Anyone played/seen this elsewhere? Would love to get any more info.

Have had some KILLER sessions, and some not so good as with most carny games.

I like this game, kind of. It's like THB but instead of being able to check it forces the player to make a bet every single call, probably because most players will fold more often when they shouldn't. Also, with no "blind" bet (like UTH) this is why they pay the ante even more rare than a "qualifying" hand. It's interesting to see the differences and how that more/less balances the math out.

To me the toughest best to analyze would be the flop bet. Say it's Q-J-2 and you have 10-5... I'd think for basic strategy it would come down to outs as gordon referenced. You should pretty much always see the flop cards, always bet when you have a pair, and 2x if you have mid pair or better on the board when you can. This is a rough off the top from poker and other similar games I've played. I'd like to do more analysis of this game and find places to play it =).
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Played a couple of short sessions in Reno completely eschewing the bonus bets and flat betting $5. It's not bad, I think I prefer UTH, though.

WRT dealer trips, I pretty much hate betting on the dealer's hand in any game, but I can see it being attractive in this context because you get so many boards containing made hands.

Is this at Atlantis? I think they have tried a few AGS games...recall seeing Two Card Poker last summer.

According to those rules, your Texas Hold-em hand can't win unless it is a Full House or Higher. My initial impression is that this is a very unattractive game.
