Different Types of Poker Games


Whether you are looking to play Texas Hold’em, Omaha, or Seven-card razz, there are a variety of games available. You may also be interested in playing for a good cause, like helping kids in need.

Texas hold’em

Using the flop, turn, and river, players attempt to make the best possible five-card poker hand. The player with the best hand wins the pot. This is a popular poker game that has gained popularity over the years due to its exposure in popular literature and television.

A typical Texas hold’em hand includes two private cards and five community cards. These cards are known as the ‘board’. The ‘board’ is turned up for all to see and is the basis for the cards used by each player.

The flop is the first shared card dealt to all players. The turn is the second shared card dealt and the river is the fifth shared card.


Originally a poker variant of the 1980s, Omaha poker is a game of chance and bluffing. It is similar to the traditional game of Texas Hold’em, but there are several differences. For one thing, the rules are much more complicated. In Omaha, you must use two of your hole cards in combination with three community cards to make your best hand.

The best possible hand in Omaha is the Royal Flush. To win, you need to win your hand and your opponents’ hand. However, if you want to win the high hand, you need to bet a higher amount than if you were attempting to win the low hand.

Seven-card stud

Unlike the other variants of stud poker, seven-card stud uses antes and bring-ins to limit the size of bets. The ante is a mandatory bet that each player posts before receiving their cards. A bring-in is an additional bet made by a player. The highest card that shows in the first betting round counts as a bring-in.

The bring-in is a great way to get action and make a big bet. This bet counts as part of the total amount of the player’s bet. If the player pairs the door cards, he can increase the bet amount. The bring-in bet must be placed at the same level as the bet placed by the player with the highest card.

Seven-card razz

Basically, razz is a lowball game played with a fixed limit betting structure. It is played with two to eight players and the table can be anywhere from 56 cards (8×7) to 56 cards (8×9).

Generally, the ante is a fixed payment each player makes before the cards are dealt. It can be a small bet or a big bet depending on the situation. The goal of the game is to have the lowest hand. The lowest hand wins the pot.

The first three cards are dealt to each player. A player can bet, call, or fold. The fourth card is dealt to all players face up.
