2Man PokerSort™ follows the same hand strength rules as a standard five card poker game, with the Royal Flush being strongest and the High-Card hand being weakest.
Please note that a Royal Flush must be ace through ten, same suit and, while a straight flush may be any same-suit consecutive cards, players may not connect the 8 to the ace. For example, a same-suit king, ace, 8, 9, 10 is scored as a flush, not a straight flush. A same-suit 8, 9, 10, J, Q is scored as a straight flush.
Scoring simply multiplies the team’s speed by the value of the penned “hand” for a final score. Please visit our "Scoring" tab to read the logic behind Poker Rodeo’s™ Scoring System (patents pending).
To qualify, the team must pen five cows, including the designated hole card (first), clean in the allotted time. Exactly five cows must be penned. The “hole card” that is announced when time begins must be the first cow across the foul line to qualify. Time stops and the score is calculated once a total of exactly five cows, including the hole-card cow, are penned clean. A sixth dirty cow behind the foul line renders a No-Time for the team.
