Winning in OFC Poker
In Chinese Poker the goal of the game is to make a better poker hand than your opponent. On the end of your hand 13 cards will be present on your playing field. You have to divide the cards on the 3 lines on your playing field. When all lines are completed on your side and your opponents side you will compare these lines. This way you can see who has created the best hand.
The existing poker hands are sorted as follows (from high to low)
How to compare your hands
To compare your finished hand with your opponent’s hand, you take a look at who has the best poker combination.
- When your opponent has Q–Q on the top line and you have A–A, you win on the top line. A pair of Aces is worth more than a pair of Queens.
- When your opponent has 6–6–6–10–J on the mid line, he has Trips or Three of a Kind. In order to win this line, you’ll have to make a better combination than this. With only a High Card, One Pair or Two Pair you won’t win. Also any Trips below 666 won’t let you win. You’ll have to do better than that. A Straight or better will do.
- When your opponent has 4–4–4–4–8 on the bottom line he has a very strong combination: Four of a Kind. In order to beat this you would need a higher Four of a Kind or even better like a Straight Flush.
- When you have A–A–A on top you have the best possible hand on this line, your opponent can not beat this combination.
