TonyBet were the first online bookies and poker room to bring Open-Face Chinese Poker to the world of real-money online gambling. They weren’t as popular as they should have been in the beginning, but as word spread and fans of OFC realised that this was the place to be, their numbers grew. After being in operation for a little while longer, TonyBet’s numbers have continued to grow and they have continued to focus on Open-Face Chinese Poker, and now they have welcomed a new game to their poker room.
Known as Open-Face Chinese Pineapple 2-7 Poker, this has a lot in common with standard OFC, and indeed with Pineapple OFC, which has become one of the most played poker variants in the last few months. If you know how to play Pineapple then you’ll know how to play this new game, and if you enjoy Pineapple then you will love this.
In this variant players use their middle hand in a Kansas City lowball style, which means they need to put the lowest possible hand in the middle. This is a slight change, but it mixes things up and makes the thought process of compiling your hand much harder, due to the fact that there are more cards in the middle and therefore more chances of making a big hand.
As with Open-Face Chinese Poker, the limits on this new variant start as little as a couple of cents a point, and they go all the way up to 25 Euros, or around $35 USD. This is another exciting step in the world of Open-Face Chinese Poker, and once again it is one that was ushered in by TonyBet.
