More Poker Variations

We'll be heading to Kansas City Airport in a couple of hours, so I need to get cracking on packing, but I wanted to write this journal entry before I forgot about it. While showering this morning, my mind continued to turn over poker variations with fannish connections. Here's another one that is somewhat more playable than Worldcon.


Seven card stud. The first 7 and 3 in your hand are dead. All the others are wild.

(Minneapolis bid for the 1973 Worldcon and lost. They had so much fun bidding that they continued to bid thereafter. Minneapolis in '73 continues to this day.)
