Open Chinese Poker
Recently, more and more poker players worldwide are turning their attention to non-traditional poker disciplines. Among them, Open Chinese Poker is gaining popularity at a fast pace. This game has several varieties, among which “Pineapple” is in the greatest demand.
This game attracts gamers by the need to use their intellectual abilities more than the well-known Texas poker, Omaha or other types of poker. In addition, the number of fans of the discipline is relatively small, which significantly increases the chances of each individual poker player.
Briefly about the game
This discipline has its own rules, which are connected with traditional varieties only by a standard deck of 52 sheets and the usual hierarchy of combinations.
However, there are no trades in the game and the participant who managed to score the most points wins.
At least two players participate in one game, maximum four. Their goal is to make three combinations in each of the three boxes. The top box is designed for a three-card combination, and on the middle and bottom one, five cards are to be placed. In this case a prerequisite – the increase in the value of the set from top to bottom.
Players start with five cards initially, and then are given three more cards in each round. Of these, you should send one to pass, and the rest to use. It is impossible to move maps to other places, and time to think about actions is strictly regulated.
Poker players should be prepared for the fact that a large number of training materials and strategies regarding this poker variety are unlikely to be found since it is relatively new and many of its aspects and nuances are still being studied.
Some experts predict a huge popularity of this poker discipline in the near future. If these predictions come true, it will not be as hard to be a successful player in it as it is in Hold’em or Omaha because of the huge competition. It is likely that the pioneers will be able to earn big money after the projected influx of people to tables occurs.
