Hi guys,

What games would you allow in a Dealer's Choice game?

I'm only familiar with (that is, I know the rules to):

Hold'em
Omaha
Omaha Hi/Lo
Razz
7 Card Stud
7 Card Stud Hi/Lo
Crazy Pineapple
7-2 Lowball
Badugi

I'll play you in any game you name for any amount you can count.

In our DC games we don't allow any games that allow wildcards or anything that takes longer to explain the rules than to play. Our general guideline when we started was that we'd only play games that are WSOP games. That is a pretty good rule of thumb though we do have exceptions that were either grandfathered in or that we've folded into the mix.

At this point our list of games include:

Hold'em (FL, PL, NL)
Omaha (FL, PL)
Omaha/8 (FL, PL)
7 Card Stud (FL)
7 Card Stud Hi/Lo (FL)
Razz (FL)
2-7 Triple Draw (FL)
2-7 Single Draw (NL)
Badugi (FL)
Pass the Trash (FL) - It's an Anaconda variant
Baduci (FL) - This is a five card draw split pot between Badugi and 2-7 Lowball

The only thing that we played outside of the normal world series games are Pineapple and Crazy Pineapple. Other than that, we might take a shot at something else if everyone knows the game and agrees upon it to play.

Just an OT question that I'm curious on. Do you think playing this many varriants makes you a stronger player, or weaker as you can't really hone your skills in one game when your spreading so many varriants?

I think the more you know about all forms of poker, the better you will be at any of them.

It'll keep your mind alert to the change in strategy and what you need to change as they occur during the session. It'll also show how some of the other players change it up (or not). Not so much stronger but more rounded. My 2 centz

You sort of answered this yourself.  It will make you overall better, but probably will hurt you if your goal is to specialize in one or two games.  That being said, being good at several games can only be positive.

Exactly..it all depends on what your goal is. If you want to be equally good or 'decent' at all games, then play all of them. Playing more games makes you a stronger 'all around' player, but specializing in one game can be beneficial as well.
