Prop bets are often made on the colour and the cards that appear on the flop. Bets with folded hands are also common.

There is a seven-deuce game. Any player who wins a pot and shows 7-2 wins $0.50 from each of the other players who were dealt a hand.

Live straddles are in play in which the player after the blind has the option to place a "blind bet" at a minimum of double the big blind but have the "live" option to check or bet when the option returns to them.

Colossus and Dirty Sanchez are two toy characters which act as chip protectors.

The blind structure appears to be relatively small, but the game isn't.

Largest take in one session = +$595 ($100 buy-in) - Upper Case E. 2010-05-25.
