    I hosted a tourney with a $.05-$.10 cash game afterward, thinking only a few would stay like normal, but 10 of the 11 stayed, which changed our choices for dealer's choice, which was fun. It also added bigger draw pool for THE DRAWING GAME:
    Five card draw, ante, round of betting, then everyone just announces their draw, and people who need the same number of cards trade, until nobody can trade anymore, which is usually two or three people just exchanging the same 3 cards back and forth for 30 seconds at the end, then a round of betting.

    Here's a video of some of the action; nobody realized we were being filmed.
    Enjoy! Gabe

    Funny you should ask. They are Modianos, and they got quite a beating, but they all seem to be just fine.

    I went to check out the video but it only took me to a page describing the game....with this sentence: "Check out the video Jared took during the game:"

    Below it was the house rules text box and a link to the house rules?

    Did you change this around recently???

    Re: Here's the link!

    that was exactly what I thought it would look like!! Thanks for sharing!

    Hey this reminds me of another game that we played when I was a kid and it was played in a similar fashion. The cards had like bears, and grains, and I remember a bell that someone would ring....anybody remember the name of it??
