Me and my buddies came up with a new variant of Texas
Holdem a few weeks ago after we got bored with regular Texas Holdem. We don't have a name for it, I guess Utah Holdem since we live there. I just wanted to post it up here since we've been having some good fun playing it and I wanted to share it for anyone who wanted to try something new. Anyway, how it's played...
It's best played with five players and NO more. It just doesn't work that great. Each player is dealt six cards, players will choose one card from their hand (not showing it) and give it to the dealer, he will shuffle them and they will be used as the community cards. Along with the usual check/bet/raise/fold, players can swap any/all of their cards for a fee; 0.10/0.20 = 0.10, 0.25/0.50 = 0.25, 0.50/1.00 = 0.50 and so on, this money will be placed in the pot. The rest plays out like normal.
*If there are less than five players/not enough for an entire board the dealer will add the necessary amount of cards from the top of the deck. This will be done after players have been dealt their hands.
Any questions? If anyone decides to try it, tell me if you enjoyed it or not. I'd be very interested to hear.
