    Sorry if there is already a thread on this, but the searches only brought up tournaments between players, not the table game.

    I'm interested in playing this after reading the rules here

    My only concern is the high amount of variance that is associated with this game. If I go to the bellagio with $100 in my pocket and play $5 blackjack (last I checked, there was still a single $5 game, next to the big 6 wheel), I can lose many hands in a row but still be in the game. With this game, all it takes is 1 raise and one all in (times 10 ante) to be down to $15.

    I'm curious to hear peoples thoughts on this game, as it looks like a lot of fun but can empty your pockets FAST

    Unfortunately this game is VERY difficult to find anywhere in the nation now. Last time I saw it, I commented to myself, "wow, I can't believe the game is still here". I thought it was Four Winds Buffalo in MI recently, but my memory is probably wrong. I probably should have sat down just to say I played it. lol

    It mostly has been crushed into oblivion by "Ultimate Texas Holdem". According to this thread, nowhere in Vegas has the game. One poster said in that thread said Bellagio got rid of the game. And that post was dated in 2013
