I just realized that this is Yahtzee.
No, no, no.
This is not how to play poker dice.
First: The ranking is wrong.
A straight is higher than a full house in poker dice.
In poker with cards a full house is higher, but not in poker dice. It's a probability fact and it's simply a matter of comparing how many full houses can be made with 5 dice contra how many straights. Straights are less and therefore higher.
Secondly: The first shooter of the dice, the banker, has the choice of how many throws he wants; 1 throw, 2 throws or 3 throws and no other player can make more throws than the first shooter.
Thirdly: Dice set aside cannot be thrown again by a player.
Fourth: Yes, poker dice can be played as a pot game, but it's best played as a banking game as it is intended to be.
Once, poker dice was a Casino game and that version was called "Klondike", but was later replaced with "Faro" which in turn was replaced with "Black Jack".
Now days, poker dice is played as a "private game".
In this game, one person is established as the banker, and all other players make even money bets against the bank. If a player makes a $10 bet, then they stand to either win or lose $10 depending on the roll of the dice.
When a player is established as the banker, they put up an initial stake known as the bank, or center bet. Once they have placed their stake, and announced the amount, the other players have a chance to cover or "fade" their bet. Starting with the player to the banker's left, and proceeding clockwise around the circle, each player in turn can fade a portion of the bank, as much as they like, until the entire bank is covered or every player has had a chance to make a bet.
If the initial stake is $100, the first player might choose to fade $20, the next player $20, and the next player $60. Then the entire bank is covered and no more bets are placed this round. Or, if the initial stake is $100, six players choose to fade $10 each, and no one else wishes to bet, then the banker pockets the unfaded portion of the bank ($40) and plays for only the stakes that were covered.
The banker shoot the dice first and makes his best combination with one throw, two throws or three throws. All the other players in turn or player with a bet against the banker, tries to beat the banker with the same amount of throws as the banker, beginning with the player to the bankers left and if successful wins the bet, otherwise lose the bet.
With a tie, no money is won or lost.
After all players had their turn, the bets are settled according to the roll of the dice. If the same player maintains control of the bank, he may add as much money as he wishes to his stake, or let the bank stand at whatever amount remains after all the bets are settled. A new round begins, the players fade again just as above, and so the game continues.
Control of the bank can change under certain circumstances. If all the players beat the banker in one round, they break the bank, and control of the bank then passes to the next player to the banker's left, who establishes his own initial stake as above.
A banker can also withdraw the bank at anytime after all the bets are settled and let the next player to the left to be the new banker who makes a new center bet.

You can actually play this game with normal dice, You don’t actually need to buy the other dice shown in the video
I wonder if it would be possible to play poker dice but texas holdem style
Without having watched this yet, I would have thought it would be like with normal poker, but using dice instead of cards.
What's the highest quality (heaviest/densest) poker dice in the market (16 mm to 22 mm)?
Still one of my favorite channels!🤩
I use to play this game alone
Where can I find a set
I've had a set of these dice for years and had no clue how to play. Thanks
