    Short Deck Poker

    The game is played like standard NLHE with a couple exceptions..

    1. The cards two through five are removed from the deck. This makes Flushes less likely than full houses.

    2. Aces wrap around, so the lowest straight is A-6-7-8-9

    3. For betting, each player posts the Small Blind, while the button posts the Big Blind with action starting to the left of the dealer

    4. The Hand Ranks are as follows. Note that Flushes beat Full Houses

    Royal Flush
    Straight Flush
    4 of a Kind
    Flush
    Full House

    Straight
    3 of a Kind
    2 Pair
    1 Pair
    High Card

    Blind Schedule

    Level 1: 25/50
    Level 2: 50/100
    Level 3: 75/150
    Level 4: 100/200
    Level 5: 150/300
    Level 6: 200/400
    Level 7: 250/500 (Colour up 25 chips)
    Level 8: 300/600
    Level 9: 400/800
    Level 10: 500/1k
    Level 11: 700/1.4k (Colour up 100 chips)

    Sorry all! I'm going to have to postponed the tournament as my wife has tested positive for COVID earlier this week and is still testing positive. Everyone's fine (I'm still neg for now) and we even did a 30k bike ride on Saturday.

    I'll re-post, once we're both in the clear and I have a new date. Cheers!
  • Curses!

    But feel better you lovelies.

  • So COVID parties (think chicken-pox) aren't a thing. (jokes)
    Hopefully the vaccine kept or keeps whatever psychosomatic symptoms parable. (more yokes)
