(1)  Six Plus Hold'Em is a hold'em variant where card ranks 2 through 5 are removed. In Six Plus Hold'Em, a flush ranks higher than full house and three of a kind ranks higher than a straight.

(2)  This tournament will play like ordinary pot limit Omaha Eight or Better, except that each player will be dealt six cards.

(3)   In this tournament, instead of individual antes, each hand the big blind will post the ante for the table.

(4)   This tournament consists of five limit games: hold’em, Archie, stud, deuce to seven triple draw, and stud eight or better. Archie is a split pot triple draw game with qualifiers of a pair of sixes for high and an eight or better for low (aces are low). If there is no qualifying hand at showdown, the pot is awarded to the highest hand.
