  • If you are a seen player and the other player is blind, you are not allowed to demand a show. The seen player can only continue betting or drop out.
  • If both players are seen, either player in turn may pay twice the current stake for a show.

Teen Patti Ranking High To Low

img Trio - three cards of the same rank. Three aces are the best trio and three twos are the lowest.
img Straight run - three consecutive cards of the same suit.
img Normal run - three consecutive cards of any suit.
img Colour - any three cards of the same suit which are not in sequence.
When comparing two colors, compare the highest card; if these are equal compare the second; if these are equal too, compare the lowest. Thus the highest color is A-K-J and the lowest is 5-3-2.
img Pair - two cards of the same rank.
Between two such hands, compare the pair first, then the odd card if these are equal. The highest pair hand is therefore A-A-K and the lowest is 2-2-3.

img High Card - three cards that do not belong to any of the above types.
Compare the highest card first, then the second highest, then the lowest. The best hand of this type is A-K-J of mixed suits, and the worst is 5-3-2.
Any hand of a higher type beats any hand of a lower type - for example the lowest run 4-3-2 beats the best color A-K-J.
