Two or None, Low Ball
10/12/2008 12:16:41 AM
Poker, I hate it!

We all have our vices.  After 12 years in the Military, two in the Architectural Engineering field, two in the USDA Forest Service and a career as an Alaska Fish and Wildlife Trooper, that's Game Warden in Lower 48 speak, I had collected my vices from a wide variety of experience.

I loved to play Poker.  The Five Card Stud and variants were entertaining but none were like the game of Two or None.

A table of players are dealt four cards.  The "bug" was included in the deck.  The object of the game is to have the lowest hand of all players.  The lowest hand is the bug an ace and duce and three.  Zero, one, two, three, unlikely but not impossible.

To "improve your hand your only option was to draw two cards, hence the name Two or None.  To stand with what you have you opt for none.  Now is when it gets interesting.  If you opt to draw you are automatically "in' and have opted to cover the pot if you loose.

To assure no one can "buy" the pot all get two chances to call the proclaimed winner.  If only one wishes to challenge the pot, he wins.  If two or more wish to play the, looser matches the pot and it grows.  On one game of two or none I was able to win enough to pay cash for a Weatherby .340 Magnum.

Two or None Low Ball.  The sport of Kings.
