In Double Hold’em, players are dealt three cards instead of two. After the flop is dealt, each player remaining in the hand must designate one of their three cards as the “point” card. This card is then placed above the other two cards to form a triangle. The point card can be used in conjunction with each of the other two cards to form two different hold’em hands. In the event of a showdown, you play whichever of your two possible hands gives you the best five card poker hand. As in hold’em, both, one, or none of your hole cards can be played at showdown.
