No, there are a finite number of cards available for draw. Once they're exhausted, the game ends and the hands are compared. If you don't have 5 cards, your best hand from the 4 or fewer cards is used.

Collusion via blocking is very possible though.

No fish are going to show up at this game. Right now, it looks like a table to sit at and have drinks. If two people are sitting down, nobody is going to come over, just as a nobody is going to pull up to a high bar table that two people he doesn't know are sitting at. They really whiffed on physical design as far as I'm concerned.

Seriously, if you tried to sit at this game when two people you don't know are there, I'd be surprised if they didn't look at you funny and ask what you're doing.



Are you sure there are a finite number of cards to be drawn ? just asking. I know only a certain number of cards ( no idea how many ) are drawn after a hand is made, In video I think the hands are 3 card poker hands ? If there is a finite number, how is it decided ? Same for 2, 3 or 4 players. I fing contradictory facts all over the net. Anybody Reall know >>>

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Agree. Why would I want to play against my friends -- we could invent a similar game at home with no rake. Then again, I may not want to play 'against' my friends, but I would want to play 'with' my friends. Also, why would I want to play 'against' strangers? If you cannot recognize the fish...

The thing about table games is it's you vs casino, no?



I agree. I can play games with / against my friends without a rake and enjoy it more.

I think you need to pick a day and approximate time for some dinner and then see who's up for checking it out after. I will contact a few people once I have the day and time for dinner. I'm sure I can get a few unless this is a busy weekend for everyone.

I don't know why others would overall. But as for my interest in this goes, I want to see if there is more of an opportunity than some are indicating.

The interview shows that Caesar's plans to carve out segments of the casino for "the casino of the future" to attract groups of millennials...

The 70's(perhaps the late 60's) called and they want their style back.

Collusion is huge. A team playing against others can claim a card they don't need in their lesser hand that would fill a non teamers hand. Maybe dealing the first card face down can combat some of this, as it would keep your competition from seeing what you're waiting for. Example from the video of person getting 3oak on the last card; someone else can grab that card, leaving the straight as the best hand.



I think this is an exciting game. However, my biggest concern I have for this game is collusion. Furthermore, during the course of playing/competing, the excitement can create resentment & distrust which could turn into hatred human behavior. And one player could scarified his/her impossible to win hand (or simply just doesn't care about his/her bet) to make every effort to stop another player from winning for whatever hatred reason...
