    We always start off with a Texas Hold'em Tourney

    then we play two other tournaments. We pick a game from the following pool:

    Seven Card Stud
    Five Card Draw
    Omaha
    Pineapple
    Crazy Pineapple
    Super Hold'em
    Double Flop Hold'em
    :)
    We don't play any low-ball games, the group I play with isn't in to them.
    I am going to try and get them to play Razz next month though.

    Just kidding...
    We play typically
    NLHE
    Omaha Hi
    crazy Pineapple
    7 Stud (uggh)
    5 Draw

    I like to play Omaha, NLHE and Pineapple the most.

    i'd like to get Razz in the mix, I've been playing it for a while (a year is a while to me) online, I got into it because I read that so many people hated it. Figured it would be one to get into, since the typical player wouldn't be as schooled in it.

    Can you describe the last two? I have an idea for the double flop, but do you run the turn and river twice also?

    most of my home games have boiled down to O8 and hold-em.

    We play a NLHE tourney first, usually lasts about 2 hours (6-8 people), then we play either another NLHE tourney with a higher buy-in than the first tourney, or play some Omaha.

    We play Double flop the same as Hold'em except

    Top Flop = (Card #1) (Card #2) (Card #3)
    then NO Burn and
    Bottom Flop (Card #1a) (Card #2a) (Card #3a)

    round of betting
    Burn 1 card then
    Top Turn Card
    Bottom Turn Card

    round of betting
    Burn 1 card then
    Top River Card
    Bottom River Card

    We call each board either Top or Bottom (from the dealers perspective)
    Each player makes his best hand for each board at the showdown.
    There are a lot of split pots, and a quartered one here and there.

    As for Super Hold'em:

    Exactly the same as Hold'em but you are dealt three hole cards, no stipulations on how to play them (use all or none or anything in between)

    Normally just hold'em, sometimes with a blackjack tourney thrown in between two hold'em tournaments.
    Once in a while we have a "player of the night" tournament where we play pot limit O8, followed by a blackjack tourney, followed by hold'em. You get points based on your finish in each event weighted so that the blackjack is worth the least and the hold'em the most. Player with the most points is crowned player of the night and wins some money set aside from the buy-ins.

    We mostly play NL hold 'em cash games, sometimes a NL tourney and sometimes dealer's choice or HORSE rounds.

    I have my once a month NLHE tourney.

    I always have a .25/.50 pot limit cash game afterwards.

    We play dealer(s) choice. HE, OMAHA, HI/LOW OMAHA, STUD, STUD HI/LOW, RAZZ, LOWBALL, BOX, 7 CARD NO PEAK, 5 CARD FU_KED, 5 DRAW, ect. Dealer can also call NL at any time. POTS get out of control sometimes. GREAT TIMES!!!

    What's Super Hold Em?

    My group usually plays dealers choice. Lately we have been playing the following games:

    1) Hold Em
    2) Omaha Hi/Lo
    3) Omaha Hi/Lo with an exchange (everyone get's 3 cards and you can ditch 1 to get 2 or just get 1)
    4) 3-Card Hold Em (is this Crazy Pineapple?)
    5) Pineapple
    6) Dan's Omaha Hi/Lo (everyone gets 5 cards and you must use 3 in the hand and 2 on the board)

    For Hi/Lo games, dealer specifices whether there's no qualifier or an 8 qualifier.

    Super Hold'em is three hole cards (play any, all or none)

    Crazy Pineapple is just like Pineapple but you discard one card after the flop, (Pineapple is before the flop, in Tahoe you keep the third card but you can't use all three of your hole cards (must use 0, 1 or 2)

    My usual home game is real cheap and more for social purposes than money-making purposes. And the group of people playing are there to have fun more than anything. So we play a wide variety of games.

    5 card draw (with or without wilds)
    7 card stud (w/ versions like "The queen and what follows and Low Chicago)
    Hold em
    Omaha
    Anaconda / Pass the Trash
    Cincinnati / Lamebrain Pete / Criss Cross (all games with community cards)
    Midnight Baseball (barely even poker - but builds some big pots)

    - and after viewing The Cincinnati Kid, the occasional game of 5 card stud.

    Mostly cash no limit hold'em (2-5) with a no limit tourney once a month ($100 buy-in).

    I have another smaller group of 6 that plays 10-20.

    Before I started playing Texas Hold'em, I played a fair bit of (hi) Chicago. Recently some of my group have complained about being bored of hold'em, so I'm thinking of playing a Chicago cash game after our hold'em tournament tomorrow night.

    Wow! I haven't been a CTer long, but I'm scared by how easy it was to read those acronyms and actually know what they meant (read them in words the first time through).

    So would "limit high chicago" be L7HC?

    Personally, I would use L7CSHC or L7CS-HC. Damn, I think that's pretty close to my license plate number. :)

    Usually, for 7 card stud I just say 7CS but in deference to Jambine, I put L7CS as he play PL7CS which is the only person I know to have played that game.
