Basic Five Card Draw

This is five-card Draw Poker without any stipulations, except for designated wild cards. The dealer determines if there will be any wild cards at all. The dealer also determines how many draws there will be, as well as the maximum number of cards each player will be allowed to draw each time. “Two draws of two”, for example, would mean that each player will have two opportunities to discard as many as two cards in exchange for two new ones from the deck.

Typically, a betting round precedes and ensues each draw, so there is always one more betting round than there are draws. Two draws, for example, would mean three betting rounds (deal, 1st betting round, 1st draw, 2nd betting round, 2nd draw, 3rd and final betting round, showdown).Straight Draw Poker means there are no wild cards.
