D’s Game

Played in D’s free-wheeling dealer’s choice game again. Didn’t lose my shirt tonight but I only made it most of the way back to even after taking a break when my first set of chips ran out after three hours.

Not having a lot of knowledge of oddball games, I came prepared this time with a copy of The Complete Handbook of Saturday Night Poker that I picked up used (but unused) for a couple of bucks. One of the authors was Phil Foglio, the cartoonist for the old Dungeons & Dragons magazine. I’d run across a reference to it before the first time I played at D’s and we resurrected Council Bluffs, an Omaha variant I’d brought to my first outing there. We also tried out  out Pravda and Bob Dole, both five card stud mods.
