About your words...
Poker dies because of many bad decisions but also because of other amateurs who works to marketing and who destroy players dreams of achieve something good.
Surely, they can invent many games, but you think a game will be so successful, like poker hold'em? At this moment i do not believe that. Blink

some poker rooms are trying to come up with their own kinds of poker games .... but all the poker games are already invented .... and I think it’s better to come up with something difficult .... here you need a brilliant idea ... To attract people to the game .... but it seems to me impossible .... This is like various types of chess .... someone plays them but 99 percent of people play classical chess

They havent finished yet with the new games. That is what i believe.
Soon they will come up with another new variant of the game.
And if that one is good, then all the others will copy it, simply by renaming it.
Same thing with the, fast or speed poker Smile

If a poker room invents a new game, then the others will not be able to steal their invention.
I think there will be a patent and can not be used by anyone except the inventor of course.
If you own the registered trademark is ok and you can ask for money, from other rooms if they want to buy that game. Smile

There's not a hope in hell of any poker room using this format,the games dead on its arse 1week in,I would like to think they didn't waste money on a patent for it.i reckon we could come up with a variant of poker that would actually work. Bless them for trying.but it's only for the bingo folk,glgl on the felts mobsters. Worship

The poker always had variants. Including the deals of the players during one tournament, like split the pot or running the river twice, etc. The real awesome kind of poker`s variant maybe accepted this deals inside the tournament. You may be playing one of this free rules tournament and you could make a bet, like "the first who wins with dead man hand (27o) may win the 10% of the prizes", the moderator approve it and then is legalize... Big Smile

i wonder when the day comes they invent a game, where you have to choose a chicken that picks your cards, and one of five monkeys - who sit in front of three buttons "call, fold, raise" - which you think will do the right decisions for you.

I keep searching the internet about video's of this game.
Still havent found a single one, to see what this is all about.
It looks like not too many are playing this format, that is why there are no videos up yet.
Will have to wait a bit more for them Smile

Pay per view! Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile , they want to keep it secret because it is so awesome that it may impact to your health! Really, I think this can not be good. What´s the difference? Instead a random sent from a 52 deck of cards, you may choose your pair between a random eight cards deck...have no sense. At least for me. There are the Stud, the Razz, the Horse...a lot of good and used games!

It must have been a first, for a new game that has been introduced for that long,
and still there is no video about it.
I wonder if there are player playing this game.
Many may have tried, but how many of them considering it, more than a game for some fun,
and something steady to win money from ? Smile

pajalnick had played there, he explains it in the first thread when he was winning good money there. Then, still in the first page, he told that all the money that he won be lost, and he said that never will return to play it. Instead his explanation, I don´t understand how is the bets. There, as pajalnick told, all the community cards appear together so there aren´t preflop, flop, turn...?

I explain all the layouts again ..... 8 cards are issued .... these are common cards for all .... of these 8 cards, the player can choose any two .... after some time 5 cards are dealt on the table ... .. and who has a better combination and wins ..... and not the fact that it is better to choose better cards .... then the win is not very big .... And if you choose some ridiculous cards ... for example 2 and 9 different suits .... and suddenly there will be a win .... then you take the whole bank ..... in general, this is a lottery .... I advise poker players not to play it

The explanation is ok, we got it Smile
But it is another thing reading about a game, and another seeing a video about it.
But from the loos of it, with no video still up, it must be a big fail as a new concept and game.
You could say it is more than a slot game, than a poker one Smile

What should a video of the game show? There are no decisions to make and all 5 cards are dealt in one go. So no drama when turn or river bring cards that change the outcome of the hand. Would be like making a video of a spin on the roulette wheel.

I did not play that game, but i've seen on youtube how to play on electronic devices.
I did not understand this game and if i'm curious, i'll have to to pursue more.
I saw 4 cards and the moment.
You hit a card and this card goes to the left in the middle and at the same time two cards appear.
It's a new game for me and i'll have to understand it. Confused

Well, I don’t know why you don’t like this idea ...... I think the idea is awful .... winning is the most ridiculous choice of cards ... then winning is big .... choosing the obvious cards two aces for example or something else something like that .... But as a rule such a combination removes at least half of the players and the win is divided into all .... if it is this win .... because a person can win with some ridiculous card .. .. what happens quite often .... Try to play .... you will see that this is a terrible game ... I do not recommend .... if only as entertaining eniya

There are probably enough players who love this game.
It's not a game to everyone's taste.
Honestly to be, there are many players who hate this game.
I read more negative comments on the internet but are also positive.
Every player with his hobbies. Smile
If the game is not successful, he will be excluded, but for moment this game has some traffic. Smile
