Players are dealt five cards followed by a round of betting. Each player draws their cards followed by another round of betting. There are three drawing rounds making four rounds of betting action.

A-5 Triple Draw Poker rules look for the lowest 5 cards with straights and flushes playing no part of the hand. The best hand would be A, 2, 3, 4, 5. The ace is always low. This is the same low ball rules as omaha hi/lo and stud hi/lo.

2-7 Triple Draw Poker rules look for the lowest 5 card hand with out making any other poker hand. This the exact opposite of regular poker. Ace is considered high always and straights and flushes are bad. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 would not be a good hand because its a straight. If you make a low hand but it is a flush it is also one of the worst hands in Triple draw poker. The best hand is therefore 2, 3, 4, 5, 7. The point is to make as bad a poker hand as possible. You can review the hand ranking chart just start from the bottom and work your way up.
