An upcard is a face up playing card.[1] A number of card games incorporate upcards:

  • In stud poker, a card dealt face up to a player that other players can see.[1]
  • In blackjack, the card the dealer deals to himself for all the players to see.[1]
  • In the rummy family, a face up card available for players to draw.[1]

Depending on the rules, a card that is accidentally dealt face up or otherwise revealed may become an upcard, or may be discarded, or may invalidate the entire hand.
