Any updates on this game? Is it still played in London? Is it spreading? I played a lot of whist back in the day and would love to try this. I suppose it won't catch on in the US but hey, War is the simplest game in the Whist Family and look how it did in the casinos. Maybe I'll make some player mats to at least try it.

Question: In the WoO picture I can see the "Bonus Bet" spot, but what is the side bet to the right? It looks like "Hn5". I did some online searching and got shown the WoO "21+3" page which kind of makes sense but I dunno...

Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Sadly the game isn't in my local casino any more; I'm not sure about other casinos. The side bet and basic game is described here - http://www.ukcasinotablegames.info/3cardwhist.html . The other side bet is a variant on Three-Card prime paying if colours are the same. (3/1 Player; 4/1 Player and Dealer, 5/1 Player, Dealer and Trumps).

That is sad. It's such a clever idea, one of those rare casino games where you really have to think about every card you play. I was already memorizing the strategy you devised. Oh well. Maybe it'll get picked up by online casinos.
