In Teen Patti, there are two types of players:
- A blind player
- A seen player
The blind player never gets to see their cards. Therefore, the player has options to play show, blind, and pack when available. When playing blind, the player gets to put the amount in the pot. The bet amount is always equal to the stake amount.
Furthermore, if the first player is a blind player, they must bet an amount equal to the boot amount or twice the amount. On the other hand, the stake amount is the bet placed by a blind player. However, in case there are other blind players, they can place a bet equal to the stake amount or even twice the amount.
The blind player has an option to ask for a show. However, this is only available when a single opponent is remaining in the game. Asking for a show as a blind player is known as a blind show. After asking for a show, both player’s cards become visible. The player with the winning hand at the end of the round ends up getting the pot.
On the other hand, a seen player has the option to play pack, Chaal, or other options. The additional options that a seen player might have, include a side show or a show. More so, upon seeing the cards, the player must play Chaal to remain in the game unless they have another available option.
When playing Chaal, the player has to put the available bet amount in the pot. However, as a seen player, you get to have a bet amount of twice or quadruple the current stake amount. More so, if the previous player is a blind player, the next player’s stake amount is the amount bet by the blind player. But if the previous player was a seen player, the stake amount is half the amount bet by the player.
For a side show, the player gets to compare their cards with the previous player. However, this is only available if the previous player was also a seen player. More so, there ought to be more players who are still in the game. During a side show, you get to wager an amount that’s equal to double the current stake.
When you request a side show, the previous player can accept or deny the request.
