Introduction to Badugi

Badugi is a variation of low draw poker, where each player is dealt four cards to start, and can then draw replacement cards to try and make a better hand.

The object of the game is to make as LOW a four-card hand as possible, with each of the cards being of a different suit, with no pairs.  Since aces are low in this game, the best possible hand is the A-2-3-4 of different suits.  Any hand that has no pairs and one card in each of the four suits is called a BADUGI.  The game is played in triple draw format, meaning that there are three separate times that players can discard and draw new cards, with betting rounds in between each draw.  It is played with a small and big blind, just like Holdem, and can be spread as a limit, pot limit, half-pot limit or no limit game.
