There are many different kinds of poker variations. With that being said let's take a look at some of the most popular variations of poker.
Texas Holdem Poker - is easily the most popular and most exciting
variation of poker. The game of Texas Hold'em Poker is a bit more
intracate than say stud poker, as the game features "community cards"
that all players use to make their hands. Anything can happen right
down to the dealer's last flip of the cards. (Also known as "the
river"). The game of Texas Hold'um starts with each player being
dealt two cards (Also known as pocket cards). The rest of the player's
hand will derive from three or four cards of the five cards the
dealer will put out on the table. These five cards the deal shows
located face up in the middle of the table are known as communal
cards and all the rest of the players at the table are using them
to make their best hand as well.
Omaha Poker - Similar to Texas Hold'em, Omaha is played with 4 hole cards along with 2 community cards. Omaha is very exciting and boasts stronger winning hands. Good loot to be made for those good with math and that are willing to be patient as many Omaha players are reckless as hell!
Lowball Poker - The idea here is to have the worst hand. Click the link to read more.
Guts Poker - While this game has over forty different versions and counting, the general theme is almost always the same: the winning hand earns the pot, while all losing hands must match the pot. Variations in play take the form of the number of cards dealt (generally one to five) pot limits or caps, and ante options.
Strip Poker - Probably the most way to play poker as long as your not sitting in a room full of dudes!
