These conventions apply to the "Throw It in a Hole" variants.
- Throw It in a Hole is considered to be a hard variant, meaning that Loaded Play Clues are "turned on" and so forth.
- Bluffs are turned off.
- It is okay to perform a Trash Finesse for the final card of a particular rank or suit, but Trash Bluffs are turned off.
- Since 5's do not give a clue back, then they do not have Priority over other cards in the same way that they normally do.
