Chinese Pineapple

Pineapple Open Face Chinese poker, the most popular OFC variation is derived from the standard OFC featuring Fantasy Land.

Just as in regular Open Face Chinese poker, players get several cards in turns, and place them face-up before setting a 13-card hand, consisting of the top, middle, and bottom rows, of three, five, and five cards, respectively. The game begins with the players setting their first five cards each before the pineapple part kicks in.

The first five cards are placed just like in the regular OFC, but then players are dealt three cards instead of just one at a time. Each player can then use only two of their three cards in any of the rows before discarding the third one face-down.
