Back when the poker craze really started to take off, a group of my gaming buddies and I would get together for poker nights. We just would just have a nickel ante, so losing $10 over the course of a night meant you really lost your shirt (we were poor gamers, after all). We'd play all different types of poker to keep things fresh. So, if, at the time, we'd had Battle Poker around, I'm sure it would've been part of the cycle as well. It takes regular poker and adds battle card mechanics. It's up on Kickstarter now.
