The first card shall be dealt face down in front of the player's bet, one to each player, and then one to the dealer, also face down.

(8) How to bet and play one-on-one with the dealer:

Players must bet five dollars on (H) circle before the dealer deals the cards. Players may bet three dollars to twenty-five dollars on the blackjack circle and one dollar to ten dollars on the two cards plus.

The dealer pulls the five-dollar ante bets into the pot circle and proceeds to deal the cards.

After a player receives the two cards, the player must either bet or fold the hand. If a player folds, the five dollar ante in the pot circle goes into the tray and blackjack commences. If a player bets, the dealer will pull that bet into the pot circle. The dealer then burns one card face down, above and to the left of the tray, and then deals the three-card flop face up. At this point the player must either bet or fold. If player folds, all bets in the pot circle are pulled into the tray and blackjack commences. If a player bets, the dealer will pull that bet into the pot circle. The dealer than burns one card face down, above and to the left of the tray placing it on top of the first burned card, and deals the turn card face up. Again, the player must either bet or fold. If a player folds, all bets in the pot circle are put into the tray and blackjack commences. If a player bets, the dealer shall pull that bet into the pot circle. The dealer then burns one card face down above and to the left of the tray placing it on top of the two burned cards and deals the river card face up. Again, the player must either bet or fold. If the player folds, all bets in the pot circle are put into the tray and blackjack commences. If the player bets, the dealer will pull that bet into the pot circle. This concludes the betting rounds.

If a player folds at any point in the betting rounds, the dealer must burn one card placing it over the discard rack before blackjack commences.

The dealer next takes the top burned card off the pile above and to the left of the tray and places it in the discard rack. The remaining two burned cards are turned over to be used as the dealer's hold 'em hand.

The dealer must have a pair or better to qualify to play. If the dealer does not qualify, the dealer will take the house rake, if applicable, from the pot circle and give the remaining chips to the player. If the dealer qualifies but the player has a better hand, the chips in the pot circle are paid 1:1 after any house rake is taken and all remaining chips are given to the player. If the dealer qualifies and has a better hand, the chips in the pot circle are put into the tray after any applicable house rake is taken out. The five community hold 'em cards and the dealer's two hold 'em cards are then burned to the discard rack with the dealer's cards on top and blackjack commences.

No split pots are allowed in one player hold 'em. If a split pot occurs it is considered a push and the chips in the pot circle are given back to the player after any applicable rake is taken.

All betting rounds are from two dollars to ten dollars on hold 'em.

The dealer commences by pulling the one dollar ante (H) bets to the pot circle. The dealer than deals cards from the left to the right. The button will be placed by the first player who will start the betting round by checking or betting from two dollars to the ten-dollar maximum bet. If a bet has been made, the remaining players must call, raise the bet, or fold.

If a player bets the maximum, the bet cannot be raised any further by later players. The remaining players must either call the bet or fold. This applies to all betting rounds.

The dealer next burns one card by placing it face down in the discard rack and then turns over the three-card flop. The dealer next pulls the hold 'em bets into the pot circle. The first player again starts a betting round by checking or betting. If no bet is made, the next player has the option to check or bet. If a bet has been made, the remaining players must call, raise the bet, or fold. When betting is finished, the dealer burns one card face down into the discard rack and then deals the turn card face up. The dealer then pulls the hold 'em bets into the pot circle. The first player again starts a betting round by checking or betting. If no bet is made, the next player has the option to check or bet. If a bet has been made, the remaining players must call, raise the bet, or fold. When betting is finished, the dealer again burns one card face down into the discard rack and then deals the river card face up. The dealer next pulls the hold 'em bets into the pot circle. The first player again starts a betting round by checking or betting. If no bet has been made, the next player has the option to check or bet. If a bet is made, the remaining players must call, raise the bet, or fold.

When the betting round is finished, the dealer will pull the final hold 'em bets to the pot circle. The dealer next takes the house rake from the pot and drops it in the box before the pot is distributed to the winner.

If all but one player folds at any point in the betting rounds, the dealer must burn one card placing it in the discard rack before blackjack commences.

The dealer will ask the players still participating in the hold 'em game to show both of their cards, starting with the player who has the dealer button. The player with the highest poker hand will be given all of the chips in the pot circle. The dealer then mucks the cards on the board by placing the cards in the discard rack. At this point, blackjack commences.

(10) Blackjack. If the dealer has not yet burned one card before commencing blackjack, the dealer must do so prior to commencing the blackjack game. All players shall hold their cards facing down to the table inside the table circle. Players are not allowed to show their two cards to any other players at the table.

The dealer will begin the blackjack hand by turning the dealer's top card face up and placing it on top of the bottom card. All players must pick up and hold their cards to play their hand. To hit the player must scratch the table with the player's cards. To stand the player must tuck the player's cards face down underneath the blackjack bet. To split or double down a player must turn the player's cards face up in front of the blackjack bet. Double down is only on a hard 10 or 11. Blackjacks shall be paid immediately. Double down cards must be placed face down underneath the double cards. Splitting is allowed on matching pairs only. When a player splits aces, they may only receive one card each. When a player has a blackjack, the player must turn the player's cards face up immediately. The dealer will then burn the cards by placing the cards into the discard rack. Busted hands must also be turned face up immediately. The dealer must follow the same rules for blackjack as set forth in ARSD chapter 20:18:15. When the dealer turns over the player's cards to pay or take the blackjack bet, the dealer will then also pay or take for the 2 Card Plus bets. The dealer will then pick up all of the players' hands and place the cards in the discard rack, starting from third position to first position. When the blackjack is completed, the dealer will first move the button to the next player going from the dealer's left and continuing to the right. If the next player has just left the table and a new player sits down immediately in that position, the button will pass over the new player and be given to the next player. The dealer will remove the cards from the discard rack and place the cards on the table in front of the dealer and place the remaining cards in the dealer's hand on top. The dealer will then shuffle the cards.

If for any reason the dealer runs out of cards, the dealer must reshuffle the remaining cards in the discard rack.

An outgoing dealer shall tell the incoming dealer which player is to receive the button for the next hand. An outgoing dealer must finish a hand in progress before the dealer can be relieved from the table.
