    Questions from a Confused Brit

    As you can see, this section is for other forms of poker and gambling. Now I understand the rules of games like Omaha, Stud, and blackjack. But what is pineapple and spades? Never heard of them!

    If someone could explain how these games work (and maybe some of the others like the difference between Hose and Horse) I might take a little time out from my No Limit Hold'em and have a go at these other games.

    HORSE and HOSE are mixed games.

    H = Holdem
    O = Omaha
    R = Razz
    S = Seven Card Stud
    E = Seven Card Stud (Hi/Lo)

    Horse is Limit

    *I think its SHOE and not HOSE but whatever lol

    Pineapple is no fun. Being an omaha player, Pineapple just hurts my brain. Its like playing omaha except you dont get to keep your redraws! lol Do I keep my AA and which gives me a set of aces, or do I drop an A and keep the suited K which gives me 4 to a flush? 9 times outta 10 if you're going for the flush, the board will pair and you wouldve had a boat, and vice versa.

    It's HOSE on Stars but it really depends on the order of the games.

    Pinapple and crazy pinapple are loads of fun.

    pineapple is much like hold'em and omaha. There is a small and big blind, there is a flop, turn and river. The difference is that you start with three cards, and you finish with two. Most people play crazy pineapple. this is where you start with three cards, and after the betting round on the flop, but before the turn comes out, you discard one card.

    H.O.R.S.E

    H = Holdem
    O = Omaha
    R = Razz
    S = Stud
    e = stud eight or better a.k.a Stud Hi/Lo


    hose basicly the same except without razz


    bassicly every form of poker has 7 street


    like in holdem 2 hole card = first 2 street then the flop = 3 4 5 + turn = 6 and river = 7

    and now the stud like game 7 card are dealt but one at a time afther each betting round..


    omaha there's 7 also since you only use 2 out of the hole and not 4


    and pineaple and those others game well i cant help you out mate...


    hope it clears up a thing or two

    Spades is a trump game kinda like Hearts if you've ever played, but if you're thinking of a poker version, I used to play a game called "Black Chicago" which is a version of Stud. It's a split pot game where high hand takes half and the highest spade in the hole takes half. It tended to be a pot building game for sure.
    Cheers
