Lower Stakes Draw Games

Do they exist for players in the US? All I see are draw games at 100/200+ levels. And, I haven't found anywhere online for US players to play them.

I haven't seen 5CD above 5/10 or 10/20 on stars so I'm really curious where you're seeing these bigger games!

I was referring to, of course, Badugi, 2-7 Triple Draw, etc.

Seals used to be great. But now it's basically dead.

Thanks for your reply. US players are apparently pretty much SOL for this. I investigated the sticky first, but it's 9 years old. All sites for online poker in the US pretty much suck now. Basically, you need a home game.

Re: Lower Stakes Draw Games

I get or give action on seals a few times a week in their draw games or mix games. I have job, family, so not much time to play. There's nowhere else to play those games so I'll usually just open a table and wait or join someone else's table. I think more US players will be playing once football starts.

They used to have a 5 chip (around $20) 12 game mix every night at 10:30 EST that went off typically. But looks like they just lowered to 1 chip

So maybe you can donk around but it wouldn't be for very much money at all if you care about that

Re: Lower Stakes Draw Games

They also just refunded players for a glitch that had them over-raking pots for a few months in '15 and a month or two in the spring of '17.

My refund was .279 BTC (approx. $1300), so I'd imagine there will be some players with extra chips to gamble with as of today.

Re: Lower Stakes Draw Games

Are there any places with low limit mix including draw games? (And, again referring to Badugi, 27, etc.)

Since the refunds there's been more low stakes mix/draw games and some 5 cd plo on swc. No other site is gonna have them, if that's what you're asking.

Yeah, like a live 20/40 game or something. I've seen it at Foxwoods on Bravo. I don't like bitcoin at the current price. People are just buying it, and buying it, and I don't see what they are actually buying with it. But people are buying it.

Where are you located? It appears that the 40/80 mix is beginning to pick up steam again at Borgata on Thursdays

3x week at Horseshoe, Hammond, just outside of Chicago, they play a 50-100 mix and its usually 8-10 games. Last Wednesday, we had two full tables going with a list.
