    10D has thirteen cards. This is only a preferable embodiment, but not the limitation.
  • Each player has to stake an ante to gain the right to play the game. One of the players is randomly selected as the banker. Cards are dealt sequentially counterclockwise and in turns to the players, with the banker dealing the card first in each round. Each player gets three cards as a hand of cards.
  • Next, the players stake bets in turns; each player can stake a betting multiple based on whether to see his/her hand; the ante made by the first player is the base bet; the following player have to bet at which is greater than or equal to the betting multiple multiplies the base bet and then to stay in the game; if the bet divides by the betting multiple is greater than the base bet, it replaces the base bet and becomes a new base bet. To get desired balance and fun, the bet is preferably limited to 2 through 12 multiples of the base bet. The maximum times of staking a bet without seeing the hand is three. To speed up playing, a rule can be set to allow a player to target an opponent to rival the hands between them based on selected winning card combinations after all players have either staked the bets for three times or have seen their own hands. To increase amusement, the betting multiple of the staking bet can be limited to 2.5.
  • The player who has seen his/her hand and staked the bet can target another player who also has seen his/her hand to rival the hands between them; the lost player is withdrawn from the game. The card combination to decide a winning hand is preferably, in this order, straight flush, three-of-a kind, straight, flush, pair, and zilch.
  • The game set forth above is played repeatedly and betting is staked in turns until the last survival remained who is the winner to claim all the chips. The last survival can take the role of the banker in the next game.
  • Refer to FIG. 5 for the flow chart of the interpretation process of the invention. It includes the procedures as follow: 5A: stake antes to determine the number of players and deal cards; 5B: the first player stakes a bet; 5C: go to the next player, and determine whether the player has seen his/her hand; 5D: determine whether the bet has been staked; 5E: determine whether staking bets is more than three times; 5F: see the hand and stake the bet; 5G: game over; 5H: see the hand and determine whether to stake a bet; 5I: whether to see the hand; 5J/5K: whether to stake a bet; 5L: stake a bet without seeing the hand; 5M: whether there are at least two players who have seen their hands; 5N: whether to target one of the players to rival the hands; 5O: rival the hands, and end the game for the player who is defeated; 5P: determine whether only one player remained; 5Q: game over.
