Guys is everybody still alive? Just checking...
I once really loved playing cricket but there are only the three stumps on each side and eventually the symbolism got too much for me and i took up chess. Now i read this. Even poker only has the 60 cards. I am thinking mega crosswords are the way forward
If i ever saw you at a card table, remind me to never play poker against you.
Sunshiny are you in to poker?
Yeah sunshiny, i do not know anything of poker, so why not play our cow friend here?
60 card poker with a 52 card deck? 54 if you include the two joker cards. The rest of the jokers aren't cards.
Jokes from Stud players will not be tolerated. Please confine them to Holdem or Omaha, please.
I thought you might prefer to stuff queens ...
@cowdungflung, there are 52 cards in a deck.
Edit: Oh, we already cleared that up.
@popcorn, there may be 52 cards in a deck, but not necessarily in the game!
So what are the other 8 cards from/for? Are they pawns?
Seven card stud is played with 60 cards:
Note that seven cards to eight players plus four burn cards makes 60 cards, and there are only 52 in the deck. In most games this is not a problem because several players will have folded in early betting rounds. But there are certainly low-stakes home games where few if any players fold. If this is the case in your game, you may want to limit the game to seven players.
I know nothing of poker but 60 card poker seems to be played..
I don't think we're referring to a multi-deck version here ... the implication was that there were "cheat" cards being introduced into the equation :)
Fisher died long before his death....It's said, only a few on the planet understand chess .Well he was one of them...
The 13 year old Byrne / Queen Sacrifice game ... is there another player that has shown that degree of foresight and creativity? Ever?
Sure, aljechin, bronstein, tal and carlsen
Did the lord createth him for the sole purpose of shifting blocks of wood on 64 squares...
I like that comment.
At the end, there was nobody with him who loved him. Very telling.
Not to worry. Cows only live 15 years. Chess is ok for cows.
And a cow beat Korchnoi. Btw i think it is 16 years, because of there being 16 pieces a side.
I think that cow was cheating and using steroids.
I have a book on checkers in my cupboard that I will study when i am 64. It is still many years away, but i believe in being prepared.. Or is this treason and should I stay loyal to the game even when the risks are so enormous?
You need to get a book on checkers with a 10x10 board.
