Let It Ride

Yes, another variation on five-card stud poker and much the same as the concept behind Caribbean Stud.  This game first appeared in 1994, and has a lower house edge than that of its counterpart.  There is not however a progressive jackpot.  Of course you'll  be sitting at a blackjack style table again.  They seem to most conducive to card games. 

There are three betting options which you must bet all at the beginning.  However, you have the option of pulling back two of the bets as the hand progresses.  Keep in mind you are not betting against the dealer's hand, just on your own hand.  Once you place your bets, the dealer will deal you and the other players three cards face down from a single deck.  Then two more cards are dealt face-down in front of the dealer as common or community cards for all the players.  These two cards are "shared" by all the players. 

Now you'll want to look at your own three cards.  After doing this you have the option of letting all three bets ride, or pull back the first bet.  If you decide to let it ride, just slide your cards under your first chip.  To pull your first bet, scratch the table with your cards and the dealer will push  back your bet.

After all of you have done this, the dealer will pull the first common card over.  Based on the results of this, the player can let the second bet ride or pull it back using the same procedure as previously mentioned.  Then put your cards under your first chip and the dealer will turn the final common card.  The dealer will then take your cards and turn them, and will either pay you or take your remaining bet.

Tips:

After looking at your three initial cards and the community cards are still hidden, let it ride when you have a pair of 10's or better.  Pull your bet if not. 

If you have four parts of a flush after the first common card is turned also let it ride. 

Do not chase after 4 card straights.
