Red Dog

Red Dog is a banking game. It is also called High Card Pool. It has some variations and the game variations are Slippery Sam, Shoot and Polish Red Dog. It is also known as Yablon, Ace-deuce, In between and Between the sheets. It was introduced in Nevada in the 1980’s.
It is played with a 52 deck card. Only three cards are played per hand. The cards two through ten are worth their face value. The jacks are worth 11, Queen is worth 12, Kings 13 and Aces is valued 14. The number of players varies form two to ten. The players first place equal stake into the pot. The players are then given 5 cards each. The players can look at their cards. Now it is the turn of the players to make the bet. Each player gets a chance to bet. The amount of bet placed should be at least the amount of the ante. The stake is placed next to the pot. After the each player places the bet, the dealer takes two card from the top of the deck and shows it to the player and adds it face up to the bottom of the deck (called burning a card). The player can decide to if he wants to raise the bet. Raising a bet places the amount initially wagered on the bet and the payout amount is doubled. If the bet is not raised, Then the payout will be according to the table and the betting amount is not raised. The dealer then deals the third card. The player is a winner if the value of the third card falls between the values of the other two cards.
The bets are paid out in even money. The raised bets are paid out according to a scale. The better closeness of the card values, the better the payout. The payouts are usually based on the spread. ‘Spread’ is the number of card values that lie between the two cards. One card spread pays 5:1. Two cards spread pays 4 to 1. 3 cards spread pays 2 to 1 and 4 to 11 card spreads pays even money. If the cards dealt by the dealer are consecutive, then the situation is called a ‘tie’ and the player keeps the money. The hand is ended.
After a player finishes the turn, the players’ cards and the dealt cards are set aside and then it is the next player’s turn. The player then places his bet against whatever the pot now contains. If the pot becomes empty or becomes less than the minimum bet, then each player places the stake again.
The strategy advice is to Raise only if the Spread is 7 or better. There are 13 cards between Deuces to Ace. So only if the other 6 cards appear, the player looses. A spread of 7 gives the player 54% chance of winning. From there on upward, the percentage of winning chance increases to upto 85% at Spread 11. Spread below 7 gives the house its edge and should be at all times avoided.
