Post Time Poker
Post Time Poker is the first Texas Hold'em game where instead of simply playing the hand you’re dealt, you get to choose which hand (or hands) to play!
How to Play
A new game begins every ten minutes, and opens with 12 two-card Texas Hold’em hands being dealt face-up, followed by the center card of a five-card community FLOP pile, also dealt face-up. The deal takes between 60 and 90 seconds, and shown below is a sample table layout as wagering begins.
The object of the game is to predict the order in which the highest-scoring hands will finish once the remaining four “FLOP” cards are dealt and exposed. But you must also evaluate changing odds and payoffs as other players wager into each pool. Each wagering period lasts for approximately four minutes. Once the wagering period closes, the final four FLOP cards are dealt into their respective positions. The hands are then ranked using standard poker scoring, and official results are posted.
Post Time Poker uses a pari-mutuel wagering system, including the following available wagers:
Shown below is a sample screen that would be displayed on monitors at brick & mortar locations, such as tracks and OTB’s. Card values and odds are shown in the upper left-hand section; the live studio feed is in the upper right; and certain payoffs and pool values are shown in the lower section.
Certain things are apparent so far:
Shown below is a sample results screen. This particular FLOP hand has generated two “favorites” (hands #6 & 12) as well as two “longshots” (hands #8 & 10) included in this deals highest-scoring hands. Payoffs for wagers including hand #10 were relatively large, due to it being viewed by most players as a longshot.
Two other things to note in this example:
1) The 4-OAK carryover hit! Those other two 5’s did, in fact, make it out into the FLOP hand.
2) No player correctly chose a winning Superfecta combination of all four hands in exact order, therefore that pool was carried over to the next deal (along with the Straight Flush and Hi-FLOP field wagers).
