Pineapple Poker

Pineapple Poker

If you like the idea of playing Holdem with a twist, Pineapple or Crazy Pineapple Poker may be your game of choice! Only available at a few online casinos, Pineapple is a fun way to give your game a little spice and keep you alert. Pineapple and Crazy Pineapple are nearly identical to regular Holdem, save for the alterations listed below. Pineapple still uses a Flop/Turn/River structure. The blinds are the same. The betting is the same. You can raise, call, check or fold each round. If you’re familiar with Holdem, you’ll pick right up on Pineapple… and will enjoy these different twists:


What makes Pineapple different from regular Holdem is that you’re dealt three hole cards instead of two. Then, before the flop, you must discard one of the cards and play with only the other two the rest of the game. As in Holdem, by the end of the game, you can use any five-card combination of your two hole cards and the five community cards on the board to make the best hand.

Crazy Pineapple

What makes Crazy Pineapple different, also, is that you’re dealt three hole cards instead of two. But in contrast to regular Pineapple, in Crazy Pineapple, you must discard one of your cards after the flop, and then play with your other two for the remainder of the game. Of course, this can get rather crazy because having seen the flop, players can create some strong hands by the time they toss their weakest card.
