Anyone for strip holdem?

I'm a DJ on our student radio station. A few weeks ago I interviewed the admin of one of the local poker sites. It's probably testament to the interest that online poker is generating these days, but the switchboard went wild!

That is to say, I got three callers. The first tried to order a large pepperoni pizza with extra cheese from me. The second wanted to know whether I wanted to sell my home. But the third, the THIRD caller was from a girl who wanted to know if she could play a "strip" variation of holdem. She said she was hanging out with some of her girlfriends, and was "bored".

Naturally, my answer was affirmative; we suggested that she play with chips as per usual, just with smaller than average stacks, and that players would get re-buys with items of clothing. I also suggested that she come into the studio and we could pilot what was surely a radio first; at least south of the Hex-river valley. She said that would be "awesome" and was bringing a deck of cards right over. She must have gotten lost though; Cape Town's road system isn't exactly user-friendly...

Strip poker, in my mind at least, has always been 5 card draw. But Strip holdem is intriguing in so many ways. Because it's much more skills-based, you're more likely to get eye-candy while keeping your own clothes on. That said, these kinds of shenanigans normally only happen after the second bottle of Tequila, and I can only imagine that trying to calculate the implied odds of an inside straight draw with one overcard rat-faced with Bianca-Jade's and Melanie's fine mammaries on display in front of you would be a task worthy of the Olympics. Also, HE is still very male-dominated. Good news if you like guys, bad news if you don't. Very good news if you can convince the visiting Stockholm University volleyball team that it's an "easy game".

Has anyone tried playing Strip Holdem? Did it work (as a concept, not as a means of getting people naked...)? Any awesome war-stories? I'm eager to hear.. and so is Tammy, still driving on the M3 somewhere desperately trying to find the UCT Radio offices...

This is such a terrible idea :(

On TV, yes :D (if the authorities would let you).

Radio lacks a significant and necessary element. Several of your listeners would likely need medical attention after an hour of this :eek:

No, but my wife and I used to play Strip Rummy on a regular basis when we were newlyweds. We had to give it up when the babies reached the age that they couldn`t be relied on to go to sleep at 8 and stay that way. It`s not a game that`s improved by interruptions. :rolleyes:

We used to play that winner got to choose the next game, and that`s as much as I`m saying about it. :)

Although there is a HUGE window in the studio that would have provided a serious distraction for the little huddles of students doing maths / English / Bible study

TV, radio, makes no difference to me! Sure, radio has it's drawbacks, but whose interests are we talking about here? :)

Strip poker has nothing to do with taking your clothes off. It's poker with a stripped deck, i.e. some of the cards removed as in games such as Americana, which is five card stud with only 7s to Aces in the deck.

Sorry to spoil the party.

Yep there were definitely cards from 2 to 6 in their decks... I had to play several times to make sure it wasn't a one-off... but after thorough examination I can confirm that this definitely wasn't strip poker. :p

They also seem to have the wrong idea. :D
and lo, there comes a time when a man discovers what he's been looking for his whole life, what the actual meaning of life is, his life's quest. For me, it's arrived this very moment when I randomly clicked on this thread, and discovered the beauty which is strip poker online.
I may be gone some time, I just hit a straight against the honey in the black dress............well lookie here, she's lost the dress.
Call work, tell em Im off sick for a month please, tell em Im bedridden.
Come here you beauty.................
