Ultimatebet and Absolute Poker in the Cereus online poker network have launched a new take on Hold ‘Em poker which the company claims will take online cash games to a whole new level, giving online poker players a shot at living it large with all the action, stellar bluffs and high drama that for which the 7-2 prop bet is notorious.
7-Deuce Hold 'em is exclusive to UltimateBet and Absolute Poker, and is an innovative 7-Deuce version of Texas Hold'em. To sit down at a 7-Deuce table, every player must contribute a side bet ranging from 1.5 times to double the Big Blind, depending upon whether it's a 4-6 or a 9 player No Limit Hold'em (NLHE) Table. The 7-Deuce side bet is paid out whenever a player wins a hand with the worst starting hand in No Limit Texas Hold’em, 7-2, in his or her hole cards.
"The 7-2 side pot adds an adrenaline-pumping element to Hold'em that you need to experience to believe," says Phil Hellmuth, UltimateBet Pro player and 11 times WSOP bracelet winner. "I once bluffed Mike Matusow off of two kings with 7-2 as my hole cards. Everyone at the table was floored, but I was on top of the world after collecting $500 a man for pulling it off with the worst hand in poker."
