Three Card Poker (TCP) is one of the newest casino games to have successfully found some traction on the casino floor, and you can now find this game on gaming tables all over the world. Unsurprisingly given its name, TCP is based on regular poker, but the game has been reworked and reimagined to make it suitable for play against the house.
Typical poker games such as Seven Card Stud, Texas Hold’em, and Razz/Lowball, all of these games are played by a group of players who are all competing against one another. These games are still profitable for the casino, of course – in “cash games”, where each hand is an independent game, the house takes a share of the pot at the end of the hand, called the rake. In tournament poker, every player pays a set fee to the house on top of their contribution to the tournament pot.
