Vying Games

Vying card games are a type of Showdown Game, meaning that players will compare hands to establish a winner. The mechanism that separates vying games from the rest is the ability to place, increase and match bets, along with players’ ability to drop out of the round if they feel as though they will not win. Players may also bluff, meaning they proceed to play as if their hand is good although it is not, in the hopes that other players will drop out.

Examples include:

  • Poker and all its variants
  • Brag
  • Seven Twenty-Seven
  • Ferbli
  • Mus
