Bai Buu (KingMaker)

[Basic Rules]

DESCRIPTION

Bài Bủu (or “4 Cards Poker”) is a famous Vietnamese table game played with a standard 52-card deck. Because the rules are quite similar to the Chinese Poker game, it isalso known as 4 Cards Poker.
There are 2 sides in this game: Banker and Players. Each side is given 4 cards and players will compare their card values to the banker to determine wins and losses.
 

PLAYING HANDS RULE

Participants must re-arrange their 4 cards into rows of 2 each called “High” and “Low” hands. The value of “High hand” MUST be higher than “Low hand”. Failing which, the player will get “Fouled/ Mis-set hand”, resulting in a lost by default.
 

HAND RANKING

Naturals > Bửu (Pair) > Big Công (2 Faces) > Small Công (A+9) > Score.

 

SCORE

Naturals (STRONGEST)
If players have one of these types, it results in an auto-win, regardless of banker’s hand.

RESOLVING TIES

When the final result of both Banker and Player’s hand is a TIE, the highest card rank will win:
A > K > Q > J > 10 > 9 > 8 > 7 > 6 > 5 > 4 > 3 > 2

If the highest card rank of both Banker and Player’s hands are equal, the highest card rank will win:
