Beginning with the primary participant to the left of the button, gamers should flip their playing cards face up and begin setting them into what is named a Chinese language Poker 3-5-5 format. These are three separate poker fingers:
- A Three card hand on the prime
- A 5 card hand within the center
- A 5 card hand on the backside
Every hand should be progressively stronger beginning with the three card hand on the prime. The center hand should outrank the highest hand and the underside (again) hand should outrank the center.
