Default New (?) Game: HOLDMAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Came up with this last night with my buddies and the help of lots of beer and spliffs.

Holdmaha:

Starts off as hold em, ends as omaha.

Everyone is dealt 2 cards. Normal preflop betting.

See the flop, bet as usual.

Before turn card is shown, everyone is dealt a 3rd card.

Turn betting as usual.

Before river card is shown, everyone is dealt a 4th card.

River betting as usual.

Showdown w/ omaha rules, 2 in your hand 3 in community.

Has to be no limit of course cuz limit is gay.


This game was a LOT of fun.

Anyone ever play this game? Any suggestions for variations?

We considered having everyone's 4th card dealt face up... [img]/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

I have played Nuclear, which is the reverse of what you describe where you discard on the flop and the turn, but you can play 0, 1 or 2.

We played this at a home game last night and it was a lot fun. The only thing we did different was deal the last card up instead of the turn. There was a ton of action and the pots built up pretty quick, we've decided to add it to our rotation.

We've played this in our game for years, except we call it "Holdema" (it rolls of the tongue more easily than "Holdmaha" imo).

There are probably quite a few other home games throughout the world that have invented this exact game!

The best part is having no pair/draw on the turn, and making the nuts on the river anyway.

See this thread from 2005, which proves definitively that our home game invented this form of poker:
