In this Teen Patti variation, the prize pot is divided between the player with the highest hand and the one with the lowest hand.
In High-Low Split, there are two variations called “declaration” and “cards speak”.
In “declaration” you must declare (either verbally or by using chips) if you want to go against the high hand or low hand. When there is a show the pot is split in half. All high hands compare their cards and the one with the highest hands wins that half pot. Also, all low hands compare their hands and the lowest hand wins that half pot.
In “cards speak”, there’s no need for you to declare. All players compare their cards in the show and the pot is split between the highest hand and the lowest hand.
The players must first play three rounds of betting with no player allowed to fold. After these rounds, players are allowed to fold.
All players must agree on a limit of rounds before a show. It is usually between 6 to 10 rounds of this Teen Patti variation. After the players have an agreement on the number of rounds, there is a compulsory showdown, which means you have to do it anyway. Compared to classic Teen Patti where there can only be two players in a show, in this variation there can be several players in the show.
Also, no sideshows are allowed in High-Low Split.
