Are you signed up at Carbon? They have a badugi FR at 5:15 EST (that's 16:15 on the Carbon clock I think). In addition to the actual rules, the strategies are interesting. For instance, depending on how many draws are left, you might want to discard a J or 10, even if it's in a suit you've not duplicated. And pay even more attention to # of cards opponents draw than in a regular 5 card draw game. We are not going for flushes or straights, so a draw # is critical - unless they're bluffing. A guy taking no cards but not betting big? A badugi to the Q or K.
But as I mentioned here once before, a guy at my table lost a few hands to what seemed like crap. He finally asked "what IS this?" To which I replied "If you really don't know, you won't believe me." The table got a good laugh.
