I’ve come up with a couple variants of Texas Hold’em poker and I’d like to share them with you:

Fishbowl

Typical Hold’em, but every discard (mucks, burns) is face up instead of face down.  Haven’t tried it yet, but I get the feeling that, on one hand, some people may fold hands they normally wouldn’t when they see all their outs are gone, but players with draws may follow them more ardently because none of their outs are showing.

Lazy River

If the river (the last card on the table) is not bet at, the dealer asks for a Lazy River bet, which is a bet to see a sixth table card.  If someone bets the Lazy River (min. is the big blind, as usual), those who do not call or raise must fold.
