After all the players have had a turn for each box they are playing, the dealer's hand is exposed. The dealer qualifies with a hand of Ace-King or better.

For any boxes that have folded, the dealer has already collected the ante and any payment to exchange cards or buy a card, and there are no further payments for folded boxes.

For boxes where the player has placed a bet, the result depends on whether the dealer qualified, and if so, whether the player's hand is better or worse than the dealer's. The player's best five-card poker hand is compared with the dealer's hand using normal five-card poker hand rankings. If the player's best hand beats the dealer's hand the player will also be paid for any second qualifying hand, even if the scond hand does not beat the dealer's.

If the player's hand ties with the dealer's hand , the ante and the bet are returned, and if the player bought a card or exchanged cards the payment for the 6th card or exchange is lost. So the player comes out even if he bet on his original hand and loses the equivalent of one ante if he bought a card or exchanged. If the dealer's hand beats the player's hand , the ante and the bet are lost, together with any payment to buy a card or exchange cards. For any box that has been insured, the insurance is paid out at 1: The owner of any box which has not been insured may chhose to pay an amount equal to the ante for that box to make the dealer exchange one card, in the hope that the dealer may then qualify.

Before carrying out the exchange if paid for , the dealer first pays out for all the boxes that did not pay for the dealer to exchange. For these boxes the dealer returns the bet and pays out 1: Any amount paid to buy a 6th card or pay to exchange cards is lost. Therefore a player who bet on his original hand will have a profit of one ante, and a player who bought a 6th card will come out even because the payout for the ante cancels the payment for the 6th card.

If one or more boxes paid for dealer to exchange a card, the dealer now discards the highest card from his hand and draws a new card from the deck to replace it. If this new card does not change the dealer's hand the new card is the same rank as the old card and does not give dealer a flush , the exchange is repeated without further payment until the dealer's hand is changed: If the dealer still does not qualify after the card exchange, the dealer pays out the remaining boxes in the same way as those that did not pay for an exchange.

If the dealer qualifies as a result of the exchange, the payments to the boxes that paid for the exchange are as in the dealer qualifies section above. In either case, the payments to make dealer exchange - one ante for each box - are kept by the dealer. Some casinos have a rule that if a player pays to exchange just one card of his hand, after discarding and receiving a new card he has three options: To exchange again the player must pay one more ante, after which there are the same three options.

The player may exchange as many single cards as he wishes paying one ante for each exchange. If all six boxes at a table are played, there is the possibility that the cards may run out, in which case the dealer will shuffle the discarded cards to form a new deck from which more replacement cards can be dealt.

To avoid this situation, the table may agree on a limit on the number of cards that can be exchanged, for example not more than two cards per box. Some casinos allow a "bonus bet" instead of or in addition to the initial ante. This bet, placed on a box before the cards are dealt, is a wager on the original five-card hand dealt to this box.

The payout table varies from casino to casino. Here are two versions, one paying out for three-of-a-kind or better and one paying out for straight or better. The former Wikipedia page on Russian Poker archive copy had another description of this game.
