As noted in my last post, the pot is only won if it is outright. Two players with 2 tricks and one player with one, and nobody wins anything.
Also, the real rules are that you match the size of the pot for a bouree (although this can get crazy fast, even if you play for pennies)
Another adaptation that is good especially if you are playing party poker rules (aka max penalty for bouree) is to have a second ante in order to draw.
