Red 6’s

Red 6’s have no value. They cannot be used to complete any hand, not even a pair, except for “a Bonedoneskis”. For example, if you have a red 6 in your final six card hand, your hand now contains only 5 cards.

A Bonedoneskis

If a player has both red 6’s face up on their board, the hand ends and the pot is automatically awarded to that player. Both red 6’s must be the natural 6’s (no wilds). This is known as a Bonedoneskis.


When a red 4 is face up, either by being dealt or by having a hole card exposed, the person holding the red 4 may make any person turn one of their board cards face down. For example, if Player A holding the X-X-6♠-4♣-Q makes Player B expose one of his hole cards, and he exposes a 4, Player B can then make Player A turn down the 4♣ and Player A’s hand now cannot win at showdown.

Codependent 2’s

If a player is dealt the 2 or the 2♣ on fourth, fifth, sixth, or seventh street, he may then combine that 2 with the card on its immediate left while retaining the suit of the left-hand card. For example, if your board reads X-X-7-5-2♣, you may then combine the 5 and 2♣ to make a 7, wherein your board will now read as a pair of sevens. If you combine two cards, those cards can either play as the combined card OR the separate cards at showdown. For example: the hand J-9-5♠-9-2♣-J♣ does not read as J’s full of 9’s, only three J’s with a 9 and a 5. You may not duplicate a card that is already in your hand. For example, you cannot combine the 8♣, 2 to make the 10♣ if you already have the 10♣ in your hand.
