Duplicate Cards in Poker


Duplicate cards on the board

Duplicate cards on the board are not a common occurrence in poker. However, duplicates have been used for centuries by bridge players. In this type of game, players return duplicated cards to the deck after each hand. The duplicates are passed from table to table, but they generally do not result in winning hands.

This type of poker is played with four players. It can be played as a Swiss tournament or round-robin team competition. Due to the duplication of cards, this type of poker removes the element of luck from the game. Players can use the information they get from the duplicated cards to calculate their scores.
