Hello All,

Ever since playing in the PSO TCOOP Badugi game last week I've become really interested in the game.

Also Cannon posted a very good post on the strategy behind >>Fixed Limit Badugi<<

I going to run a regular Badugi Game at my home game club and invite anyone that's interested to come along and join in.

It will be a Play Money game so my friends Stateside can join in.

Between games we can use this thread to chat about game play, strategy and general stuff.

If it goes well we might run a 'Alan Jones Shield' tournament for Badugi. Grade B was the winner of the last Alan Jones Shield competition back in 2011.

Anyway, all welcome and all you have to do is reply here if you want in and I'll PM you with the Club ID and invitational code

Cheers,

Raiser

Hey Raiser,
I would be keen to play.
But I think my poker time zone may not suit yours or others from US.
My normal poker time is 04.30 ET to 08.00 ET
I could play other times but prob not more the 1/2 hour games.

I'm interested too. I've played a few badugi tournaments from the freerolls, they're pretty fun. How much play money though? I don't play my play money account. I only have the starting amount.

Ah that's brilliant chuckky, thanks for that.

I'm sure we can schedule a few games to suit all time zones

Cool Built-byTilt very much appreciated!

The buy-ins will be small but if anyone needs some chips during a game I'd be happy to ship them some.

Which 'Club' will it be Raiser ? as you are manager of the PokerSchoolOnline Community Home Game Club.

Oh, by the way I would be interested if it isn't too late.

I stink at draw games in general but took a liking to Badugi when I've played some micro-stakes games, so I'm interested in this too.

Would be great to have you onboard and I'll PM you the details now

Cheers Bill,

Good to know the replayer also works for Badugi hands, thanks Cannon

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Practising on some play money tables. If anyone else in the 'Badugi Club' is doing the same and wants to post the hands here please feel free.

As I said before on my blog it could be a good decision to learn games like these and really specialise in them. There is a ton of information on NL but not so much in games like Badugi. For that reason you can become the Shark in these if you really put your mind to it.

I'm not an overly great Limit player but I play Limit STTs because there are a load of Blue Whales in these that play the game because they think it evens the field. If anything there's a bigger gap in these between me and the rest of the field.

Games like Badugi will have very few experts so your edge could be a lot bigger than you actually think if you become good.

I've no real urge to learn Badugi so I won't join the group but I think it's food for thought on what I said. Find a game your good at and specialise in it.

Good luck guys.

Yeah great advice hold em is so "over populated" its much easier to gain an edge in a lesser known format of poker these days i have a great recoed in omaha tourneys when compared to hold em (although satellited and won a couple of what I consider big scores in the past 9k and 12k plus a few smaller) for some reason I feel I have a bigger edge at omaha and 5 card draw yet still continue with hold em.... hmm iv just discovered a leak in my game !!!



(Must go check this blog of yours out seems I might have missed a trick !)

So here's an interesting dug out of the PokerStars TV archives!

A video of when PokerStars crowned their first EVER Badugi WCOOP champion.

Can't but notice that five of the final table are US players.

Enjoy!

I would like to join too. I don't know if i will actually be able to participate or not, but i would like to as badugi games are not available where i play real money. that being said, i think play money badugi games are more luck than any other kind of poker played in a play money format, other than 5 card draw. i don't think it's possilbe to play skillfully in the big badugi play money tournaments because most situations are so cut and dried--you either have a hand or not, and there's not much in between. it's not like stud where u can see some of the cards. it's almost like trying to combine 2-7 lowball with 5 card draw. thusly, i think it's between these two in terms of skill games. now, if one was to play for a significant amount of money, then badugi becomes more of a game simply b/c there's fold equity, as the ability to bluff comes into play as marginal situations are created that just don't come about in play money or very low staked games. obviously this play money game is different because we have an incentive to do well. im talking about games strictly outside of a home game context.
