Despite how much fun it is to play, somehow Pineapple poker (and its brethren Crazy and Lazy Pineapple) pokdeng online have always been more of a private poker game than a casino poker game. It's been introduced in small events on the European Poker Tour, but then it was removed again. And it’s never been played at the World Series of Poker. If you want to play Pineapple Poker online, you can only play it for play money right now on free poker apps.

The game play of Pineapple follows the rules of Texas Hold’em (check out our Texas Hold’em Rules page for more) but the set-up is slightly different. First, pre-flop:

Every player gets three cards instead of two.
Second, everybody evaluates their hands and discards one of them before the first betting round begins (as usual this begins with the player under the gun).


2 Cards
No 2, but 3 cards
As in a regular Pineapple poker game each player gets three cards at the beginning of the hand. In Crazy Pineapple, though, you keep your first card for the pre-flop betting round and the flop betting round poker online เงิน จริง .

Only before the turn is dealt do you have to get rid of one card. All other rules and betting stipulations are the same as Pineapple.

How to Play Lazy Pineapple
Lazy Pineapple, also known as Tahoe Pineapple, has its name because you don’t have to bother throwing away a card until the action is finished.

Contrary to the other variants you keep all three cards through all the betting rounds. Only when the river is dealt and the last betting round is finished do you have to discard one.

Basically you can also just put that one down and show the other two.

More Pineapple Poker Games
There are more variants to this game which get an honorable mention here but are not considered to be part of the Pineapple family.

In Three-Card Hold’em, you not only get to keep your three cards you can also use all three of them to make your five-card hand.

In Pineapple you can only use one or two (or none, if you play the board) as in Texas Hold’em.

Irish Poker is a variant that transgresses Texas Hold’em and Omaha. Here you get four cards but you have to get rid of two of them after the betting round on the flop.

Just as in Texas Hold’em, Pineapple can be played Fixed Limit, Pot Limit or No Limit w88 line .

Just as in Texas Hold’em there can be 2-10 players from heads-up to full ring.

Pineapple Poker vs. Texas Hold’em
Many Chips
Although Pineapple poker is obviously a close cousin of Texas Hold’em, it’s still not the same.

An important difference to Hold’em is that the third card offers you additional information. It shows you a card that can’t be in any of your opponents’ hands and that can’t appear on the board.

This is not always significant, but it can be. An example:

If you get three cards of the same suit it makes it less likely that you hit a flush on the board as there is now one card missing in the deck to make that flush possible.

Or, if you receive three of a kind – you’re “rolled-up," as they call it in Stud poker – it means that you’ll almost never hit a set as you have to throw one of your cards away so there’s only one card of the same value in the deck.

Keep in mind that as every player gets to choose his two hole cards out of three the quality of hands will generally be higher than in Hold’em.

So if you hit top pair on the flop your hand is significantly weaker than it would be in Hold’em.

Also, if there is a possible flush with three suited cards on the board, chances are higher that somebody has it.
