Pineapple Hi/Lo plays like regular Pineapple (as described below) until the end of the hand, when the pot is split between the high hand and the low hand, if any. Hi/Lo games are usually played 8/b, which means that a low hand must not contain any card higher than an 8 to qualify as a low.
Pineapple, or Crazy Pineapple, resembles Texas Hold'em. There are two big differences though. First off players are dealt 3 cards instead of 2. There is a round of betting. Then the flop comes (3 cards just like hold'em) and there is another round of betting.
However the second difference is that after the betting on the flop, each player must discard one of their cards. So they are back down to the traditional two cards and play is then the same as a hold'em game.
