Badugi

Badugi (also known as Badougi, Paduki or Padooki) is a draw poker variant similar to triple draw, but with hand values not dissimilar to lowball. The betting structure and overall play of the game is identical to a standard poker game using blinds, but, unlike traditional poker which involves a minimum of five cards, players' hands contain only four cards at any one time. During each of three drawing rounds, players can trade zero to four cards from their hands for new ones from the deck, in an attempt to form the best badugi hand and win the pot. Badugi is a gambling game with the object being to win money in the form of pots. The winner of the pot is the person with the best badugi hand at the conclusion of play (known as the showdown).

Originating in the U.S. in about 2000, Badugi is now played in cardrooms around the world and online.
