Watch How Guts Pot Increase Rapidly

Guts is a card game wherein the pot grows rapidly. This game has something to do about players evaluating his opponent's particular set of cards. This put Guts to the group of "card games" that is somewhat related to poker. "Guts" are played by first dealing each player with two to three cards, their hand ranking adapts the traditional poker hand ranks. Guts apply a very straight-forward betting process made during a deal. A player is obliged to make a final decision on whether to continue with the game or to fold; and declaring his deed concurrent with the other active players. A showdown always accompanies every card deal, where the beaten participants must equal or increase the central pot. A round comes to conclusion when one only one player remains standing and rewarded the pot.

One good characteristic of guts is its ability to increase the amount in the central pot into such huge proportion. This pot can grow more than double its value in each round, pots having 50 and even 100 times the initial ante are likely to happen.

There are numerous variations. Occasionally only the player holding the most horrible combination (which stayed in) must make the additional pot, but each player must increase the pot twice rather than simply matching it. In a special cruel variation, nobody gets the pot except no one else stays in the round.

This set up can reduced quickly, when a player adds a large quantity to the central pot, and then decides to remain until he gets even. So the round continues for an indefinite period, with one active player continually adding together bigger and bigger cash amounts to its pot. The central pot can increase so huge that no active player has sufficient cash to equal it, thus leading to disputes between players regarding how the game must end.

This guts variant is not highly recommended when competing among friends. Habitually this type of variation is dumped once the first large pot leads to certain conflict.

One fine solution to the rapid growing pots is to have a cap ceiling which may range from a 50x up to100x the bet or ante. To be exact, if 5 players make a 1 dollar ante, the central pot begun at 5 dollars. If three players are doubling the pot, the pot now stands at 40 dollars.

Suppose, a rule stating that "cap the pot at $50" is enforced. In a case wherein another pot doubling occurred, every loser would automatically pays $40, but the central pot is now at $50 and the additional 30 dollars would be reserve as antes once a hand occurred with a lone winner but no loser.
