Poker: Choosing a Game
So you’ve heard about this wonderful game called poker, but you don’t know where to start. We understand, after all, there are so many variants from which to choose from. So, don’t fret because help is at hand.
Here are the three most popular games of poker for you to choose from.
1# Texas Hold’em
Texas Hold’em is the most popular form of poker found all over the world and on sites like Unibet. It’s the form of poker you will see on television, and the form of poker that dominates all of the major poker tournaments in the world.
There are two versions of the game: no-limit and limit with the former being the most popular.
Doyle Brunson once called Texas No-Limit Hold’em the Cadillac of Poker.
2# Pot Limit Omaha
Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) is the game of choice when it comes to the cash game version of the game. Whereas in Texas Hold’em you play with two hole cards, in PLO you can play with 4, 5 or 6.
The most common version of the game is the four-card version, and the game can also be played as a high-low split game.
3# Seven Card Stud
This was once the most commonly played poker game in the United States before the explosion of NLHE. There are no community cards, like there are in NLHE or PLO, and instead players will be dealt seven cards and there will be a round of betting in between each deal. This is another form of poker than can be played as a high-low split game.
