This can be somewhat of an annoyance since you can only make three-of-a-kinds (henceforth abbreviated to "toak"). This means that if you earn a chain or any other type of hand, you must start over. Combos are okay (simultaneously-created toak hands, like in the Triple Smash achievement).

Don't get too concerned with this since the speed is very slow this early in the game. Just follow a few tips and you'll be fine after a couple re-tries.

--Watch the bottom row. When the cards are rising and you're not paying attention, a new row could accidentally cause a full house or some other type of hand that would cause you to restart.

--Watch out for full houses. I can't begin to tell you how many times I had to redo the entire match after trying to get a toak and accidentally making a full house. This will be your most frustrating moment.

--When you're making a hand that causes a card to fall, watch out for what it lands on, it could mess you up and cause plenty of frustration in the end.

--Take your time. There's no rush. As long as you keep the stack of cards low and watch every move you make, there's no reason you can't get this under a half hour easily.

Note that you CAN NOT start a match on speed level 6 then advance one level to get this, you must start from level 1. Sorry.
