MAD Poker

The Randomonium Games!

All directors have express permission to run a Randomonium Game during any regularly scheduled game.  Randomonium game runs up until the break only.  After the break, regular Texas Hold'em game play begins.

Director has the option to offer prizes during the Randomonium games, but it is not required. 

Some popular Randomonium games include:

Crazy Pineapple

Crazy Pineapple - Crazy Pineapple is just like Pineapple with three hole cards being dealt. The only difference between the two is that the extra card is discarded after the flop.

River of Blood

River of Blood - This version of Hold'em can get wild. In River of Blood, if the river card is red play continues, meaning there is another betting round and a sixth community card is dealt. Another betting round takes place followed by a showdown, that is, as long as the 2nd river card is not also red. Play continues until the river card is black.

Deuces Wild

All deuces in the deck are wild.

Joker Poker

A joker is inserted into a standard deck, and is wild for any card

Suicide King & Bed Knob Queen Wilds

The King of Hearts and Queen of Spades are wild for any card.


Omaha is similar to Texas Hold'em. The difference is that the hands in Omaha are usually much better, since you get to choose from 9 cards total.
Hole Cards. Each player is dealt four cards face down.
The Flop. Three cards are dealt face up on the table.
The Turn. A fourth card is dealt to the table.
The River. Finally, a fifth card is dealt to the table. The five cards on the table are community cards. Your hand is formed by taking exactly two hole cards and exactly three community cards, and forming the best poker hand possible. But remember, all the players have access to the community cards. When played for money, there is a round of betting after a round of cards is dealt (so four rounds of betting in total).

Please ask your director about games if you are unfamiliar.  As much heads-up warning will be given if a Randomonium game is scheduled to be played on a certain night.  Please consult the internet for game rules for each game you're unfamiliar with if you wish!
