Draw is not like other lowball games where A-2-3-4-5 is considered the low. Remember, the Ace is the highest card in Triple Draw and the nut low is 2-3-4-5-7.

How to play 2-7 Triple draw

This sample hand is fixed-limit 2-7 Triple Draw with $50/$100 stakes. The blinds are $25/$50.

There is a dealer button used in this game that moves clockwise. The blinds are to the immediate left of the button.

 

DEAL: Five cards are dealt down to each player.

 

YOUR HAND: You have a low of A-Q-7-5-2. You will eventually decide to discard the high cards – the Ace and the Queen.

Your hand

1st betting round

The initial bet is $50. The player to the immediate left of the big blind, AKA Under the Gun, is the first to act and has the option to call $50, raise to $100, or fold.

If a player is facing a raise, they must call, fold, or re-raise. The big blind is last to act. If the pot has not been raised and other opponents have only called the $50 big blind, the big blind has the option to check or raise to $100. If the big blind checks, the betting round is over and the players move on to the first draw. If the big blind raises, betting continues until the action makes its way back around the table. If a raise goes uncalled, the raiser wins the pot without revealing their hole cards.

 

Once all remaining bets and raises have been called, it is time for players to draw cards.

 

FIRST DRAW: You can discard zero to all five cards. A player that discards nothing is “standing pat.”

 

YOUR HAND: You exchanged the Carte As de pique and Carte Dame de carreau for a Carte 7 de pique and Carte 8 de coeur. Your hand now includes a pair of sevens.

2nd betting round

On this betting round and all subsequent betting rounds, action begins with the small blind.

On the first draw, players may check or bet $50. If a bet is made, players must call, fold, or raise. The button is last to act. If no one has bet, the button has the option to check or bet. If the button checks, the betting round is complete and the players proceed to the second draw. If the button raises, betting continues until the action makes its way back around the table. If no one calls a bet or raise, the bettor wins the pot without revealing their hole cards.

 

Once all remaining bets and raises have been called, it is time for players to draw cards for a second time.

 

SECOND DRAW: You discard the Carte 7 de coeur and draw the Carte 8 de carreau.

 

YOUR HAND: You're drawing to a good low 8-7-5-2, but hold a pair of eights.

3rd betting round

The betting limit is now $100 from here on out. Action starts with the small blind and players may check or bet $100. If a bet is made, players must call, fold, or raise. The button is last to act. If no one has bet, the button has the option to check or bet. If the button checks, the betting round is complete and the players proceed to the third draw. If the button bets, betting continues until the action makes its way back around the table. If no one calls a bet or raise, the bettor wins the pot without revealing their hole cards.

 

Once all remaining bets and raises have been called, it is time for players to draw cards for the final time.

 

THIRD DRAW: You discard the Carte 8 de carreau and pick up the Carte 3 de coeur.

 

YOUR HAND: You made an 8-7-5-3-2 low. It is technically the 11th best hand in Triple Draw.

4th betting round

The betting limit is $100. Action starts with the small blind. Players may check or bet $100. If a bet is made, players must call, fold, or raise. The button is last to act. If no one has bet, the button has the option to check or bet. If the button checks, the betting round is complete and the players proceed to the third draw. If the button bets, betting continues until the action makes its way back around the table. If no one calls a bet or raise, the bettor wins the pot without revealing their hole cards.
