As you may know from reading previous pages, Red-Dog Poker goes by many other names, including yablon, in-between, ace-deuce and between the sheets. There isn't a huge history to the game. It was apparently popular in the old west, but was found too easy to cheat and disappeared. Resurfacing many years later it is no longer the game it was, and the modern form like every other casino game today has a healthy house edge.

Red dog poker has been particularly hard to find in recent years, luckily there are a few online casinos around which offer the game. It can be a relaxing easy way to pass the time, and is often used as a way to finish off the night at home poker games (as it gives a chance to spread the money around relatively quickly without relying on skill very much).

This game is of particular interest as it's house edge varies widely depending on the spread of cards dealt to you. Basically the dealer deals two cards face up to each player who has anteed in, and then the player can choose to bet (there is only one bet, the 'raise' which doubles your ante) that the next card dealt to them will fall in between the first two. So if you are dealt a 5 and an 8 you have a spread of 2 and the house edge is 0.225. If you have a larger spread, say the largest, of 11, then the house edge no only dips below zero, it dips all the way down to -0.7, which translates to a 70% chance of winning for the player. These house edge numbers are for a six-deck game.
