BURRACO

Burraco is one of the most popular foreign card games to be played in Italy. Today, the Federazione Italiana Burraco (F.I.Bur. – the Italian Burraco Federation) boasts a vast, extensive network, equal in size to the chess federation. There are thousands of Burraco enthusiasts in Italy, who take part in tournaments in the regional and provincial clubs.

The game is played with the same cards as Texas Hold'em Poker, that is to say with an Anglo-American deck (with spades, diamonds, clubs and hearts). Unlike poker, the two jokers in the pack are also used and, instead of using just one deck, two identical decks are used. When played in person, it’s usual to use two decks with different coloured backs (usually red and blue), making a total of 108 cards.
