Many people consider Pineapple Poker or “Crazy Pineapple” a variation of the ever-so-popular Texas Holdem. In this respect, if you intend to play this game, make sure you know all the ins and outs of Texas Hold’em and a thing or two about Omaha.

As is the case with most community-card poker variants, there are no antes or Bring-ins in Pineapple. The players to the left of the dealer button post the big and the small blinds.
This is where the good stuff begins. Instead of the two hole cards players are dealt in Texas Holdem, Pineapple-guys get 3 such cards. This is followed by the first round of betting. The flop (similar to what you know from Texas Holdem) is followed by another betting round. After the flop, things go a bit haywire. Every player gets has to discard one of his three hole-cards (which one he mucks, is his own decision, based on the partial Holdem hand he makes with his hole-cards and the three cards off the board). When they’re done mucking the junk, the turn is shown followed by another round of betting. The river, likewise, is followed by betting and then comes the showdown.

The player who can make the best poker hand (they don’t play for lows here) with his two hole-cards and the cards on the board (any combination) wins the pot.
Pineapple is not an easy poker variant to come by online, however, with the vastness of cyberspace, there’s bound to be a spot somewhere where it too is offered.

Poker rooms where you can play Pineapple poker online are PokerStars, Ultimate Bet, Paradise Poker. Head on over there, and make sure you don’t muck the wrong card after the flop.
