There are many different types of poker games and poker rooms in the online casino world, but here we are going to introduce
you the poker player to the most favored poker games that are out there.
Texas Hold'em is one of the most popular poker games that is played at most of the online poker rooms. The main purpose of Texas Hold'em Poker is to make up the best 5 card hand that you can make with any combination of the 2 'hole' cards that get dealt to you and the 5 'community' cards that get dealt in the middle of the poker table. The best hand is the hand that wins the “pot".
In Texas Hold'em a marker which is usually a disc with the letter “D” on it is used to show the the 'dealer' for the hand. It is also sometimes known as the “Dealer Button Before the cards are dealt out – the 2 players on the left side of the dealer must place the 'blinds', which are bets that basically start off the game.
Omaha poker is a very unique game derived from Texas Holdem. Players are dealt with four cards "hole cards" which belong to you the poker player. There are five community cards which are dealt face-up. All the players use three of the five cards together with two of their hole cards for them to make the best five-card poker hand.
Omaha, also known as Omaha High/Low, Omaha Split and more similar names is a split pot game. That is, in many hands, the pot is split between the best high hand and the best low hand.
Seven-card stud is played with one upcard and two downcards that are dealt before the first betting round,which is then followed by three more upcards. There is a betting round after each card. There is a final round of betting after the last downcard is dealt. The player with the best five-card poker hand wins the pot. All fixed-limit games, smaller bets are wagered on the first two betting rounds, and the larger bet is wagered after the betting rounds on the fifth, sixth, and seventh cards.
Five Card Stud is a game of high cards and pairs. You must never play for flushes and straights unless you have three cards to a straight flush on third street, or it could look like you struck it lucky into a straight or flush on fourth. With only one down card, it is much easier to put your opponents on hands than most games. Be very aware as to how they each play. Usually never start without either a pair or at least one live card that can beat the board.You must usually fold if you do not have at least a pair in the first three cards. 90% always fold when you are beaten on the board and you do not have a good draw to the best hand.
