(FR) JEU DE POKER MODIFIE, FIVE ALIVETM, ET SYSTEME INFORMATIQUE DE MISE EN OEUVRE
Abstract:
(EN) A poker game (Fig.1) which provides the player the opportunity to change strategies several times per hand. The game includes dealing a predetermined number of cards to the player (102) for playing the game and iteratively allowing the player to select one originally dealt card for replacement (103, 104), replacing selected card with another card dealt from the deck (105) and repeating the selecting and replacing steps until the player either stands on a winning hand (111, 112) or no cards remain from the originally dealt hand (109). The game is implemented on a computer terminal, a stand-alone video game or a handheld game.
(FR) Cette invention se rapporte à un jeu de poker (Fig. 1) qui offre au joueur la possibilité de changer plusieurs fois de stratégies au cours d'une donne. Ce jeu consiste à donner un nombre préétabli de cartes au joueur (102) pour lui permettre de jouer et à l'autoriser, de manière répétée, à sélectionner une carte de la donne initiale en vue de son remplacement (103, 104), à remplacer la carte sélectionnée par une autre carte issue du talon (105) et à répéter les étapes de sélection et de remplacement jusqu'à ce que, soit le joueur possède une donne gagnante (111, 112), soit aucune carte ne reste de la donne initiale (109). Ce jeu est mis en oeuvre sur un terminal d'ordinateur, en tant que jeu vidéo autonome ou en tant que jeu portatif.
