WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE IN FANTASY LAND?
Well first off you will receive the relevant royalties from your last hand. In the above example, assuming you’ve ‘scooped’, you will get 6 points for scooping, 4 points for the flush in your back hand, nothing for your middle hand and 7 for your pair of Queens on your front hand. Giving you a total of 17 points for that hand. (See here for info on scoring in Open Face Chinese Poker)
So once you have your points you will play the next hand in Fantasy Land. Here you will be dealt all 13 cards up front which you will arrange in the usual way keeping your cards face down. The other player(s) will then play a normal hand of Open Face Chinese Poker, being dealt 5 cards each, setting them up and then they will receive one card at a time until they have their hand. This gives us a huge advantage as we can see all of our 13 cards before we set the hand up so we can see beforehand if we can make flushes/straights etc.
HOW DO WE STAY IN FANTASY LAND?
To stay in Fantasy Land for a second successive hand you will need to achieve a full house or greater in your back hand. Then, assuming you don’t foul, you will stay in Fantasy Land as well as receiving the relevant royalties.
