Steps For Playing “Let It Ride”

  • To start with, the player will have three equal bets out and then the three cards for each player will be dealt face-down and two face-down to the dealer. Once all the cards are dealt you can have a look at those cards.
  • After that, you can make the decision that if you want your first bet back or just let it ride. You are also not allowed to show your hand to other players while this process.
  • After everyone has decided what to do, that dealer will come in the game and will turn over one card of its two cards and all the players will use that card of the dealer as their part of a final 5-card poker hand.
  • After you saw that card, you have a decision to make and it is whether you are to let it ride again or bet back the second time. Keep in mind that you can only change your second bet at this point. And whatever you chose on your first bet sticks. You are not able to change that now.
  • After all the players have made their decision, the dealer will go ahead and show his second card. This will also complete every player’s 5-card poker hand.
  • If you think that you are winning hand on your pair of tens, then you are welcome to choose let it ride and if you let them all ride, you will be paid three times more. You take back your first bet and you will only be paid two times and if you pull all of the bets except the third, then you will only get paid once and if you do not have any hand at all, the dealer will go ahead and take all of your bets that are left on the table by your side.
