The most popular variation from the foregoing game is for the winner,

i.e. the one who first plays out his cards, to only take the stake

for Game from the board, the players paying to the pool the penalty for

their unplayed card or cards, and distributing them on whichever chance

they prefer, except that all the eight must be covered. In such a case

the regular dressing of the board by the players at the commencement of

each deal as previously described is omitted, the dealer alone paying a

single stake, which he may also place where he chooses.
