    Mr. Meaner shared a game with us at the Lone Star Roundup during a dealer's choice cash game that was new to everybody but him. It was standard Omaha high played with two flops and a shared turn and river card. It was lots of fun and very confusing. Has anybody ever played it? Meaner said that he'd seen it played as hi-lo before, but that it was nearly impossible to score when played that way.

    I played double-flop Omaha (High) at Harrah's Poker Room in Las Vegas, but that game was played with two full boards where each flop had its own turn and river cards. Similar, but not exactly the same. At a 8-player-max table there's no need for the turn and river cards to be community cards.
