Different Versions of Poker
Traditional poker has evolved over time and new versions and types have been brought to the table. Different versions, like Texas Hold ‘Em, have become just as popular, if not more, than the original game.
Omaha Hi is a variation of Holdem that is quickly growing in popularity. You can place Omaha Hi with as little as two players and as many as 10. There are four betting rounds. Each player gets four hole cards and five community cards are dealt face up for the table to share. Each player will use two of their hole cards and three of the community cards to make a five-card hand.
Seven Card Stud is played with 2-8 players. An initial ante starts the game, followed by five rounds of betting. Each player will have four cards face up for others to see and three cards that will remain face down. The goal is to make the best five card hand with the seven cards you were dealt.
Five Card Draw is one of the oldest versions of poker. Played with 2-5 players, betting consists of an initial ante and two rounds of betting. After the first betting round, players can draw up to five new cards to increase the value of their five card hand.
Caribbean Stud Poker is a little different than the previous three variations. In this game, everyone plays against the house. The house pays out all winning bets. Players only have to beat the dealer’s hand to win.
