Badugi s a variant of draw poker and Is originated in Asia, the game can be played as pot-limit or no-limit, it is most commonly spread as a limit game.
Badugi consists of 4 betting rounds total, beginning with only FOUR cards dealt face down to each placer, You can draw three times after your dealt the initial four.
Your goal is to get the lowest four cards you can with the Ace being a 1, you also have to get all four of your suits to be different without pairing, straights and aces don’t hurt you in this game but pairs and cards of the same suit do. You want to have no pairs and no 2 cards with the same suite in your hand if possible.
Any hand with no pair and 4 different suits is called a “Four Card Badugi” or just a Badugi. So a hand with 2,2,3,4 even with all 4 different suits would be called a “Three Card Badugi”, and would lose to ANY four card Badugi. Even A, K , Q, J multicolored beats A223 with all 4 suits different.
Also any 3 card Badugi hand in turn beats any 2 card Badugi. The hand 6,8,8,8 with the 6 and one of the 8’s of different suits can only beat a worse 2 card Badugi hand like 9,9,7,7 with a 9 and 7 of different suits.
A four card flush or straight flush like 7,8,9,10 of hearts would be considered a one card 7 Badugi with the lowest or best card being the 7, but this hand would still beat the one card Badugi hand of four eights (8,8,8,8), since the one card 7 low is lower than a one card 8 low.
