The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly
Submitted by Ozone23 on 2004-04-10
This is a fun variation on Hold'em.
Players are dealt two cards down and one up, three cards are placed in the middle face down (the community).
Round of betting, then the first card in the community is flipped face up. This is 'The Good'. All cards of the same rank are now wild (but The Good card is not shared and may not be used to complete someone's poker hand...it is merely an indicator of the wild card).
Another round of betting, then the middle card in the community is flipped face up. This is 'The Bad'. All cards of the same rank (face up or face down) must be discarded.
Another round of betting, then the final card in the community is flipped face up. This is 'The Ugly'. All players who have an upcard of the same rank must fold.
Another round of betting, then each player is given one more card face down. One last round of betting, then show. High hand wins the pot.
