Hold Em Hi-Lo = Crazy Pineapple

Are you sick to death of getting fleeced by your poker posse at the weekly Hold Em home game? Next time, throw those chip ruffling ne'er do wells off balance by adding the Crazy Pineapple wrinkle.

Crazy Pineapple (aka Tahoe Hold Em,) is a version of Hold Em which rewards both the high and low hands... a Hi-Lo Hold Em. Players are dealt three cards (one more than Hold Em, one less than Omaha) only two of which can be used in the final hand. The third card must be physically discarded after the flop, thereby committing your hand before the turn and river are dealt. Some variations say that you can keep the third card until the end, but can only use two to make your hand, a la Omaha. The pot is split between high and low hands.

Harvey's Lake Tahoe has an annual Crazy Pineapple World Championship every year, which was won this year by Tom Christopher from Las Vegas, NV. He took away $3,124 in cash and a Dole Pineapple for his efforts.
