Holy Iron Cross, Batman

I've seen the following game referred to by a few names; Holy Cross and Iron Cross to name a couple. It is a game in which players are dealt a five hole cards to play with community cards, this time in to configuration of a cross.

crossThe version I am most familiar with uses five community cards laid out in the form of a plus sign. The cards are revealed one at a time, each followed by a round of betting, with the middle card revealed last. The player makes the best hand possible using the two in their hand and either the vertical or horizontal line of three cards from the cross. The picture, for example, depicts a full house beating a straight.

This game allows for many variations such as having the middle card as a wild, each player dealt two hole cards instead of five, or having one side of the cross longer than the other.

I like this game because of the high number of betting rounds and the little differences that make people who think that it is just like Texas Hold'em lose. However, like most game variants I highlight, I don't like playing it continuously, but rather use it as a break from the standard poker games I play.


Ancient people used to place holy cross near their bedding. This was done in order to avoid home lighting from calling the evil spirits. Today we have such innovations as art in our outdoor furniture.

  1. It's funny you should post this message. The other day, I played "cross" for the first time in years. I'd forgotten all about it. We used to play it a lot in the old days.

  72. Die ideale Schaufensterwerbung am Point-of-Sale

    In der heutigen Zeit ist es für jedes Geschäft, welches erfolgreich sein will, enorm wichtig eine ideale Werbestrategie zu haben. Dazu gehört auch die Schaufensterwerbung vor Ihrem Geschäft. Stellen Sie sich all die Menschen vor, die heute an Ihrem Geschäft vorbeilaufen. Gewinnen Sie deren Aufmerksamkeit durch eine starke digitale Schaufensterwerbung! Durch das richtige können Sie Ihre Kunden gezielt an Ihrem Schaufenster neugierig auf Ihr Geschäft machen und passiv ohne weitere teure Werbemittel Ihre Kunden täglich aufs Neue für Ihre Produkte und Dienstleistungen neugierig machen.

    Wir bieten ihnen professionelle Displaylösungen.
    Durch unsere Expertise, wissen wir genau worauf es bei der Schaufensterwerbung ankommt.
    Denn was viele Geschäftsinhaber nicht wissen ist, dass die Displays an den Schaufenstern oft viel zu dunkel sind. Bei zu grosser Dunkelheit ist es für die vorbeilaufenden möglichen Kunden unmöglich, einen wirklich guten Blick auf Ihre Werbung zu ergattern. Der Kunde kann durch die Reflextion an der Scheibe, welche das ganze Bild verzerrt, keine richtige Einsicht auf Ihre Produkte erhalten. Wenn bei Ihrer Schaufensterwerbung die digitale Anzeige nicht richtig installiert ist, können Sie als Geschäftsführer auch keinen richtigen Mehrwert aus der Schaufensterwerbung schlagen.
    Damit Ihnen so etwas nicht passiert, sollten Sie unbedingt uns beauftragen. Wir beraten Sie und gemeinsam werden wir die richtige Lösung für Ihre Digitale Schaufensterwerbung und POS-Marketing finden.

    Nutzen Sie Ihr Gebäude als Werbefläche, ganz nach Ihren Vorstellungen. Werben Sie Ihre Produkte mit einer originellen Schaufensterwerbung und übertrumpfen Sie Ihre Konkurrenten. Das Beste ist, Schaufensterwerbungen so wie auch digitale Schaufensterwerbungen eignen sich für jede Branche. Ob Sie nun Produkte direkt in Ihrem Geschäft verkaufen oder ob Sie diverse Dienstleistungen ausser Hauses anbieten.
    Wussten Sie: Geschäftsinhaber in ganz Deutschland geben im Durchschnitt bis zu 80 Millionen Euro für Schaufensterwerbung im Jahr aus. Der kommende Trend der Digitalisierung bremst diese Marketingstrategie keineswegs aus. Im Gegenteil, es wird immer mehr für die digitale Schaufensterwerbung ausgegeben. Es ist auch erwiesen, dass man durch diese Schaufensterwerbung seinen Kundenstamm massiv vergrössern kann. Dies zeigen eindeutige Zahlen des Wirtschaftsministeriums, welche eine Studie im POS-Marketing Bereich durchführten. Digitale Schaufensterwerbung ist eine Investition, die sich lohnt.
