Three Card Badugi
Ollie rivered quad jacks while playing Omaha high, which gave him a strangle-hold on the High Hand Jackpot. He didn't seem too confident however, because he's the only one of us not to have won it. Unfortunately, his streak continued when Glass Man hit a straight flush later in the evening to take it down.
Bobby Dee was the big winner in this $20 buy-in, dealer's choice limit game, cashing out a little north of $50. Gentleman Jim profited a little shy of $20, with Ray-Ray getting beat up to the tune of $35. I finished with a small $7 win on the night.
Ray-Ray introduced a new twist to an old game a few weeks ago, and it looks like it's going to be a hit with the group. I started dealing Badugi a few months ago, mainly just to hear the bitchin' and moanin' from the old codgers! Ray-Ray's twist was eliminating one card and calling it "3 Card Badugi." It's a lot easier to complete a decent Badugi hand with one less card, which makes the pots bigger. I'm pretty sure it will continue to be part of the rotation. If it becomes a WSOP event you heard it here first!
Till next time, win the flips.
