When you shoot the moon in pineapple OFC, do you get 20 points, but the other player always scoops you? or does your hand not get scooped because it shot the moon?

So is there no place to post this on stackexchange then? – hedgedandlevered Aug 20 '14 at 12:17
@RaduMurzea OFC is becoming more and more popular, and I think this question should be allowed here. The help centre just says "Poker Stack Exchange is for serious players and enthusiasts of poker." I think any variant of poker which uses the standard five card poker hands (flush, full house, two pair, etc) should be on topic. Similar to how on StackOverflow there are some languages that are not as popular, but are still on topic. Tags help people find questions that are relevant to them. – Paulpro Aug 20 '14 at 14:53
OFC is a very popular variant of poker. I don't see why it wouldn't be allowed. – Brent Morrow Aug 20 '14 at 19:55

I've added an answer to the meta question. I think OFC is on-topic. @RaduMurzea makes a good point about the specifics of what "poker" is and is not. I've tried to address a couple of those points in the meta answer. – Toby Booth Aug 23 '14 at 12:08

Since it is very hard to shoot the moon in POFC, other players do not scoop you if you get there. So you gain 20 points from each player.

Otherwise the risk you take would (by far) not be worth the outcome. (Imo, I think that 20 points from each player is still not enough to make this play profitable.)
