Chess Poker. Like poker, but players are dealt a hand of pieces instead of cards.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I agree that this is really very far out on the chess variant spectrum.  I don't think I'd say it's more a poker variant than a chess variant though.  I tend to err on the side of inclusiveness; Greg?

Actually, I think it would be a better game with more poker elements; a matching pair/triple, or flush/straight (but only three cards) should confer some bonus in the chess phase?

And, if the game is to stay, the page needs a fair bit of formatting work.
