A new variant on replaypoker

I enjoy playing all variants on replaypoker (holdem,omaha,omaha hi-lo,royal) and I was wondering if there was a way to create a table or tournament which would feature all 4 of them. For example the first hand would be holdem, next omaha hi-lo, then royal, then omaha and so on. The backgrounds would just change so you would know which variant you would be playing. Sometimes in a holdem tournament I get bored because I’m getting card dead, and with this variant (similar to h.o.r.s.e) there could be nonstop action. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.

The issue with that would be some people don’t know how to play Omaha or Royal so it wouldn’t be fair to those players and they’d be at a disadvantage. For example my specialty game is Holdem. I’ve played Omaha a few times but not great at it and I’ve never played Royal before. Interesting idea though.

As long as it doesn’t hurt to create this variant I don’t see the issue. Those who would be at a disadvantage don’t have to participate, it’s simply a variant for those who want some extra flavor to poker.

Very nice idea. I’m also a fan of all the different modes of poker (kudos to replay for inventing royal) and would be cool, but I think the main problem is how to create such a variant. I remember pokerstars had h.o.r.s.e, not sure what type of client they were using. Again I like the idea a lot but don’t know if it’s possible.

Right, still awaiting a reply from a mod here to see if it’s possible.

Hi WebAngel, Sorry I didn’t see this sooner. When I started almost three years ago I was also interested in instituting new types of games. I proudly tell you that I had an idea for MTT leagues and suggested American, European, and Asian monthly tournaments. After a number of months and certainly the help of Happiness, the leagues were started. Like H.O.R.S.E. those leagues were popular in two other sites I had been on so it was a natural for here. I have made other suggestions as well. Your suggestion is a good one and many know the game as being known worldwide. A strong suggestion is to lobby, lobby, lobby. Indeed, you will get further convince us by sending us models to look at or websites to attend. Lobby other players as well. Good Luck. Scratch

Sounds interesting. I enjoy all the variants of the game here. I often play Hi/Lo when the game is Omaha. :slight_smile: My own challenging variant thought is one where all the cards are face up. You would get two cards face up and bet accordingly with everyone seeing your cards. Can’t be any crazier than the re-buy tournaments.

They ever thought about have a multi game tourney ( Hold em-Omaha-Royal ). I think that would be an interesting tourney. Play one for every 15-30 min. then change. Just a thought have a good day."

I second this. Maybe a thing to consider for '17?

Not to change the subject but what the heck do I do with all these tournament points in any game that you play on the site ???

Points are used for standings on the Leaderboard… you can check them by clicking on Promotions in the main lobby. Click on any SNG’s or MMT"s or other promotions on the right to see the standing of players . Points run monthly on the Leaderboard …if you place high enough you win bonus chips . The 1st of each month all players start over again with zero points… hope this helps explain it a little.

Pienso que una buena idea.Además de la acción ( personalmente muy importante en el poker) desarroyariamos las distintas variantes o modalidades.Todas estas variantes tienen un mismo fin que las cinco cartas que manejemos serán las que se valorara con los rivales en vías de que esta sea la mejor mano.Ahora bien si como bien dices a mi parecer le añadimos.que cada 15 o 30 minutos tenemos la oportunidad de desarroyar las distintas modalidades o variantes instintivamente el cerebro se estimularía creando patrones de juego y enriqueciendo de esta forma lo que hasta ahora concebimos de poker.Sinceramente apoyó tu idea.Muchas gracias
