(For the game In-Between, the Ace and 2 are the best combination for up cards)
Card Game Rules
In-Between, Acey-Deucey, or Yablon is a casino type game played with 2 or more players. In-Between uses a standard 52 playing card deck with Aces high and 2s low. The objective of In-Between is to wager your bets on a card’s rank being in-between two previously drawn cards.
To start, all players place a minimum bet into the pot.
Before gameplay can begin, a dealer must be selected. To do so, players must choose a random card from a shuffled deck. The player with the lowest card becomes the dealer. Ties are broken with repeated drawings. The dealer shuffles the deck and then places two cards face up and a few inches apart into the center of the gameplay area.
How to Play
Beginning with the player left of the dealer and proceeding clockwise, players place an additional bet of any amount on the table when it is their turn. The dealer then places a third card in-between the previously drawn cards and turns it face up. If the third card’s rank is in-between the other cards, the betting player wins 2:1 from the pot. If the third card is not in-between the other cards or is of the same rank as them, the bet made is added to the pot and play passes to the next player.
This means that the Ace and 2 are the best combination for betting. This also means that if the two up cards are in consecutive order, the betting player automatically loses.
If the two up cards are of the same rank, the betting player automatically wins two chips from the pot.
If the pot runs out of chips, all players place another minimum amount in it.

In Red Dog, players receive five cards from the dealer. Players make their bets, then the dealer draws an additional card and places it in the middle of the gameplay area. If players have a card that is of the same suit and of a higher rank than the card drawn, they receive 2:1 odds.
