The PartyPoker Weekly: Introducing Double Hold'em and the WPT Foxwoods Facebook Challenge
As always PartyPoker are jam packed with news, promotions and exclusive offers. Two big WPT promos this week and the birth of a new poker game that could be heaven for action junkies.
Introducing Double Hold’em
New games come and go in poker but not many stick, this one however could be an exception. PartyPoker have introduced a brand new game – Double Hold’em. It’s just like Texas Hold’em except for one major difference. You receive three hole cards, choosing one as 'point' card after the flop is dealt but before the betting round starts.
So let’s say you have AKT – you would probably choose the ace as the point card meaning you have AK and AT. The hand then plays out like hold’em and the strongest hand of your two will be the one that is played on the river. As you can imagine there is lots of action in a game like this as the relative strength of your hands change reapidly as more cards are dealt.
We looking forward to seeing you at the Double Hold’em tables soon!
WPT Amneville Qualifiers
The newest stop on the World Poker Tour will take place in Amneville, France on November 2-6. Qualifiers have now begun and will continue to take place until October 17. You can qualify for as little as $1 right up to the $375 finals on Sundays.
