    Jason Mercier Wins ?2K Open-Face Chinese Poker Event at EPT Grand Final

    Jason Mercier Wins ?2K Open-Face Chinese Poker Event at EPT Grand Final

    Team PokerStars Pro Jason Mercier broke his 15-month cold streak on Monday by winning the ?2,150 Open-Face Chinese Poker event at the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo? Casino EPT Grand Final.

    Event #2 of EPT Monaco attracted 52 players and 17 re-entries to create a prize pool of ?138,000. The event was running alongside the EPT Grand Final Main Event, forcing several Open-Face Chinese connoisseurs like Barry Greenstein to opt out, but the event was still littered with top pros like Shaun Deeb, Joseph Cheong, David Benyamine, Luke Schwartz and Scott Seiver.

    Mercier managed to claim his first win in over a year by besting a tough final table that included fellow Team PokerStars Pros Alex Kravchencko and Victor Ramdin.

    Rules of Card Games: Chinese Poker

    As in standard Chinese Poker, each player will construct three hands: a 5-card back hand, a 5-card middle hand and a 3-card front hand. However, initially, just 5 cards are dealt face down to each player, and the remainder of the deck is stacked face down. The players decide how to allocate these cards to their three hands, and when all are ready, all simultaneously expose their cards.

    Play now continues clockwise, starting with the player to the dealer's left. Each player in turn draws the top card of the stock, exposes it, and adds it to one of his or her three hands. Once played, cards cannot be moved from one hand to another, and when a hand has its full complement of cards (5 in the back or middle, 3 in the front), no more can be added. When everyone has 13 cards, the hands are compared and scored as in the standard game.

    In order to qualify to win, a player's back hand must be better than their middle hand, which must be better than their front hand. If these conditions are not met, the player's hands are 'foul', and all three hands lose to any other player whose hands are not also foul. (In standard Chinese Poker, foul hands never occur unless the player makes a mistake. In Open Face Chinese Poker, a player may easily get into a situation where a foul is unavoidable, if the last few cards are not what the player hoped for.)

    Any of the scoring variants described above could also be applied to the open face game.
