seems pretty obvious that phil and tom either: (a) were hired to promote this game for a macau casino that wants to start spreading it; or (b) are trying to get this game going and encourage high rollers to come play with them in the game. i would bet on the former.

either way, it looks like the structure of the game is simply NLHE with the 2s through 5s removed where the ace still plays high or low (meaning you can have a straight with A6789). not sure how interested i am, but i would give it a go at least once or twice.

I was reading about it on www.holdem36.com. Aside from what you said:
  • Flush beats Full House
  • 3 of a kind beats a straight
  • There is no community river but rather each person is dealt a river card face down
I'd play.

saw the holdem36 site as well, but couldn't tell from the video if six-plus is the same in every respect and didn't see six-plus rules given in my really brief googling.
