Types of Poker games played in the Casinos
- Texas Hold ‘em
Every player is dealt with two cards facedown or hole cards and the remaining players share 5 cards or community cards when dealt face up. The gist is to combine your own hold cards with community card to gain the best five card hand.
- Omaha Hold ‘em
This is also similar to Texas Hold ‘em, where every player is dealt 4 cards and must make the best hand with two of them mixed with 3 community cards.
This game contains many variations. But in the regular Pineapple version, every player is dealt with 3 hole cards. Every player must get rid of one card from their hand. The game continues further just like Texas Hold ‘em.
- 7 Card Stud
In this game, the players ante up before the deal is made then two hole cards are dealt with and one card face up or door card. Every player is dealt with a total of 7 cards where three face up and four face down. Now they have to choose the best 5 card combo from these cards.
