Bored with Stripped-Down Poker, Felix and Oscar now make
the game more interesting by adding a third card type: Jack. Four Jacks are
added to the deck of four Kings and four Queens. All rules remain the same as
before, except for what happens when Felix Bets and Oscar Calls. When Felix
Bets and Oscar Calls, Felix wins the pot if he has a King, they “tie” and each
gets his money back if Felix is holding a Queen, and Oscar wins the pot if the
card is a Jack.
