Poker Variants make playing poker fun

There are many different poker variants and styles of poker. Some poker professional players may specialize in one game and while some may specialize in many different poker variants.  The more popular of the game in the online and offline poker world is Texas Hold’em poker.

The game of Texas Hold’em is a community shared card style of poker, where everyone gets dealt 2 hole cards. The second most popular type of poker is Omaha poker. The game plays very similar to Texas Hold’em but instead of getting dealt 2 hole cards, you are dealt 4 hold cards.


Some of the most popular poker variants include:

  • Strip Poker
  • Five Card Draw Poker
  • Chinese Poker / 13 Card Poker / Open-Face Chinese Poker
  • Big 2
  • 5 card Stud
  • Badugi (version of lowball where suits play)
  • 7 Card Stud Poker
  • Stud High-Low Poker
  • Deuce to Seven
  • Ace to Six Lowball
  • Crazy Pineapple
  • Dead Deuce
  • Pineapple
  • Pineapple OFC, Fantasy Land Poker
  • Low Ball
  • Omaha Hi/Lo
  • Second Hand High Poker
  • Switch Poker
  • Triple Draw Poker
  • Texas Hold’em Shoot-out
  • Chicago (player with the highest spade face down (referred to as in the hole) receives half the pot.)
  • Guts

How to play Guts Poker? We thought we’d share via Pokerzone.comHow to play Guts Poker: Players are dealt three cards facedown after anteing a pre-determined amount. Players then must decide if they want to play the hand depending on their hand’s strength, or their willingness to bluff. Players then extend their cards towards the middle facedown while the dealer counts one, two, three – guts. On the guts counts, players can either drop their hands (fold) or hold them up to advance to the showdown. The highest three card hand remaining in the game wins the entire pot with each of the losing hands having to pay the entire pot as a penalty. The game continues until one player is the only one holding up their hand for a showdown, thus winning the remaining pot with no additional monies being added.”
