Another poker variant
This is a simple one. The change to the usual 7-card stud format isn't strictly necessary, but it gives a bit more uncertainty in the early betting rounds, since players have either one card plus a wild, or two wild cards. Also, the two hole cards at the end provide some bluffing potential for the fool who stayed in praying for his other three wild jacks. It's a money-gobbler, too, with six betting rounds.
Best Friend: 7-card stud, dealt one down, four up, two down, with betting after the second and each subsequent card. Each player’s first upcard and all cards of its rank are wild for that player.
And now, off I go to try it out. Double stakes tonight, since there are only a few of us and we're all experienced.
