Former US Women's Chess Champion and writer Jennifer Shahade and Jim Geary play 17-card Chinese Poker Chess at the "Math-house" party at the 2012 World Series of Poker.
In this game, they each set one five-card high hand, one five-card low hand, one badugi hand and one three card high hand. Whoever sets first presses the other player's clock. The slower Chinese player can only move after setting the hands. Scoring= 1 point for each poker game, 4 points for chess, four point bonus for sweeping all five games.
