Saturday, August 1, 2009, Miami, FL (CAP PR Wire) – Adrenaline junkies and action poker players take note. Launching tomorrow, 7-Deuce Hold ‘em at UltimateBet and Absolute Poker is set to take online cash games to a whole new level of crazy, giving online poker players everywhere a shot at living it large with all the action, stellar bluffs and high drama that the 7-2 prop bet is notorious for.
Exclusive to UltimateBet and Absolute Poker, the innovative 7- Deuce version of Texas Hold’em has the ultimate answer for poker players who crave a load more action at the felt. To sit down at a Seven Deuce table, every player must contribute a side bet ranging from 1.5 times to double the Big Blind, depending upon whether it’s a 4-6 or a 9 player No Limit Hold’em(NLHE) Table. The 7 Deuce side bet is paid out whenever a player wins a hand with 7-2 in his or her hole cards.
“The 7-2 side pot adds an adrenaline-pumping element to Hold’em that you need to experience to believe,” said Phil Hellmuth, UltimateBet Pro player and legend of the game. “I once bluffed Mike Matusow off of two kings with 7-2 as my hole cards. Everyone at the table was floored, but I was on top of the world after collecting $500 a man for pulling it off with the worst hand in poker. Now this awesome side pot game is available online at UltimateBet, and Hold’em will never be the same again.”
Switch it up and turn a rock into a paranoid fish by joining the 7-Deuce Tables, and get in on the action to enjoy a brave new world of bluffs, where it’s as much about the bragging rights as the side-pot. Juice some action out of your table holding ‘the hammer’ in your hand, and just like Phil, you could soon be boasting to your buddies that you have what it takes to win with the worst hand in poker while convincing your opponents to muck the winning hand.
It’s a game changer that will quickly turn a slow burner into a mind-bending and heart-thumping way to enjoy a few hours at the felt. Insane 7-Deuce prop bets are the stuff of legends, so expect to witness some of the wildest hands online, with everyone at the table trying to figure out if a player is making a run for the prize with 7-2 or pocket Aces.
So, leave the standard playbook at the door, enter with the “no guts, no glory” attitude, and get ready to crush the table with the worst hand. The challenge is definitely on. Nothing beats a game of 7-Deuce for creating a little bit of friendly rivalry, and be rewarded with the rush of some of the sickest hands on the net.
