Seven cards are dealt to each of you. Then you must arrange your hand into two hands. One will be a 5-card hand and the other a 2-card hand. The 5-card hand is the high hand, and the other hand is the second high hand. You must arrange the 5-card hand so that it outranks the 2-card hand (pair of kings and pair of six's- you cannot put the kings in the 2-card hand). The highest ranking 2-card hand is a pair of aces. You cannot form 2-card straights or flushes. The 5-card hand is ranked like a normal poker hand. (link to anchor) In order to win, you must beat both of the dealers hands or the banker's if a player is holding the bank. If you win one hand and the banker wins the other, it is a push and no money exchanges hands.
Try to make the 2-card hand as strong as possible while abiding by the 5-card/2-card ranking rule.
When you have a hand with no pairs, put the highest card in the 5-card hand and then the next two highest in the 2-card hand.
When you have one pair, place it in the 5-card hand, and put the highest two remaining cards in the 2-card hand.
When you are holding an ace or king and 2 pairs, put the 2 pairs in the 5-card hand and put the ace or king in the 2-card hand.
When you have 3 pair, put the highest one in your 2-card hand.
When you have a straight and 2 pair; play as two pair; ignore the straight.
When you have a five-card straight, play it in the 5-card hand. Play it the same way when you have a six card straight as well.
When you have a flush and 2 pair, you should play it as 2 pair. Ignore the flush.
When you have a flush, use the two highest cards you can in the 2-card hand without breaking up the flush to be used in the 5-card hand.
When you have a full house, use the pair in the 2-card hand and the 3 of a kind in the 5-card hand.
