Hi everybody. All systems are go for a AVP/PA mixed game Friday night (2/13) at GVR. Join Jon Friedberg, Queen J, Scooter and possibly others in a 3/6 game (or 2!) at one of the best and nicest spots for poker in the Vegas area. It promises to be a fun night. Expected start time is 6pm, but could be a bit later. Will update this thread as more details come available.

We'll use most of the traditional variations from the standard AVP mixed game of past years. Some of the games are unique, but always a blast to play. It's also a great way to learn and play these games, with minimal risk, since it's 3/6!

Games to choose from:
Badugi
2-7 Triple Draw
Omaha 8
Razz
Double Flop Omaha
Stud 8
4 Card Ocean Crazy Pineapple

  1. Here is a brief explanation of all the games:

    Omaha 8
    Regular Omaha (4 cards to each player, must use two in your hand and three on the 5 card community board), with the pot being split between the best high hand (Royal Flush is best possible high hand), and the best low hand (A2345 is the best possible low). Cards can be cross used for both high and low. A low is possible only if there are 3 cards 8 or below on the community board. There is an 8 or better qualifier for the low.

    Double Flop Omaha
    Regular Omaha High, with two complete boards, one on top of the other. The best high hand ON EACH BOARD gets half the pot.

    Stud 8
    7 Card Stud with the best 8 or better low hand getting half the pot.

    Badugi
    Triple draw game. Each player is dealt 4 cards. The best possible hand is A234 RAINBOW. Player draw three times to get the lowest possible hand, of 4 different suits, with no pairs. If you have a pair or two of the same suit, you have less then a 4 card hand. A KQJ10 of four different suits (a four card hand) beats and 3 card hand. Aces are low.

    2-7 Triple Draw
    Triple draw game. Best hand is 23457 with no flush. 5 lowest cards possible, without it being a straight or a flush. There are three draws. Aces are high, and thus bad. Pairs, straights, and flushes count against you.

    4 Card Ocean Crazy Pineapple
    Best high hand wins the pot. Each player is dealt 4 cards. There is a three card flop, and a betting round. Players discard one card after the betting round on the flop. There is a turn, and another betting round. Another card is discarded after this round. There is a River, with a betting round, and then finally an OCEAN (total of 6 board cards), with another betting round. Just like hold'em you can use both, one, or neither of your hole cards to make the best FIVE card hand.

    Razz
    7 Card stud played for low only. Best hand is A2345. Straights and flushes do not count against the low. There is no qualifier.
