Thirty-Three

I came up with this game in November of this year.  From its outset, it has gotten lots of action.  Not only am I dealing it, but as many as four other players are dealing it as well. It plays well with up to nine players.

It is simple to deal; simple to play!

Each player receives three cards face-down. Three common cards, face-up, are then placed in the center of the table.                                                   
Players may use  ONE of the three (A, B, or C) cards along with their three hole-cards.
There is a round of betting.
Each player then receives one card face-up. Players may use their three hole cards and their face-up card with ONE of the three (A, B, or C) cards.
There is a round of betting.
Each player then receives another card face-up. Players may use their three hole cards and their two face-up cards with ONE of the three (A, B, or C) cards.
There is a round of betting.
Then a final common card  D is placed face-up on the board.
The board now shows A    C  
                                                     D
Players may use their three hole cards and their two face-up cards with D   plus ONE of the three (A, B, or C) cards.
There is a final round of betting.
 
This is a non-declare game.  However, there are conditions required to qualify for a winning hand.
Conditions: Two-pair-or-better for high hand splits the pot with best  low hand (any low can win). (If  no player has two pair or better, best low hand takes entire pot.)
 
Players may use one A  B or C card for high hand and another (or the same) card for low hand.
 
Basically each player has five of his or her own cards (three,  face-down; two, face-up), one common card, D, plus either A, B, or C — making a seven-card hand. Best five-card hands (of seven-cards available)  win. It is not a requirement that players must use common cards.
GAME: Thirty-Three
RANKING: Seven ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ
