    Which one's gabe?

    This game is dumb. Aces are also fives, and flushes beat full houses? Who makes this shit up? And then some twat (tell me that was gabe) calls a gutshot and hits? Then Ivy limps kings? How are these guys so fucking rich?

    I hope gabe won.

    It's a game of smaller edges if I'm understanding it correctly (but I am not claiming to understand it).

    Aces count as 5's for a 9-high straight, yeah. It's a weird rule.
    Flushes beat full houses because it's harder to get a flush and easier to get pair-type hands when using this deck. Three of a kind also beats a straight because it's much easier to get a straight from this deck.
    In a 52 card deck, if you have OESD on the turn, you have 8 outs from a deck of 46 for 17.4%. In the short deck, you have 8 outs from a deck of 30 for 26.7%.

    It was a little hard to make sense of it. I don't know any of the drawing probabilities and it's hard for me to see when someone is drawing dead due to this being the first time I've seen this game played.

    I wasn't paying 100% attention, but I think gabe lost a bit and then leaves the table to have Tom Dwan take his seat.

    Fuck me dead, I didn't even know we weren't using a 52 card deck.

    Yeah, I'll leave that game to the likes of Ivy, Dwan and gabe.

    Short deck hold'em or 6+ hold'em takes a standard deck and removes all the 2's - 5's. It's becoming more and more popular at the nose-bleed stakes. I suspect because it's a game that invites more gambling preflop because edges are smaller. Kinda like when PLO was gaining steam a decade or so ago. Except that short deck hold'em seems more inviting to someone who doesn't know the rules. "It's the same as regular hold'em, but the 2's - 5's are removed" is a deceptively simply explanation of the rules.

    Personally, it would make a bit more sense to remove the TJQK and then the deck is Aces through 9's. Then Aces are the top pair, but can also be used as a 1 for a 5-high straight. It makes more sense than A6789 being a straight.
    I get that face cards are prettier than pip cards, though, and I guess that's the whole reason behind removal.

    But picture cards are prettier!

    I like it. I hope poker sites adopt more games. I was never a huge Omaha fan. I think HE already has enough variance, but figuring out badugi is a lot of fun (slight irony), and variations of HE would be really neat because it's probably easier to convince your average player to try it and at least initially edges would be higher.

    Badugi is a fun game. I never played it for actual money, though, so what I know of it was that it was a bluff-madness game. I'm sure it's less spew-tastic when there's actual money on the line.

    lolololol

    nope

    I actually like 5-draw more, but probably just because I'm better at it. They both reward super aggressive play, but they lack the depth of HE - at least as far as I can tell. I imagine they become rather flat once you figure them out.

    I really like badugi, and the games were pretty soft on stars when I was playing.
