  • Then each Player who has made a bet is dealt 2 cards.
  • There will be 3 more bets:
  • After the cards are dealt
  • After the dealer reveals the first 3 cards out of the 5 pool cards.

According to this varient, the minimum number of players to start the hand is 2 and a maximum of players is 6.
