Teen Patti is an Indian card game also known as Indian Flush. Everyone places this minimum stake in the pot – a collection of money in the centre of the table, which will be won by one of the players. The dealer deals out the cards one at a time until everyone has three cards. The players then bet on who has the best three card hand. Each has the option to look at their three-card hand before betting (playing seen) or to leave their cards face down on the table (playing blind). The betting starts with the player to the left of the dealer and continues with players taking turns in clockwise order around the table, for as many circuits as are needed. Each player in turn can either put an additional bet into the pot to stay in, or pay nothing further and fold. When folding, you permanently drop out of the betting and sacrifice any money you have already put into the pot during that deal. The betting continues in this way until one of the following things happen:
- All except one player have folded. In that case the last surviving player wins all the money in the pot, irrespective of the cards held.
- All except two players have folded and one of these players at their turn pays for a show. In that case the cards of both players are exposed and compared.
