1 2 3 4 | | |/ c c c-5 c c c-6 c c c-7 \ 8The player tries to maximize the following types of 3-ples in that order:

- A triplet: 3 kings, or 3 4's etc. 3 Aces are the highest
- A sequence: 6-7-8 or 3-4-5 or A-2-3 or A-K-Q. A-K-Q is highest and 3-2-1 lowest (though some games treat the later to be higher). Also, the 3 cards could be in any order i.e. 2-3-A is the same as A-2-3. A "pure" sequence (i.e. a sequence all of whose cards are from the same suite) is higher than an ordinary sequence. In fact, any pure sequence is higher than every non-pure sequence.
- A color: 3 cards of the same suite e.g. 3, 5 and J of Hearts. If tw players have colors in the same round, the higher cards (A counting as highest followed by K-Q-J-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2) determine the winner. All suites have the same value i.e. there is no suite-hierarchy.
- A pair: 2 cards with the same face value (and clearly of different suites unless multiple decks are mixed) e.g. H3, C3 and C7. A-pair is highest followed by K-pair etc. In case of tied pairs, the third card decides the winner.
- highest card: when none of the above combinations is possible, the higher cards determine the winner.
