Real Money Crazy Pineapple Poker
If you’re tired of playing Texas Hold’em, and you’re looking for an alternative, why not check out Crazy Pineapple, a type of poker that is becoming quite popular and it’s available in a number of online poker rooms. There is more to do in this game and it’s less boring, so you should definitely give it a try if you simply want something different.
Playing real money Crazy Pineapple is not difficult, so even a beginner can do well with it, if he takes the time to understand the rules. Learning the game doesn’t take a lot of time, but like always, you need to practice for a bit before you become really good at it.
Playing Crazy Pineapple Poker
When you compare the rules of Texas Holdem with Crazy Pineapple, you will notice that the one large difference between them is that in the latter the players get three cards each, instead of two. One of them will be discarded though, after the flop.
Just like in Texas Holdem, all the cards that are dealt are offered with their face down. After the regular betting round, the dealer deals the flop, and a new betting round follows. Next, a hole card will be discarded by each player.
As for the betting rounds, they are just like those from regular Texas Holdem Limit. Crazy Pineapple has four different rounds of betting, the Pre-Flop, the Flop, the Turn and then the River. During the Turn and during the River, the bets are doubled (Big Bet). There is a limit of three raises, so each player can make four bets before the pot is capped.
Just like with Holdem, each player can show his hand once the final bet is made. The player that gets the best hand of five cards, wins the game.
The main difference between Crazy Pineapple and Holdem, the three initial hole cards, make for a much more interesting game, with better hands being formed by the players. There are more flushes and straights in a game of Crazy Pineapple than they are in Texas Holdem.
Most of the time, these games are played in limit mode, but sometimes they also play as no limit, or pot limit.
It’s one of the types of poker that can be real fun to play, but practice is required in order to be good at it, so make sure you don’t have too much fun and lose all your money.
Real Money Crazy Pineapple Strategy
Real money Crazy Pineapple can be a very good idea, especially if you learn the game well. Because the hands are better than they are in Holdem, people tend to overestimate their value, and they stick with it for a longer time, at least until the flop is dealt. When there are eight Crazy Pineapple players at the table, and they all go farther than they would in a game of Holdem, the money tends to accumulate, so you win quite a bit of money when you know what you’re doing.
