I saw this game for the first time Saturday at Bally's Atlantic City. You get dealt four cards and then you can choose to double your bet before reciving the fifth card. You get paid for a pair of sixes or better and there is no draw. Has anyone seen this game before, and I must admit I was tired and had a few cocktails so i do not remember the payout figures except I think the sixes or higher were 1 to 1 and the lower payouts seem to be in line with a JoB game.

This game used to be the TCP of its generation... in fact, it was one of the first poker-based table games. Low hands per hour and the potential for huge table payouts made the casinos take the game out. Each player would get one card, three community cards would be exposed, and the option to double was based on the fifth community card. With 4 up, the possibility of a community 4-of-a-kind could happen. Obviously, it was still a house game, but it's lower HE than other games was the demise.

Intuitively I figured this would be a tough game to win at. Just Playing JoB VP I think the best hand I have been dealt in the last year right off the bat has been a full house, and that happened maybe twice all year. Of course i am the same guy who has played VP fairly regularly for the last five years(I just got into somewhat late in my gambling carear) and have not even hit a straight flush let alone a royal on JoB.

Double Down Stud was in Foxwoods in the mid 90's... its been around a while. Royals are VERY difficult w/o a draw. You DO need to memorize that payout schedule, its a nasty, sneaky slope. FW in the 90's was rather generous (for VP anyway) at about 98.5%.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.
