In-between, or as it is better known Acey Deucey, is a card game involving betting. The game also is called Maverick, (Between the) Sheets, Yablon, and Red Dog, and is closely related to High Card Pool. Players before they play In-Between, should set up a maximum bet and a minimum bet.


Each player’s ante (usually two chips) is added to the pot. During the game each player takes turns, the game continues until the entire pot is empty.

During a turn, the dealer deals two cards, face-up. The player bets if they believe the third card dealt will be in between (in rank) their two cards. A bet can be between zero or the total value of the pot.

  • If the third card is in-between, that player wins their bet in chips from the pot.
  • If the third card is not in-between the two, that player loses, and pays to the pot their bet.
  • If the third card is the same rank as one of the two, they pay to the pot double their bet.

The best hand is an Ace and a two, hence the name “Acey Deucey,” because you can only lose your bet if the third card is an Ace or a two.

If you are dealt two aces, split them if the first ace was called high, and the dealer will deal each ace a second card. You can only choose one hand to bet on, or choose to pass entirely.


To maximize your bets, bet when there are at least 8 cards between you two. For example, 2 & J…3 & Q….4 & K…5 & A.

If your cards are closer together, pass or bet zero.


  • You are only allowed to bet half the value of the pot until each player has had their turn.
  • If the first card dealt is an Ace, players may call high or low. However, the second ace is always high.
  • If you are dealt two cards of equal rank you have two options:
    • ask to be dealt two new cards
    • bet the third card will higher or lower
  • You may allow players to be the third card will be ‘outside’ the two card as opposed to just ‘inside’
  • Minimum betting, regardless of the hand dealt
  • Blind Betting, place your bet to the pot before being dealt cards.


If playing In-Between for a winner, players should decided on a number of rounds to play to. Once all the rounds have been finished, the player with the most chips wins!
