Community Poker Alternatives


In Community poker games, there are a specific number of cards which are dealt face down to each player along with a certain number of cards laid out in the center. Between the flipping of the cards are the betting rounds. There are different variations in the community poker games, out of which the Good Versus Evil is one of the interesting games enjoyed by gambling enthusiasts.


The Good Versus Evil game can be played by 8 players at the most. Five cards are dealt face down to each player and then rows of five are flipped face down in the center of the poker table. One of the rows in the center is called the good row while the other row is named as the evil row.


After betting once, the dealer exposes one card in the good row and one card in the bad row. The card in the good row is the community card and can be used by anyone for their hand. If a player has a hole card (the card dealt face down and kept hidden) with the same rank as the recently exposed card in the evil row, that particular card is deemed to be dead and the player must flip that card face up. Cards with the same rank as a card in the evil row may not be used in assessing hands at the showdown. If the card is considered evil, the rank is also the same. If the card in evil row is of the same rank as a previously or the next to be exposed good card, then that good card is shifted to the evil row and is also considered bad or evil as they form a similar rank.


After you bet again, the dealer exposes another good card and another evil card.  Players holding hole cards with same rank as the evil card must again turn those cards face up in front and not consider them in their final hands. The procedure continues with alternating bets with the exposing of center cards until all the ten center cards are exposed. The betting continues in this way till the showdown stage.


In order to find the winner, the high and low hands are split. The High/Low makes it possible for the pot to be split into two at the end of the game where one half goes to the player with the best hand, and the other half go to the player with the worse hand. The hands are made on the basis on the remaining hole cards and the community hands in the good row.


There are variations to the Good Versus Evil card game like the Gaguine corollary and Use and Lose. In the Gaguine Corollary, if a player loses all 5 cards because they all match cards exposed in the evil row, the game is immediately declared over and that player wins the entire pot. In the Use and Lose, the pot is split between the players with the high hand as above, but the other half goes to the player with the lowest total score among his or her hole cards. The Roll 'Em is another interesting feature of Good versus Evil which make the participants strive for a bigger pot.  After the community cards are shown, the players “roll” their card one after another with a betting round between each of them until every card is made public.


The Good Versus Evil community game has other names like Heaven and Hell, Good Card, Bad Card, Yin-Yang, Up and Down the River, Build 'Em Up, Tear 'Em Down, The Good, Bad and Ugly. The Bad and the Beautiful and Dump 'Em. You can find more information about such kind of games and their variants in poker.com
