58 Pa. Code § 683a.11. Procedures for completion of each round of play.

§ 683a.11. Procedures for completion of each round of play.

 (a)  After the dealing procedures required under §  683a.8, §  683a.9 or §  683a.10 (relating to procedures for dealing the cards from a manual dealing shoe; procedures for dealing the cards from the hand; and procedures for dealing the cards from an automated dealing shoe) have been completed, each player shall examine his cards subject to the following limitations:

   (1)  Each player who wagers at Cajun Stud shall be responsible for his own hand and no person other than the dealer and the player to whom the cards were dealt may touch the cards of that player.

   (2)  Each player shall keep his two cards in full view of the dealer at all times.

 (b)  After each player has examined his cards, the dealer shall, beginning with the player farthest to the dealer’s left and moving clockwise around the table, ask each player who placed an Ante Wager if he wishes to make a Raise Wager in an amount equal to one, two or three times the player’s Ante Wager or forfeit the Ante Wager and end his participation in the round of play. If a player has placed an Ante Wager and an optional Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wager but does not make a Raise Wager, the player shall forfeit the Ante Wager but does not forfeit the Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wagers. After each player who has placed an Ante Wager has either placed a Raise Wager on the designated area of the layout or forfeited his Ante Wager, the dealer shall collect all forfeited wagers and associated cards, except for the cards of those players who placed an optional Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wager, and place the cards in the discard rack.

 (c)  Once all players have either placed a Raise Wager or folded, the dealer shall turn over and reveal the first community card.

 (d)  Each player shall then make a second Raise Wager, in an amount equal to one, two or three times the player’s Ante Wager or forfeit the Ante Wager and the first Raise Wager and end his participation in the round of play. If a player has placed an optional Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wager but does not make a Raise Wager, the player shall forfeit the Ante Wager and the first Raise Wager but does not forfeit the Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wagers. After each player who has placed an Ante Wager has either placed a second Raise Wager on the designated area of the layout or forfeited, the dealer shall collect all forfeited wagers and associated cards, except for the cards of those players who placed an optional Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wager, and place the cards in the discard rack.

 (e)  Once all remaining players have either placed a second Raise Wager or folded, the dealer shall turn over and reveal the second community card.

 (f)  Each player shall then make a third Raise Wager, in an amount equal to one, two or three times the player’s Ante Wager or forfeit the Ante Wager and the first and second Raise Wagers and end his participation in the round of play. If a player has placed an optional Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wager but does not make a Raise Wager, the player shall forfeit the Ante Wager and the first and second Raise Wagers but does not forfeit the Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wagers. After each player who has placed an Ante Wager has either placed a third Raise Wager on the designated area of the layout or forfeited, the dealer shall collect all forfeited wagers and associated cards, except for the cards of those players who placed an optional Pocket Bonus, Board Bonus, Lo Ball or All-Six Bonus Wager, and place the cards in the discard rack.

 (g)  Once all remaining players have either placed a third Raise Wager or folded, the dealer shall turn over and reveal the third community card.

 (h)  Beginning with the player farthest to the dealer’s right and continuing around the table in a counterclockwise direction, the dealer shall turn over and reveal the player’s cards. The dealer shall then evaluate and announce the best possible five-card Poker hand that can be formed using the player’s two cards and the three community cards. The wagers of each remaining player shall be resolved one player at a time regardless of outcome. All Ante and Raise wagers shall be settled as follows:

   (1)  If a player’s highest ranking five card hand is a pair of sixes or higher, as provided in §  683a.6(b) (relating to Cajun Stud hand rankings), the dealer shall pay the winning Ante and Raise Wagers in accordance with §  683a.12(a) (relating to payout odds; payout limitation).

   (2)  If a player’s highest ranking five card hand is lower than a pair of sixes, as provided in §  683a.6(b), the dealer shall collect the player’s losing Ante and Raise Wagers.

 (i)  After settling the player’s Ante and Raise Wagers, the dealer shall settle any optional wagers as follows:

   (1)  For the Pocket Bonus Wager, if the two cards dealt to the player:

     (i)   Are not a pair or better, as provided in §  683a.6(c), the dealer shall collect the losing Pocket Bonus Wager.

     (ii)   Are a pair or better, as provided in §  683a.6(c), the dealer shall pay the winning Pocket Bonus Wager in accordance with §  683a.12(b).

   (2)  For the Board Bonus Wager, if the three community cards:

     (i)   Do not contain a pair or better, as provided in §  683a.6(d), the dealer shall collect the losing Board Bonus Wager.

   (4)  For the All-Six Bonus Wager, the dealer shall expose the four All-Six Bonus cards and combine them with the player’s two cards to form the highest ranking six-card hand as provided in §  683a.6(e). If the hand:

     (i)   Does not contain a three-of-a-kind or better, as provided in §  683a.6(e), the dealer shall collect the losing All-Six Bonus Wager.
