Pokerdom is one of the newest players to the online poker scene, focusing mainly on the Russian market, but offers games to players from all over the world. The site has experienced some decent success in its first years and has been growing steadily since its opening.
Now the site has announced that they are going along with the latest craze in online poker and integrate Pineapple Open Face Chinese poker. The integration is happening in partnership with their software provider Connective Games, who most will know from having been the provider for several small and now closed poker networks.
Pineapple OFC has become very popular amongst poker players in recent years, because it is nothing like the common variants such as Omaha and Texas Hold’em. Instead players plays for points instead of having betting rounds, which determines who wins money and who loses.
The players gets 13 cards each, which they have to place with three cards on the top (best hand), five cards in the middle (second best hand) and then finally five cards in the bottom which is the best worst hand you can make. Depending on what you put down, you get points and thus win money from your opponent.
