    My monthly game was only 4 handed last month (lots of cancellations!!) and we were messing around and came up with this...we have started playing pineapple/crazy pineapple and thats what started it.

    Each player get's 5 cards followed by a preflop betting round if you call/bet you have to dump a card. On the flop you bet and dump a card. On the turn you bet and dump a card. Then normal betting on the river. We played no limit and it was quite fun...you start with a TON of draws (obviously) and it is usually a fairly weak hand that was winning (dump a low straight chasing a flush and up with two pair for example).

    Is this a "real" game? We were calling it Atomic Pineapple...

    The key to this game is, draw to the fewest outs possible. In my experiences, not only is it more likely to hit than you'd expect... it's usually a winner as well, no matter how bad it is.

    In before somebody says...

    "I'd 'Double TAP' that!"

    OK, OK, I'll try to add something of value. Here's a blast from the past... Ligarius's Thermonuclear Atomic Pineapple chip set photo shoot:
