Double Texas Holdem
Double Hold’em™ has arrived at PartyPoker! Double Hold’em™ was created by US company TableBrain Corp. and is online Texas Hold’em with a unique twist!
The casino en ligne francais players start their hands with three hole cards instead of two. Then, after the flop, they nominate one card to be the ‘point card’. This card plays alongside the other two cards, making two separate 2-card Hold’em hands. The player then automatically plays both through the river, finishing with whichever is the strongest! PartyPoker.com is offering Double Hold’em™ live – real money and play money options are available.
A spokesman for PartyPoker.com said: “We’re extremely excited to be offering Double Hold’em™ in Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit formats, and it’s live in right now in the cash game lobby. PartyPoker.com is the only place where you can play Double Hold’em online ”
- Mark Gross, co-creator of Double Hold’em and CEO of TableBrain said: “Double Hold’em™ is a new form of poker set to change the game as you know it. It’s quickly learned, has the ease-of-play of regular Hold’em and has great action. With more playable hands, Double Hold’em appeals to casual players and experts alike. As with every great new game, players are developing and growing their game strategies, so the earlier you start playing, the more of an edge you’ll have!.”
