BOMB POT

for one random hand, everyone agrees to put in some fixed amount pre. eg. 1/3 NL, everyone puts in $20 pre. Once the flop is dealt, play as normal.

rock - no, not a tight player, but a mandatory straddle by the winner of the previous pot. eg. 2/5 PLO w/ rock

Dramaha (aka drawmaha) - 6-max split-pot mix-game of 5C draw and 5C omaha (Big O). Plays like a normal community game except on the flop where live players draw cards after betting is complete. At showdown, 1/2 pot goes to best Omaha hand, 1/2 pot to best hand in the hole.

Sviten (aka Sviten Special) - a variant of Dramaha. On the flop draw, any player that only draws 1 card is dealt that card face up. They can accept it otherwise they are dealt a card face down.

Archie - possibly invented in Phoenix AZ and named after a player who lost a lot of money playing the game. 6-max TD H/L split, 99 high qual, 8 low qual (Kansas City rules, ie. A-5. Thus low can scoop, and if no qualifying hands, pot is split.

Of course in Australia, you're unlikely to see anything other than NLH, LH or PLO played for cash.

I reckon in 10 years I'll still be learning new terms.

Greek Holdem - regular holdem but you must play both hole cards

Why Greek? I don't know.
I keep seeing club on and only found out it means : A raise from a late position with a weak hand when all other players have folded, with the intention of winning the blinds and antes.

Its used as a derogatory term in wsop online to highlight donkey bets or at least bets that beat the best hand on the river.

Hopefully this is your 11 year recall
