Challenge yourself with a game
Science has shown that when we challenge our brains with new activities, it can not only create new brain cells but also strengthen the bonds between them. In addition, it can also help against the build-up of proteins that can be harmful to the brain. The great thing is that there are so many ways we can challenge ourselves that range from simple to complex. One popular method is to challenge yourself to learn and play a new game.
In this article, we will focus on one called Pyramid Poker that will get you thinking, analysing and hopefully strengthening your brain. There are plenty of brain training games and apps out there; some are free, some you need to subscribe to. With Pyramid Poker, you can play in real life with a pack of cards, or if you prefer, you can also find sites online that you can take part in.
How to Play Pyramid Poker
Pyramid Poker is similar to Pai Gow Poker but where the latter uses seven cards, Pyramid Poker uses only three, dealt face down. Jokers are removed from a typical deck of 52 cards and hands are ranked as they normally are in poker — keep in mind that aces are always high. The basic setup is that the dealer and the players are dealt three cards which they arrange into a two card hand and a one card hand. The one card hand must be smaller than the two card hand.
To win, the player must beat both of the dealer’s hands. If the dealer has two winning hands the player loses, if the player and the dealer both have a winning hand then there is a tie. There are a number of details and variations of the game to be aware of, such as the ‘House Way’ so it pays to check out a site like Casino Web for a full grasp and understanding of the rules.
