I remember there was a pokersite where you could play that. I tried it a couple of times, was quite fun. Unfortunately I don`t remember where it was.
Damn, I want to play it now, lol.

It seems interesting. Never heard of this one before and just googled for it.
At first when i saw the thread's title thought was the game were in heads up both of the players stick
a card on their forehead for the other to see and bet accordingly Smile
Ive seen in on tv a couple of times.

That link posted above explains pretty much all about the game, i know Ivy and Barry were the first pros that bet crazy amounts of cash on that game.

As for online i also remember that a online poker room had the game but i can't remember it Confused

I was watching this out in Vegas and for the most part from what I could learn by observing there were what I think was 3 hands dealt to each player and the stacks were uneven. Matter of fact I think I'm lost already so I'm going to go read the site paulparadise posted.l

Well, I was right about the 3 hands, but the players actually made them up they weren't dealt out in three hands. I did read the site, but it's a lot to take in although I did catch that if all three hands make straights or flushes it's a winning set. Very strange with a lot of thought!

Seems to me some of the big time pros were showing an interest in that a little while back. And ya,...seems a little strange to me. More of a novelty form of poker. I don't think we'll be seeing any big time tournaments involving too many big shots any time soon.....but it is a bit of a change up from the same old same old!

Demo you are definately right, these is one of those novelty games that pros try from time to time just to escape from routine.

Still this game seems to be more interesting to me than those draw games that pros play nowadays online.

I saw it before on the Action Poker Network but I think all those skins have folded now.

The only place I've seen it is a new site called GridPoker and they're just coming out of testing and are offering some freerolls and things there... nice software and could be good if they can get some traffic
