Quick announcement - the CLB is limiting me to 3 tables and 24 players due to space reasons. We have 27 on the list already and some local Arizonans also interested who I want to accommodate, so I'm going to leave the list as is for now and we'll see who cancels as we get closer to the event date and if we can get into the waitlist.

I'm working on her to get a 4th table setup - if that happens, we'll open this up a bit more but right now it's 3 tables and 24 people.

***** any AZ locals have a poker table I could borrow for a couple days?

I’m getting a 3rd made but would prefer not to buy a 4th when realistically we’ll only need it for the SOHE tourney for a couple hours on Friday night.

*** HELP ***

I need to borrow a 4th table - preferably a round or smaller oval and not full sized. If you're a local Arizonan and can let me borrow a table from Thursday to Saturday night or Sunday AM in October, that would be amazing and I'd sponsor your buy-in to either the SOHE World Championship or the SCARNEY HU Filpament event.

Could use a topper maybe ? And a fold out plastic table?

Of course a real table would be nicer.

I was about to pop in and say I have a table for six (seven if the players cuddle) but have no way of getting it to Phoenix in my Mini. :oops: Looks like @Max D might have things covered.

If it's still necessary in October, let me know and I'll figure something out to get it up there.

Anybody have links explaining some of these degen circus games?
SOHE: Set a Hold'em hand and an Omaha hand. Call pre and fold when you somehow whiff the flop with six cards.

Scarney: Check-call all the way and for God's sake don't forget to discard. Pot-pot-shove when all your cards are gone, then kick a cat when you realize you're playing the Icelandic variant.

3-2-1 PLO: If you're not in the hand, go back to your Airbnb and take a nap. You've got time.

Scrotum 8: Pot-pot-shove with four to a steel wheel, chop the low with three other players also holding four to a wheel while the idiot who just held a pair of sevens somehow flops quads for the high.

The most common games you’re going to see are:

- Double board 5 card omaha hi
- Dramaha (draw 2 or 3 depending on # of players)
- Scarney
- Big O hi/lo
- SOHE
- Omaha 2 or 5

Almost all the games are variations off those.

Double Board Omaha
Plays high only. You get dealt 5 cards and play standard Omaha except the pot is split between the best Omaha hand on the top board and on the bottom board.

6 card variants are common too, depending on the number of players. You can play with 6 hole cards, 2 6 card boards, or both.

In 6 card board games, the turn is 2 cards.

Dramaha
Plays like Omaha and the 6 card logic above can also apply in variants (eg Route 66 is 6 card board and 6 card hand).

The twist is that you can draw up to 2, 3 or 6 cards after the flop (depending on # of players) and the pot is split between the best Omaha hand (2 cards from your hand and 3 cards on the board) and the best 5 card poker hand you’re holding.

More on the rest tomorrow. There are some books on these games written by a PCFer and available on Amazon. My home game table and splash pots are some of the cover art :)

Search on Dramaha and SOHE by Jim Donahue. Good starting strategy for players new to both games.

If you’re comfortable playing Omaha and enjoy it, these games will take blow your mind. So much fun. So much variance. And remember to stab Mattb.

Games are .25/.50 or .50/.50 blinds and play pot limit. Buyins are $40-125 or half the biggest stack at your table.

One note as this has come up before - if your table breaks you must bring your entire stack to the new table (regardless of whether it’s larger than half the biggest stack). If you voluntarily move to a new table, you must respect the half-the-biggest-stack rule at that table.

1) Put in money
2) Somberly ask “Board hear my prayer”
3) Stab Matt B
4) Maybe you get half

They’ll all some variation of that.


I believe stabbing me is number 4. After showdown. But I could be wrong.
