Check out new Bomb Pots at Americas Cardroom:

Beginning June 2020, Americas Cardroom is changing the face of online poker cash games.

Select Happy Hours, Bomb Pots will “go off” up to four times per hour at all cash game tables (all stakes).

When a Bomb Pot drops, all players put in extra cash. There is no preflop betting and all players get to see the flop. Once the flop is dealt, players resume the hand just like normal.
