Card Games You may not Know About

Five card poker and blackjack are possibly the most well known and oldest forms of card games. These are games that even non-gamblers have heard about. But what about the other card games offered at online casinos? Do you know some of them? In this post, we’re going to explain a few other card games and see which ones you may be suited to.

Card Games

Pot Limit Omaha

This form of poker grew in popularity in Europe. It is a modified version of Texas Hold’em, the game where you are dealt cards face down and try to make the best 5 card hand using the community cards. Pot Limit Omaha or PLO is slightly different in that it is played with a pot bet limit attached and players start with four cards in their hand. This card game variant is played all over the world and even at the annual World Series of Poker. It is a juicy game that invites a lot of action. This is due to players being dealt so many cards that you’re always likely to have a reason to play!

Deuce to Seven Razz

This card game variant is unlike many others. Players have to make the lowest possible hand without completing a straight. In other words, you want deuce to seven (2-7). The best combination you can make, the better you will fare. Razz is also dubbed “lowball poker” and has been around since the 1900s. It is less popular online due to its fixed limit nature. It’s never really taken off online. Remember the best possible hand is 2-3-4-5-7. This is known as Seven perfect.

6+ Holdem

This game is played with a smaller 36 card deck. You take out all the cards under 6 and what do you get? An action game! This variant is also known as short deck poker and is a variation of Texas Hold’em. The major difference in no cards between 2 and 5 means players need to adjust their strategy. Relative hand strength changes completely. This card game was introduced to the world thanks to high stakes games. It has gained popularity the last few years but still isn’t on the same level as other popular poker forms.
