      Hello,

      I just saw this thread on 2p2: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/21/draw-other-poker/game-ofc-1345972/

      https://apps.facebook.com/openfacechinese/

      Its a free app for Open Face Chinese poker on Facebook. Its beta and its play money ofcourse. The app is nice, but there are no people playing, so get in there and lets play :) You don't need to register, you can login straight with your Facebook.

      (*note: I don't have anything to do with the app, just saw the thread on 2p2 and want some people to play with :) )

      This will arguably be one of the biggest game in the near future.

      You can read the basics/rules/scoring on the Internet, but here is the general concept:


      your lowest 5-card board should be your strongest hand.
      your middle 5-card board should your middle strenght hand.
      your 3-card board should be your weakest hand.

      If you dont accomplish this you get a penalty and basically cant win.

      So making hand strenghts in the right order is your #1 priority.

      For example:

      22A
      44557
      Flush

      Is a very decent hand.

      QQJ
      88A56
      Full house

      Is basically nothing.


      Your 2nd priority should be to make at least QQ on your 3-line board so you get into the so called "Fantasy Land" - you can read more about this on the Internet, but thats like the main goal of the game, because then you can win rly big on the next hand.

      Hi SundanceKid,

      I noticed a little bit of traffic filtering through from pokerstrategy.com so I thought I'd come and see what people are saying about the app.

      It is still pretty early days which is good in a way as I can respond a lot to feedback and make the app better for all.

      I'd also like to know what you guys think of my hastily written rules page @ http://www.openfacechine.se/go/rules which probably could use some work. I may make a youtube video detailing rules too :)

      I'd love to hear if anyone has played it and has any comments about it, and let you guys know that I have a working Android and iOS app which will be on the way into the various app stores very soon

      Cheers
      Stephen
