Well, i used to play this with another old man when i was in NYC. I din know then that it was called Russian Poker. Had me addicted when i was in Kota Kinabalu on my mountain quest. Thanx to mr lim and sin for the revival of Russian poker in me :) . Has 3 stages. First stage is 3 cards, then 2nd stage is 5 cards and the last stage is also 5 cards. The calculation is a bit complicated. But fun nevertheless!
