Hi guys, there's a new game out in my local casino called discard inferno. I was wondering if any1 knows the HE or EOR of that game? Also, some BS would be great as well

But if you don't post the rules, no one is going to be able to analyze it.

From the website:

The object of Discard InfernoSM is to make a better five card poker hand than the dealer.

Getting Started

Make equal bets on the Ante and Blind to receive cards. You may also make a bet on the optional Aces Up wager. You will then receive six cards.

You then have a choice:

Make a bet 1X or 2X your Ante on the Play bet, or 3X the Ante if you have three-of-a-kind or better
Fold and the dealer will remove your Ante and Blind wagers, and tuck your cards under the Aces Up (if played) wager.
The dealer will then take action on their hand:

If the upcard is 8 or lower, the dealer will not discard any cards
If the upcard is 9 or higher, the dealer will remove it from play and turn the next card face up
This continues until the dealer has only one card face down or has an upcard of 8 or lower
The dealer then turns over their cards and make the best possible five card poker hand. Straights, flushes, and straight flushes require a minimum of five cards. The dealer works counter-clockwise to reconcile the live hands.

Winning and Losing

The dealer always qualifies:

Beat the dealer and your Ante and Play bets win even money. The blind pays if your winning hand is at least a three-of-a-kind or better. If you beat the dealer with less than a three-of-a-kind, the blind will push
Lose to the dealer and your Ante, Blind, and Play bets lose
The Ante, Blind and Play bets push if you tie the dealer (must be a five card tie only)
Aces Up

The Aces Up side bet will win if the player has a pair of Aces or better. The bet pays regardless of the dealerís hand and if the player folds.

So much for easy to understand from the start. Not to bash anyone's work but sounds too complicated if you believe the best games are basic and simple.

Agreed, I had to play a few games to get the gist of it and it's still hard to grasp everything. I'll bet that I am.playing this game at around a 6% HE

Total SWAG strategy.

You get 6 cards, choosing best 5.

I would bet 3x whenever you have a qualifying hand (3oak or better)

You can see whether the dealer will have 6 cards or less by the upcard. If the dealer plays with less than 6, I would bet 2x on pair 9s or better (because they've thrown away at least one card 9 or higher), 1x on j-high or better, fold a lower hand.

If dealer has an 8 or lower, I would want pair kings+ace kicker or better for 2x, any lower pair or A high 1x, fold k-high or less.

Saw this game live for the first time in Vancouver recently...asked the pit and they said not a ton of players and they were losing on it (which really meant the hold wasn't quite where they wanted it to be)...the game is a bit of an odd one. There were two players seeming to be having a fairly good time and would explain it to anyone that approached, that looked like decent play to me in my short window of observation.

The casino also has SG's Fast Action Hold'em which is a Galaxy "Texas Shootout" clone, in fact the pit said "I don't know why they changed the name of this game from the old "Texas Shootout" :-p...that table was full and had a sign indicating a waiting list was available.

My brain isn't working today. I don't understand the bolded sentences above. Does the dealer deal himself 6 cards, with one card turned face up? If the upcard is a 9 or higher, it is discarded from play - I get it. But does Dealer continue to deal himself a total of six-cards? And what "continues" with the next cards -does he discard every card that he turns over and that is higher than 8 until he turns over a card that 8 or lower?

Can dealer wind up playing only 4 cards? or 3 or 2cards? And then have to make a "5-card poker hand" with less than 5 cards?
