Default Vegas HoldEm

Here's a little spin on the traditional hold'em games we know and love...created by a couple of my friends.

You play the game like normal, except when action in the hand gets down to just two people, if both players agree, each player picks one of the other player's hole cards for them to turn over.

You end up seeing one of your opponent's cards, but they're not picking the card, so they can't NOT expose the ace they might have, etc.

It's a lot of fun...can be a real action killer if the card exposed happens to be one that pairs the board, and beats your hand, or if can create a lot of action if the neither card exposed seems to fit in with the board at all.

We played this frequently the last time we were in Vegas - everyone loved it. Give it a try sometime!

thats sounds like a great fun new twist to the game .....maybe the powers to be in the sites should write software for heads up tournys that allows this and see how it goes.

I agree - that sounds really fun. I would really like to give that a try - not for money at first, obviously, but who knows, maybe it will catch on like wildfire just like NL Holdem did.

It adds a whole new strategical element to the game. The strategy, and playing your opponent (not just the cards), is one of the things that really appeals to me. That's part of the reason I enjoy poker, and play as much as I do.

Definitely want to give it a try

That sounds interesting. However, it seems to be more of a gimick. In my home game it is hard enough to get people to play such wild games as Omaha for crying out loud.
This would not go over big. I remember the first time I mentioned Omaha Hi-Lo after we initally played Omaha. Everyone is like you have an unfair advantage.

I like your open minded home gamers.
Sounds good - keep on the good work.

I agree, this game doesn't sound that great to me. It sounds more like a gimmick game that I may playif I'm bored enough. I think that these kind of spin-offs pf games are kind of silly, but that's just my opinion. If you have fun playing them, you should continue to. They're just not for me.

It's another small twist to the normal texas holdem game. The idea is good, but I think it could use some adjustments. I think a lot of these games are being created for something different. Many of the poker boom players are starting to get tired of the same old game and new stuff is being invented and tried out. This is just my opinion, but I think it's right on.

Me and a couple of friends played vegas holdem last night and it was pretty fun. We were a bit short handed so we though we would make it intersting. It really sucks though when you flop trip Kingsand the other guy turns over your instead of your But other then that it was really fun.

We also took the game a step farther by playing the same thing but with Omaha and fliping over two of the other guys cards. That game is totally crazy.
