Short deck rule differences:
-2’s through 5’s are removed from the deck.
-Flush beats a full house, since they are tougher to make.
-A wheel is A6789
-Everyone ante’s , plus a blind on the button
In some variations, trips beats a straight. We played with a straight still beating trips here. According to Jason, if you play the reverse it can kill a lot of the action… for example you always have to be worried about someone having a set when you have a straight draw, and could be drawing dead already.
This game is ACTION. My first time ever playing Short Deck NL Texas Holdem, and we have all the hole cards! The game took place at the Peppermill in Reno, NV during Run It Up Reno. Jason Somerville, who has a bunch more experience playing this poker game than I do, joins me to help break down the action, give some tips and tricks, and count how much we both won or lost.
Back to full deck next episode. 😎
