Blind Baseball

Seven cards are all immediately dealt face-down. Each player keeps his seven cards face-down without looking at them. The first player to the left of the dealer flips over his first card. Based on that card, he opens a betting round. That face-up card is now the best hand showing at the table. After the betting round, the next player flips over cards until his cards face-up beat the best hand showing. For example, if the first player turned up a jack, then the next player flips over cards until what he has showing beats a single Jack, that is any card higher than a Jack or a pair.

Those cards showing now become the new best hand showing at the table, and that player opens a betting round. This continues with each player flipping over cards until they can beat the best hand showing at the table, opening a betting round after they have done so.

There are two ways that players are removed from this game. If a player has flipped over all of his cards and cannot beat the best hand at the table with what he has showing, then that player is out of the game. Also, of course, if a player does not at least see each bet that comes his way, he is out of the game. The game ends when all players have flipped over all of their cards. The best hand wins.
