Basic Rules for Poker Games : How to Play Lazy Pineapple Poker


The next game we’re going to talk about is
called lazy pineapple. Lazy pineapple is one of three variations of the game pineapple.
Lazy pineapple is dealt out just like pineapple, with each player receiving three down cards.
However, in lazy pineapple the players will discard their card after the flop. Let’s see
how lazy pineapple is dealt out. Each player receives three down cards from the dealer.
Once these three cards are dealt out to each player, a betting round will start with the
player to the left of the dealer. Once that betting round is over, the dealer will burn
a card and turn the first three cards to the community, called the flop. Since this is
lazy pineapple, this is where each player will look at their hand and make a decision
to fold a card. Once each player has folded a card from their hand, this leaves him with
two hole cards and a betting round starts. The betting round starts again with the player
to the left of the dealer. Once that betting round is over, the dealer will burn a card
and turn the fourth card to the community, called the flop. I’m sorry, that’s called
the turn. The betting round will start with the player to the left of the dealer, and
once that betting round is over, the dealer will burn a card and turn the last card to
the community, called the river. In lazy pineapple, the best five-card hand wins. So, the players
will turn their cards over using their best five cards from their two hole cards and the
five community cards to make their best five-card hand. And that’s how lazy pineapple is played.

  1. I think there is some confusion about the names on these variants. The only difference I can see from the way I am used to play Crazy Pineapple is that there are no blinds and that the third card is folded before the betting takes place. However, I believe that Lazy Pineapple is supposed to be synonymous with Tahoe which is basically Super Hold'em but with the difference that you can only use two or one of your cards to make your hand at the river (you fold one card at showdown).

  2. This is Crazy Pineapple… not Lazy Pineapple. Lazy Pineapple you never discard but you can't use all three cards at showdown.
