    How to Play Criss Cross Poker

    1. Criss cross poker is played with a standard 52-card deck with jokers and wild cards removed. Up to six players can play this game.

    2. In some criss cross games, players are dealt two cards, while others have five cards. We play the five-card version here at Isle of Capri Boonville.

    3. Each player is dealt five hole cards that can't be revealed to the other players. Five community cards are placed face down in a cross formation in the middle of the table with three cards up and three cards down, the middle being a shared card.

    3. Players place five bets, or "antes," in total before they see the cards. The antes must be of equal value with an Ante Across, Ante Down, or both bet relating to the card's position on the cross.

    4. After each ante, two cards in the cross are revealed. Dealers unveil the cards starting from the top and working clockwise.

    5. Players try to make a minimum pair of sixes and general winning poker hands, like a Straight Flush, with three community cards and two of their own cards.

    6. Players can wager up to three times their original bet. Players bet three times until all the community cards are revealed.

    7. When all of the cards are uncovered, the remaining players who haven't folded make a final hand. The player with the strongest hand wins the pot!
