Come on Wiz, you know you want to program this and analyze it. ;)

Can you briefly describe the rules. Are the players making 6 card poker hands (including such as 3 pairs?) or are they making best 5 card poker hands from 6 dealt cards?
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

videopoker.com has the Six Card Draw there, and there is already a page on the Wizard's web site: https://wizardofodds.com/games/video-poker/tables/super-draw-6-poker/

The Jackpot Gents on YouTube have been playing this game for some time, because Steve Bourie finds it entertaining, although their results don't show it. It is a very polarizing topic for the viewership, along with the people that want or don't want them to play deuces.

The six card poker strategy has been posted by someone who goes with various combinations including the word "Pax", here:
9/5 DDB: https://www.videopoker.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8551
8/6 BPD: https://thejackpotgents.com/video-poker-strategy-charts/strategy-chart-9-5-double-double-bonus-poker/
They claim to also have a strategy for Deuces, although it is extraordinarily complicated, if you watch their live streams at times the commenters will goad them into playing it, with live correction if Pax is on the chat.

I would never play this game, mostly because I don't play games I don't understand, and second because of the extra bonus bet. But, if you can master a strategy, like Ultimate X you get more benefit than just someone playing with regular strategy, and compared to someone just guessing.

Calwatch pretty much nailed what I was referring to. I'm kind of enamored with the game and looking at the paytables from Wiz it does look like a favorable game for anyone that likes VP.
