Card Put and Take
Card Put and Take is named after the game of put and take and it is played by using a teetotum that is specially marked. This is a game that has a private bank and is similar to red dog.
- A standard 52 card deck.
- Betting chips.
A minimum of two players are needed and as many as eight.
The objective of the game is to not to hold on the “put” deal and to hold on the “take” deal the cards that have the same rank as the cards turned over by the banker.
Choice of Banker/Dealer
Choosing the first banker/dealer is done by a high cut.
Shuffle and Cut
The shuffle and cut in Card Put and Take is standard.
Five cards are dealt to each player with the cards face up. He deals them one at a time to each player clockwise and he does not deal any cards to himself.
Payments in this game are from one chip to 16 chips. The value of each chip is determined up front.
First, players look at their cards. Then, the put deal is dealt. Then, the five cards are dealt face up on the table one at a time. Once each card is dealt any player that has a card with the same denomination must pay more chips into the pool. With each card, the payment doubles . So, one chip for the first card that is turned over, two chips for the second card turned over, four chips for the third, eight chips for the fourth card, and 16 chips for the fifth card turned over. When a player has two cards or more that have the same rank as the banker’s card is required to pay for each of the cards. No payments are made by the banker.
Then, the five cards are taken from the table and placed face up on the deck’s bottom by the banker. Then, the dealer deals five more cards for the take deal. Chips are taken from the pool by each player for cards that have the same rank. The amount of chips that are taken increases the same way as in the put deal. Chips that are left in the pool after the cards have been dealt will go to the banker. Then, any chips that are still owed at this point are paid by the banker from his own chips.
In some cases, there is an ante payment. This is when each player puts a chip in the pot before the hand begins.
In this variant, there is an extra payment and an extra claim. Players will pay and take an extra chip for each card that is not only the same rank as the banker but also the same color.
Red and Black
This version also has an extra payment and claim for players that have three or more cards that are the same as the banker’s suit.
Up and Down the River
This version has a different payment and claim system. Players pay and take depending on the rank of the unmatching cards rather than when the card is turned over. For example, payment for an ace is one chip, payment for a 11 chips, for a queen 12 chips and for a king 13 chips. Payments for all other cards are based on their face value.
