Tangkas, known as also as Bola Tangkas, Mickey Mouse, or 7-Card Stud Poker game is basically a variant of Stud Poker game. This is the most widely Poker game variant played at home. Thus, most people in Asia have been very familiar with this particular game.
The game begins with each player being dealt two cards face down and one card face up. The player with the lowest-ranking upcard pays the bring-in, and betting proceeds after that in normal clockwise order. The bring-in is considered an open, so the next player in turn may not check. If 2 players have equally ranked low cards, suit may be used to break the tie and assign the bring-in. If there is no bring-in, then the first betting round begins with the player showing the highest-ranking upcard, who may check. In this case, suit is not used to break ties. If two players have the same high upcard, the one first in clockwise rotation from the dealer acts first.
