Hello everyone,

Here i come again with a new creation of mine. I hope you will enjoy it.
It's been a while since my last game but the wait is now over :-)

All 5 of my previous games involved markers. This one is different. I got the idea a few weeks ago while playing a marker mission. One was located right next to a Relto page and i thought: 'Hmm... very interesting. I can do something with this'. Here it is...

The game is called "Uru Hold'em" and is based upon the very popular "Texas Hold'em" game you see on TV. Everyone knows how to play Poker. I introduce a nice variant using Relto pages.

Setup
- Game is played "Heads up" (opposing 2 players).
- 'Dealer' (person dealing the cards) is also present.
- Players receive the same amount of 'chips'.
- Deck contains all Relto pages once (called ReltoCards), except for the 'Fireplace' which has been removed.
- Each Relto page is available in UruLive.
- Each player has a computer with UruLive installed.
- They are required to create a new avatar, link to their respective Hood and look whether they have 'Delin' or 'Tsogal'. They then come back to Relto and tell each other which garden they have.
- 'Dealer' shuffles the deck and deals each player 2 ReltoCards.

Rules
Game is played alone at all times. No player can send (receive) invites. No skydiving techniques or 'FunHouse' effects is allowed.

Players look at their respective ReltoCards and a first round of betting takes place, exactly like "Texas Hold'em".
Then, 3 community ReltoCards face-up called the 'Flop' are dealt.

Second round of betting.
Then, a fourth community ReltoCard face-up called the 'Turn' is dealt.

Third round of betting.
Finally, a fifth community ReltoCard face-up called the 'River' is dealt.

Last round of betting.
Player with the highest 5 ReltoCards' hand wins.

ReltoPoker Hand Ranking (from lowest to highest)
"High Card" : 5 ReltoCards from 5 different Ages.
"Pair" : 2 ReltoCards from the same Age.
"Two Pair" : 2 ReltoCards from the same Age and 2 ReltoCards from another Age.
"Set": 3 ReltoCards from the same Age.
"Full House" : A "Set" and a "Pair".
"Four of a Kind" : 4 ReltoCards from the same Age.

In the event of a tie
"High Card" : Lowest number of links required to get one ReltoCard wins, eventually the lowest total number of links to get 2 ReltoCards, etc... is used to break the tie.
"Pair" : Lowest number of links required to get the pair, eventually the same rule for the "high card" applies (for the third, fourth and fifth ReltoCard) to break the tie.
"Two Pair" : Lowest number of links required to get the 2 pairs, eventually the total number of links required to get all 5 ReltoCards applies to break the tie.
"Set" : Lowest number of links required to get the set, eventually the same rule for the "high card" applies (for the fourth and fifth ReltoCard) to break the tie.
"Full House" : Lowest number of links to get the "full house".


Game
Player 'A' (with 'Delin') and Player 'B' (with 'Tsogal') are currently enjoying their very first hand of "Uru Hold'em". After 3 rounds of betting, dealer shows the 'River' (D'ni Clock).

Image

Player 'A' says: 'There is only one hand that can beat me'. He goes 'All in'.
Player 'B' says: 'There is only one hand that can beat me'. He goes 'All in'.

Questions
1. For Player 'A' and Player 'B', which hand(s) are they talking about ?
2. Which ReltoCards do they respectively hold in their hands ?

Send your answers using private message. Please don't post it here using a 'spoiler'.
Thanks !

Have fun !
