Triple Draw Lowball Poker

2-7 Triple Draw Lowball might be a fairly unknown game in the world of online poker, but it’s been gaining popularity since Casinoslots South Africa added it to their game line-up. Many new players are unfamiliar with some of the game’s more unique characteristics, and now is the perfect time to master those characteristics and set your skills against the typically weak players you will find at the tables. Many players will sit down at a Triple Draw poker table just to see what it is. Most lose a few hands and move back to games they are comfortable with but some fall in love with the game and continue to play it. It takes a long time to develop a solid 27 Triple Draw strategy though so thats why the games are so soft. I suppose most of the people reading this fall under the category I just mentioned. Since you are taking the initiative to learn strategies I would guess you won’t be in that category much longer.

27 Triple Draw Hand Selection And Position


If you’re dealt Q-7-5-4-2 unsuited, you have a very strong 27 Triple Draw starting hand from just about any position. There risk of a straight is pretty low, you’re drawing to the nuts (with a 3) and there are several other outs that you can win with (a 6 or an 8). You’re going to play it, obviously, but you have to watch it carefully as the rounds progress. If you’re still drawing by the last round and facing heavy betting, that strong one-card draw you started with has fewer and fewer chances of hitting the winning card combination. In other words, with every drawing round your hand is getting weaker and weaker, your opponents will know you have to hit one magic card to win and they’ll make you pay to catch it.

There are four premium hands in 2-7 Triple Draw; 7-5-4-3-2 (the nuts); 7-6-4-3-2; 7-6-5-3-2 and 7-6-5-4-2. To play from the first or second positions you need to be standing pat with one of these hands or drawing only one card to them. Middle to late positions can speculate with weaker hands if you can get into the pot cheaply enough and the last or next to last positions are the perfect spots to bluff from. Even if your opponents know you’re position bluffing, they still might not be willing to pay to out-draw you if they were speculating with mediocre hands in the first place.
