Sixes And The One Eyed King ##BEST##
Making its World Premier debut at the Dances With Films Festival at the Fairfax Laemmle on Tuesday, July 25, 2006 at 9:30 p.m., this is one of the most original motion picture concepts to come along in a while, let alone to grace a film festival.
Sixes and the One Eyed King
David Modica's haunting music on acoustic and electric guitar touches the listener's heart with the anticipation and ultimate fulfillment of the journey home. His delicate melodies, continually reinventing themselves, and the rich colors he gently coaxes from his instrument reflect his experience both as a musician and as an individual who has spent most of his life seeking inner understanding.
David's style is all his own, developed over many years as a performer and composer. His work involves various techniques, including fingerstyle, flat-picking, jazz chording, spontaneous improvisation, classical, rock, blues, and folk. David pulls these various elements together in a unique mix that creates a timeless space in sound.
Additionally, Richardson said they're already working on a sequel titled My Name is Still Bruce. Sounds good, but wait, don't we need to see the first film before we get a sequel?! Maybe this will end up like Bruce Campbell's Evil Dead movies, where the second one turns out better than the first anyway. We debuted a trailer for My Name Is Bruce last December and although it didn't look like anything amazing, I'm still very excited to eventually see it. Campbell will always get an extra special mention for anything he's in because he'll always be the greatest B-movie actor ever! Will you see My Name is Still Bruce?
Thinking about those dealer call games I played in college, I was wondering if folks would want to share the specifics of the many different card games you've played over the years or perhaps not in decades.I'll start. I loved Black Maria. Essentially it was just Seven Card Stud with a twist. When the Queen of Spades surfaced in the up cards of any player in the hand, it was constituted a misdeal, the pot stays, all players still in the hand re-ante, and the hand is re-dealt.I loved that because it was such a fun social loose game and for the nickels and dimes we played with, it had awesome pot building potential. More or less it was like buying scratch offs, but a fun one nonetheless.
Kings and little ones - gotta have a king to have a little one.three thirty three - threes are wild and you need one to open.fives and tens - 5's and 10's are wild and you need at least one of each to open it.threes, sixes and nines - 12 wild cards; I always hated this game.Acey Deucey - aces and deuces wild.Hi Chicago/Lo Chicago - basically the same as seven card stud except the lowest or highest spade in the hole gets half the pot depending on whether you're playing hi or lo.Bingo - everyone gets 5 cards. 13 cards are peeled off 1 at a time. If a card is peeled off that you have you muck it. First one to muck all 5 cards gets bingo. No bingo means everyone pays a predetermined amount for each card left. Repeat until someone gets bingo. 4 of a kind is -EV!So many more.....
Kings and little ones - gotta have a king to have a little one. LOL:We called it Kings and little men... 5 card draw, kings and low card was wild. Winners were usually boats, 4 and 5 of a kind. Saw a few paychecks go into the pot over the years.Guts, Pimp Guts, Pimp Guts with a Twist....3 card poker, pimp was one card up and the high card had to stay in, twist had the up card and any matches also stayed in.Screw your Neighbor ...one card pass to the leftCriss cross, trips to win. deal 4 and play 3 horizontally or verticallyAnd my all time fav - Between the Sheets...no need to explain.
I played them over Thanksgiving and Christmas. Love playing 3 card Monte. Other games I can do without. They're obviously a crapshoot but fun times with the family. Nothing too crazy with wilds until you get to my sister's bf. "Follow the Queens Black Mariah, Low in the Hole is wild and 7's are wild"So that means just about half the deck is wild and you cant go to the river without packing 5 aces, you just cant.
My Dad called out a game I'd never heard of before as the last game of the night, something about "Fours and Whores and One-Eyed Jacks, Suicide Kings, Natural Sevens takes all. Basically, every Four and Queen in the deck is wild, half the Kings and Jacks are wild, and if you have a natural pair of Sevens, you win regardless of what anyone else has. I ended up taking a $60 pot (of quarters, mind you) with Five 9's which beat out Five 3's and a straight flush. No one had the Sevens (it was a 7-stud variation).
King's Cup is a popular drinking game that is perfect for any party or small gathering. There are many different versions of the game, and it goes by alternate names such as "Circle of Death," "Ring of Fire," or simply "Kings". The rules of the classic version of King's Cup are outlined below, along with some notable variations and additional rules.
This page describes the ranking of poker hands. This applies not only in the game of poker itself, but also in certain other card games such as Chinese Poker, Chicago, Poker Menteur and Pai Gow Poker.
There are 52 cards in the pack, and the ranking of the individual cards, from high to low, is ace, king, queen, jack, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. In standard poker - that is to say in the formal casino and tournament game played internationally and the home game as normally played in North America - there is no ranking between the suits for the purpose of comparing hands - so for example the king of hearts and the king of spades are equal. (Note however that suit ranking is sometimes used for other purposes such as allocating seats, deciding who bets first, and allocating the odd chip when splitting a pot that can't be equally divided. See ranking of suits for details.)
In games where a player has more than five cards and selects five to form a poker hand, the remaining cards do not play any part in the ranking. Poker ranks are always based on five cards only, and if these cards are equal the hands are equal, irrespective of the ranks of any unused cards.
Four cards of the same rank - such as four queens. The fifth card, known as the kicker, can be anything. This combination is sometimes known as "quads", and in some parts of Europe it is called a "poker", though this term for it is unknown in English. Between two fours of a kind, the one with the higher set of four cards is higher - so 3-3-3-3-A is beaten by 4-4-4-4-2. If two or more players have four of a kind of the same rank, the rank of the kicker decides. For example in Texas Hold'em with J-J-J-J-9 on the table (available to all players), a player holding K-7 beats a player holding Q-10 since the king beats the queen. If one player holds 8-2 and another holds 6-5 they split the pot, since the 9 kicker makes the best hand for both of them. If one player holds A-2 and another holds A-K they also split the pot because both have an ace kicker.
Five cards of mixed suits in sequence - for example Q-J-10-9-8. When comparing two sequences, the one with the higher ranking top card is better. Ace can count high or low in a straight, but not both at once, so A-K-Q-J-10 and 5-4-3-2-A are valid straights, but 2-A-K-Q-J is not. 5-4-3-2-A, known as a wheel, is the lowest kind of straight, the top card being the five.
A hand with two cards of equal rank and three cards which are different from these and from each other. When comparing two such hands, the hand with the higher pair is better - so for example 6-6-4-3-2 beats 5-5-A-K-Q. If the pairs are equal, compare the highest ranking odd cards from each hand; if these are equal compare the second highest odd card, and if these are equal too compare the lowest odd cards. So J-J-A-9-3 beats J-J-A-8-7 because the 9 beats the 8.
It first sight it might be assumed that in low poker the hands rank in the reverse order to their ranking in normal (high) poker, but this is not quite the case. There are several different ways to rank low hands, depending on how aces are treated and whether straights and flushes are counted.
A wild card card that can be used to substitute for a card that the holder needs to make up a hand. In some variants one or more jokers are added to the pack to act as wild cards. In others, one or more cards of the 52-card pack may be designated as wild - for example all the twos ("deuces wild") or the jacks of hearts and spades ("one-eyed jacks wild", since these are the only two jacks shown in profile in Anglo-American decks).
Some games, especially five card draw, are often played with a bug. This is a joker added to the pack which acts as a limited wild card. It can either be used as an ace, or to complete a straight or a flush. Thus the highest hand is five aces (A-A-A-A-joker), but other fives of a kind are impossible - for example 6-6-6-6-joker would count as four sixes with an ace kicker and a straight flush would beat this hand. Also a hand like 8-8-5-5-joker counts as two pairs with the joker representing an ace, not as a full house.
In Low Poker, a wild card can be used to represent a card of a rank not already present in the player's hand. It is then sometimes known as a "fitter". For example 6-5-4-2-joker would count as a pair of sixes in normal poker with the joker wild, but in ace-to-five low poker the joker could be used as an ace, and in deuce-to-seven low poker it could be used as a seven to complete a low hand. 041b061a72
