Poker Game Selection

Texas Hold’em
This is the most widely played poker game. This is a form of poker where each player is dealt two cards to begin. After the first round of betting. Three cards are turned up in the center of the table for all to share followed by another round of betting. Then the fourth Community Card is exposed. Another round of betting takes place. The fifth card is exposed and a final round of betting takes place. The best five cards play.

This is a version of Hold’em in which each Player receives four down cards. Five Community Cards are shared and each Player must play exactly two cards from their hand and three from the board.

Omaha High-Low Split
Split-pot games use a qualifier of eight or better for low. A Player may use any two cards from their hand for high and the same or any other combination of two cards for low.

Seven Card Stud
A total of seven cards are dealt to a Player, two down and one up at the beginning, with the low card by suit (Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts, and Spades from the lowest to the highest) initiating the action. On subsequent rounds, the High Hand on board initiates the betting action. The last card is dealt face down. The best five cards play.
