Poker games wanting play

Postby Mahn В» 25.04.2019

.

I know there have been other threads on this topic in the past, but the OpenForum search and the forum itself is currently crapping down its pant leg. Give me some poker games you enjoy. I've had success alternating the typical dealer's choice poker with 'casino poker' - where we play Texas Hold'em or Omaha high-low split. You can't really play these as dealer's choice games because they're positional poker games your strategy depends on your position in relation to the dealer , so we would play an hour of these games, then alternate with an hour of dealer's choice.

Perhaps Black Mariah? It's seven card stud, only difference is if the Queen of Spades comes face up, you have to redeal and re-ante. Anyone who's already folded is out. It's a variation, I know, but pots quickly get large, especially if she keeps turning up. Happened 13 times in one game with me and some friends a few years ago. For more silly fun, combine that with "Follow the Queen" all queens are wild, and the next face up card after a face up queen It gets highly entertaining.

Hands go from godly, to horrid, to everyone starting over. Funny, funny stuff. At least, it is if you're not the one with that godly hand when the next face up queen comes and you built it off of the fact that fours are wild, but now they're not Not a poker hand, but our poker nights typically degenerate into games of asshole, with the rankings determined by your success playing poker.

It makes it fun after a few hours of playing poker. There's a bunch of funky games I like, but a personal favorite is called For this hand, 3s are wild. So, the best hand you can have is 3 Aces. Those who held their cards compare with each other to see who has the best.

All the losers pay the best hand the amount of the pot. This hand, only fives are wild, and all poker hands are considered. This hand, only sevens are wild. Each player chooses his best five cards for comparison. Drop compare as in step 5. Re-ante and go back to step 2 hands of 3. Notes about how long to play, etc: 1 If a player holds his cards alone, he places a token usually a penny or something in front of him.

If a player accumulates 3 tokens, the game is over and he takes the pot. This is a fast paced game with no "betting. My personal favorite as well. Only it didn't go over very well when I tried it at my local game, as everyone went in on the hand too many times in a row, causing the pot to explode.

Now the game is forbidden. If only one person goes in on the 3 or 5 hands, that person takes the pot and everyone re-ante's. Also, the winner takes the pot, and all losers match the pot. My own game - Bid All players are dealt 5 cards, 5 cards are dealt to the middle, face down. The top card is flipped over, and people proceed to bid on what they are willing to pay for that card, auction style.

After winning a card, that player must discard one card, and everyone bids on that. When someone drops a card that no one wants, it is tossed, and the next out of the middle is flipped. Everyone bids and discards until no interest is left, then the remaining original cards are flipped. Once the last round generates no interest, the hand is called. The winner takes all bid winnings. The game turns to gold when one of the last cards to be turned over is a wild.

Wilds are usually called before the deal, as in every other poker game. It's not poker, but there's You can also try Anaconda or King's Little. Huh on February 06, at A good, simple game for a change of pace: Sign of the Cross or, if you're playing with suitably witty partners, Sign of the Cross-Dresser.

Dealer hands out four cards to each player, then deals a cross of five cards, face down, on the table. Flip one card e. Flip another card, but from a different "row" e. Flip another card Last card flipped is 5. After all cards are face up, players can use up to three cards from either of the two rows i.

This means that the pot is potentially split between the best and worst hand where worst is a function of the numerical value of the cards in your hand, so long as you don't have an actual hand, e. So, for low, [Ace,2,4,5,6] "beats" [2,3,5,6,7]. The best low hand is [Ace,2,3,4,5] aka "The Wheel" , which is a straight, but also counts as low.

This adds yet another dimension to the betting because, with The Wheel, you can declare both high and low, and take the whole pot if your straight beats the best high hand on the table. Declaring happens when all bets are in.

Then you sort out who has the best low hand and who has the best high hand. The two winners split the pot. In the event of an uneven pot, the high hand keeps the difference.

For example, if the pot is 25 dollars, the high hand gets 13 and the low hand gets How am I supposed to go clean up at Vegas if I can't practice concealing my tells? Thanks for the suggestions. Sign of the Cross is what we call Criss-Cross and we do high-low sometimes. Each player is dealt one card and the dealer takes one. Aces are low. If you don't like your card, you may trade it with the person to your left. If the person you're trading with has a king highest card , he can block the trade.

If someone trades with the dealer, the dealer can trade with the top of the deck. After all the trading is done, everyone shows their card. Low card has to "push" a leg into the middle of the table. If there are multiple low cards, all push. Once you push all 3 legs, you're out unless you want to buy another leg for twice the price of the original. Pot goes to the last player with a leg left.

Pimp guts Everyone antes and is dealt 3 cards, one of which is face-up. Two cards are dealt to the "pimp," facedown in the middle of the table. Only high card, 2 of a kind, and 3 of a kind are worth anything.

The player s with the high card showing is pimped in against the pimp. Other players go around and annouce whether they wish to play against the pimp. If the pimp has the high hand, all players who played match the pot.

Everyone reantes and the game goes on. The game ends when only one player is pimped in and he beats the pimp. We called Criss-Cross "Crossroads", with one minor exception: it was always high-low or you could try both, but I think I only saw that pulled off twice.

If you took high, the card in the middle of the three you took was wild. If you called low, it wasn't. Ahh yes, also called "pass the trash". A good game. We did it with a dollar bill each, and then when all four corners were folded you were done. Also, the dealer cut the deck Usually our end of the night game. Lots of fun. Especially having a king, and watching one of those aces come around the group towards you quickly Everyone who wants to play antes up.

Each person who antes up gets two cards. Each player then throws in the ante value again to keep playing after looking at their cards. If only one person wants to play, they play against the top two cards from the deck. Highest value takes the pot. Highest value is a six and a nine, followed by two nines, followed by two sixes, followed by all other natural pairs in order, obviously , followed by pairs with wilds, etc.

Dealer hands out four cards to each player, then deals a cross of five cards, face down, on the table. Four cards are then delt, pkker the card representing the number chosing being flipped up. It is quite moronic for a person holding a 2 face down to ever knock as unless some one brunette poker games holding 2 aces they automatically have half the plzy. Only it didn't go over very well when I tried it at my local game, as everyone went in on the hand too many times in a row, causing the pot to explode.

Bluffing is video poker games fun a player with a weak hand forces another player with a stronger hand to fold. Dealer flips over the top card and shows it to the first player on his left. Hope the descriptions arent too long. That player can either choose to take the offered card, or gamble, and take the next card off the top of the deck, agmes getting to see it. If he is wrong, he throws the amount poksr the pot.

Highest value is a six and a nine, followed by two nines, followed by two sixes, click by all other natural pairs in order, obviouslyfollowed by pairs with wilds, etc. That's all I can think of that hasn't already been mentioned. Heck, go back far enough, and your current C-game wating is better than your A-game was back then. This adds free another dimension to the fire because, with Play Wheel, you can declare both high and low, and take the whole pot if your straight beats online best high hand on the table. They get first option of one of the three up cards, games the card on top of the deck.

Every one that is still in at continue reading point takes either 1, 2, or no chips in their hand. The seventh card is given out facedown, with no choice for the players. The time spent in self analysis will improve your game and you will be earning more in the future poker games.

Many players get link up in wanting to just check and call their way until gamss river. Trying to playing your A-game all the time seems simple in theory when you look only at your current A-game. Posted: Sun Feb 09, am. Red cards wantinf worth nothing, and black cards are worth face value, royal cards are worth 10 points and Aces are worth 15 points. Preferably, everyone likes to use his blinds but antes are always there at your disposal.

In this situation, the odds are definitely in your favor to win the hand and take the full pot, so you can make a high bet. Another vote for here. I bet if you have the right attitude, skills wantting this game and can stay calm then no one can beat you in this game. You are not required to ever take a card, this plays into the strategy aspect of the game.

There is NO rule that one must bluff. So do not play poker when you know you are not at your best. Instead vary your game to such an extent that it becomes really hard for your opponent to read your game.

Hope I explained that correctly. Deal 4 cards to everyone, deal 1 to the pot -- the pot card is link for the time being so that if you like you can draw upto 4 new cards. Happened 13 times in one game with me and some friends a few years ago. So do not play poker when you know you are not at your best.

If only one person goes in on the 3 or 5 hands, that person takes the pot and everyone re-ante's. Play free pokies today! For example if you know that one of your opponents always raises in a certain position and another one wantinb to every re-raise, you can use this information to play against them. Perhaps Black Mariah?

Preferably, everyone likes to use his blinds but antes are always there at your disposal. For more fun, add a "dickhead" as we call it, or dummy hand that can win the pot. If someone does have Jacks or better no bluffing about it or you pay agmes the potbet around then draw your cards. I sometimes play 7 stud with a variation called Wanging - the high spade in the hole splits the pot with the high hand.

Being challenged is a necessary component for both learning and bames in the zone. If you have a wild up King or Fouror the high card on the table could be multiple peopleyou are stuck in. If you go for the whole deal and lose one, you're out.

Reading the game of your opponent is a crucial part of poker and if you are good at it then you can outshine others. I bet real high and kept raising it. The Problem with Easy Money Sport thrives on close competition to keep spectators watching. Be Prepared.
