Doesn't seem like there is much posting on this board Anywho, the other night one of my friends mentioned a new game to play and it turned out to be awesome fun. It's called Time Bomb Holdem and heres how it works: At the start of the game (basically when everyone in the group agrees to the game) everyone puts one big blind into a jackpot off to the side of the table. Then, one joker is added to the deck. The joker functions like a normal 7 card, and is treated like a 7 on the board as well. Heres the catch: If you win the pot with the joker in your hand, you win the jackpot. However, if you lose the hand with the joker, you add a big blind to the existing jackpot. Even if you just fold a hand preflop containing the joker you must add a big blind. (this requires some honesty by players, I caught my friend throwing his hand away without paying his BB ) When someone wins the jackpot with the joker, everyone contributes another BB to the new jackpot and the game resumes Obviously this creates some really cool bluffing scenarios. When the jackpot gets huge, everyone assumes that big raises are an attempt to win the pot with a joker. Heres some tips: -Pocket 7's and other draws become 'lucky' as you have an extra out to hit with the joker in the deck. -The best hand you can have with the joker is A7, so you have to pick your spots carefully. Anyway, any suggestions are welcome and feel free to try the game out!
