The game of Three Cards – Flash (Part 2)

Ranking of hands:

The win in a round depends on the precedence of the cards in hand. There are eight basic ranks depending on the suits and the combinations. In this game, any hand of a higher sort, thrashes any hand of a lower category. This precedence is based on the probability of getting it. If the probability is high, then the rank is low and vice versa.


Trio or often known as the trail, is three cards of the same rank in a hand. Any three cards with the same precedence but different suits are the best. If both two players have trails, then the one with highest trail will win a round. In the trail, three aces (as seen in the movies too) are the best trio and three two’s are the lowest.

2-3-5 of the same suit

The probability to get the cards 2-3-5 of the same suit is very rare, however, not as rare as the trail. Same suit is one of the four suits; clubs, diamonds, spades and hearts. If someone gets 2-3-5 of the same suit, he/she is likely to win, unless the other player has a trail. For example, the participant gets the cards 2-3-5 of spades or clubs.

Normal 2-3-5

It is the same thing as a 2-3-5 described above. However, it can be with different suits. For example the player gets 2 of clubs, 3 of spades and 5 of diamonds.

Straight Flush

Straight flush is when the participant gets three consecutive cards of the same suit. In this case, ace of any suit can be used with the king or two. In hierarchical order, A-2-3 are the highest, with A-K-Q being the second and so on down to 4-3-2. The hand with consecutive cards is also known as the sequence.

Normal Flush

It is exactly the same as the straight flush. However, it can be with different suits.


If the participant gets any three cards of the same suit, he/she hits Colour. When comparing two colours, the highest card is compared with the player having colour, too. If the highest card is equal, then compare the second card and if both cards are equal, then it comes to the last card to be compared. Thus the highest colour is A-K-J and the lowest is 5-4-2.


A pair is when two cards of the same rank are in hand. If the players get two such hands, compare the pair first and then the odd cards, if these are equal. The highest pair hand is therefore A-A-K and the lowest is 2-2-3. If all three cards are with the same rank then the participant with spades card will win, otherwise the pot will be shared equally. These minor rules are decided before the start of the game and vary according to the country.

High card

This is simply the comparison between three cards in the hands of player one and player two. If none of the above stated combination occurs then the game comes down to the highest card in a hand, with ace being the highest and 2 being the lowest.


Ceremony is a part of the game flash, this happens when the distributor divides three cards to all the players and no card is left in that deal. It is rare to occur, however, not impossible.

Two Cards

Each player gets two cards and they can suppose the third card to make any possible combination.

Four Cards

Each player gets four cards and they can discard one card and play with three, making any possible combination.


As the name suggests, the winner of the misery is the participant with the worst cards in hand. The lowest misery is 2-4-5 of different suits. The lowest cards, any one can get are, 2-3-4. However, 2-3-4 is a sequence and is not considered as misery.
