Maximum Number of Players: 16 (the table may only seat 6-8 players).
The Game Rules:
Players place 3 equal amounts in each of the 3 circles at their place on the table. Each of these must be at least the table minimum. Thus, if the table minimum is $5.00, the player must place a total of $15.00 on the table.
Players are each dealt 3 cards down. Do not touch your cards until the dealer places them in front of you. Two cards are dealt face down in font of the dealer. These are common cards that players can use, and they will be revealed later.
Players look at their cards without showing them to other players.
The dealer then asks each player, starting on the dealer's left, if that player would like to "pull back" one of the bets first placed. If a player has it pushed back, then that wager will not be collected if the player loses, nor will it be paid if the player wins.
After all players, have decided whether to pull back their first wager, the dealer reveals the first community card.

Let It Ride Poker Strategy:
The first wager should ride if you have:
- A pair of 10s or better
- Three consecutive cards to an open-ended straight flush
- Three "almost" consecutive cards to an open-ended straight flush, where at least two of them are 10s or better. Almost consecutive means three cards with only one hole, e.g. 9,J,Q.
The second wager should ride if you have:
- A pair of 10s or better
- Four cards to a flush
- 10, Jack, Queen, King of any suite
Leave if you manage to get ahead early. The vig will catch up to you.
