what are these ?My favorites are SOHE and PLO-8. But for a tournament I don't like split pot games.
My next tournament, we are doing mixed hold 'em games, trying to get better hands each game/round, but using a standard flop, turn, river each game.

We enjoy Dakota: Seven card stud, ace-five high-low split with declare, low hole wild, option to buy the river up, roll your own all day long.In 3 weeks I'm looking at a 7 card stud mix, which will get a bit crazy as these guys like their wild cards. I'll have to include Dr Pepper, chase the lady, (4s,whores and 1-eyed jacks), along with straight Stud, Razz, Hi/Lo, Chicago. Probably even throw in Roll your Own and No Peek, Be more gambol less poker, but still fun.
I'm not sure I understood all of that. Please explain/define...We enjoy Dakota: Seven card stud, ace-five high-low split with declare, low hole wild, option to buy the river up, roll your own all day long.
As a house rule, if the dealer calls it exactly as written above (instead of just calling "Dakota") then he gets his ante back.
Good or bad, I think I understood it all.I'm not sure I understood all of that. Please explain/define...
I'm pretty sure I get "low hole wild", but does that apply to just the lowest card including suit rank, or if 2+ players hold a deuce, they're all wild?
- "with declare"
- "buy the river up"
- "roll your own"
- "all day long"
This one is disturbing and dangerous. The only experience I have playing it was as part of a SOHE type game. I played it at @MaxB ‘s game, and I don’t remember what the other game was - may have been Omaha, may have been Holdem; I’m just not sure. It was tolerable because it was part of a split pot game and because there didn’t seem to be any terrible players at the table.Super Hold'em: Deal each player three hole cards; keep all three the entire hand; may use all three hole cards to make a hand.
I now know what they call you "Crazy", Eddie.That's it!
FWIW, "Roll your own" usually means deal the first three hole cards down and choose which one will be up. "Roll your own all day long" means every street is dealt down, and you choose which of your current face-down cards to turn up and be that street's upcard (as you described). Some people don't make that distinction, though.
Also (for Zombie), "low hole wild" means each person's lowest face-down card is wild, as are all matching cards, for them only. So everyone starts with a guaranteed wild card (because everyone has a lowest hole card) and might have more if they have additional cards matching that rank whether face-up or face-down (so suits don't matter when determining lowest card - if you have three fours with at least one of them down and no deuces or treys down, then all your fours are wild, as would be the last four if you get dealt it on later streets). So everyone has at least one wild card, but might have more, including their upcards, but you can't tell which of someone else's upcards might be wild because you can't see their downcards.
When you play low hole wild, it's common but not universal to also play with the option to buy the river up, so that as Natskule said you can avoid the risk that getting dealt a trey on the river will ruin your three fours that used to be wild. But it costs you to buy that insurance, usually an amount equal to one river bet (i.e. a Big Bet in fixed limit) that's paid directly to the pot and is not matched by other players during the betting.
(Edit: Woops, I called it wrong above; I left out "low hole wild for high". Wild cards usually don't count for low when playing high-low split, but it's best to make it explicit when you call the game.)
Throw all these options together and you get a number of interesting tactical decisions during the hand, including opportunities for reading and bluffing with people's choice of which cards to roll.
