Two cards (hole cards) are dealt face down to each player and then five community cards are placed face-up by the dealer—a series of three (“the flop”) then an additional single card (“the turn” or “fourth”) and another additional card (“the river” or “fifth street”). Players have the option to check, bet, raise or fold after each deal; i.e., betting may occur prior to the flop, “on the flop”, “on the turn”, and “on the river”.
Omaha poker is an exciting game derived from Texas Hold’em. Each player is dealt four private cards (‘hole cards’) which belong only to that player. Five community cards are dealt face-up on the ‘board’. In Omaha games, all players use exactly three of the community cards together with exactly two of their hole cards to make the best five-card poker hand. No more, and no less.
What makes Pineapple different from regular Holdem is that you’re dealt three hole cards instead of two. Then, before the flop, you must discard one of the cards and play with only the other two the rest of the game. As in Holdem, by the end of the game, you can use any five-card combination of your two hole cards and the five community cards on the board to make the best hand.
What makes Crazy Pineapple different, also, is that you’re dealt three hole cards instead of two. But in contrast to regular Pineapple, in Crazy Pineapple, you must discard one of your cards after the flop, and then play with your other two for the remainder of the game. Of course, this can get rather crazy because having seen the flop, players can create some strong hands by the time they toss their weakest card.
