Guide Sab Sam

1. Introduction:
In Chinese Poker or other name: Sab Sam, each player receives 13 cards from a standard 52-card deck (from A to K). The number of people playing Chinese Poker is from 2 to 4 people. Each player then has to divide their cards into three poker hands (2 hands of five cards and 1 hand of three cards): the Front Hand (3 cards), the Middle Hand (5 cards), the Back Hand (5 cards), so that the 13 cards hand which is arranged in increasing order: first hand<middle hand <last hand. 
Especially in Chinese Poker only consider the rank, not the suit of the cards.

2. How to Play Chinese Poker
a. How to arrange cards:
- Players will be arranged 13 cards into three sets of hands in ascending order: first hand < middle hand < last hand. If not arranged in this order will be called "Scooped" (losing all three hands).
- First Hand includes 3 cards. There are 3 types and in descending order as follows:
• Triple: 3 cards of the same rank 
• Pair: 2 of 3 cards of the same rank 
• Trash: all the cards are different

The Middle Hand and the Last Hand set each have 5 cards.
• Straight Flush: 5 cards of the same suit forming a consecutive sequence

• Four of a kind: 4 cards of the rank and an extra card.

• Full House: 3 cards of the same rank, and 2 remaining cards also of same different rank.

• Flush: 5 cards of the same suit.

• Straight: 5 cards forming a consecutive sequence

• Three of a Kind: 3 cards of the same rank and 2 extra cards

• Two Pairs: 2 pairs of cards with the same rank and 1 extra card

• Pair: a pairs of cards with the same rank and 3 extra cards

• Trash: all cards have different rank, and not all have the same suit.

b. Chinese Poker Rules
How to compare 3 Hands:
- The system will display all the cards of the members on the table and calculate the amount of money, the amount of win and lose of each opponent. 
1 Hand = the amount of the bet in the game.
- The cards of the players will be compared with each other according to the rules of the game.
- When comparing these cards, we will compare the two First-Hand together, the two Middle-Hand together, and the two Back-Hand together. If a player beats another player in all of the Three Hands or a scoop, he or she gets a three-point bonus.
- Winners: there are more total wins than the competitors in the game when compared.
- Losers: there are more total losses than the competitors in the game when compared.
c. Some special cases (Chinese Poker)
*13 unique cards (i.e. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q, K, A) known as a Dragon
- All 13 cards of same suit, win 13*bets
- All black (or all red) cards, win 13*bets
- 12 black cards and 1 red (or 12 red cards and 1 black), win 3*bets
- 6 Pairs, win 3*bets from each other player.
- 3 Flushes (i.e. the middle and bottom are flushes, and the top is trash resembling a flush), win 3*bets
- 3 Straights (i.e. the middle and bottom are straights, and the top is trash resembling a straight), win 3*bets
If a player makes Three Flushes or Three Straights - they automatically win the hand, regardless of the other players' hands. As shown in the photo, the Middle player has made all Three Hands Flush and is an automatic winner.
- For every 1 A (Aces), each player plays 1 Hand. If there are a Four of a kind of A, it is not counted as 4 Hand because it is used in Special Cases Law. Scores: A (Aces) will be added to the end of the match after calculating all steps above. 
For example: A wins B with 3 Hands, then by law x2 A wins B with 6 Hands. But B has 2 A (Aces) so -2. Results: A wins B with 4 Hands.
- Getting scooped (losing all three hands): is the case a player loses 3 Hands compared to others.

Before the cards are dealt, the player can chose a betting amount on the table. There is a limit on how much you can bet (500, 1.000, 3.000, 5.000)
