We begin with a well-known poker game but one that you may have yet to try called Pot Limit Omaha Poker. Many of the leading mobile video poker apps will have this game available and instead of receiving 2 cards at the beginning like Texas Hold’em, you receive 4 cards. The other main difference between the two games is that you must use exactly 2 cards from the four you are dealt at the beginning in your final hand. As the name suggests, Pot Limit Omaha Poker means you can bet what is already in the pot. So, if there is $50 in the pot you can bet $50 and that is different to the other forms of Omaha Poker such as No Limit and Fixed Omaha Poker.

Online Pot Limit Omaha Poker games are often full of action and fast paced, which is why it is growing in popularity.

Interestingly, this game which is available at some of the top online casino websites and apps, is played with a deck of 36 cards. All of the cards, starting at 5 and running down to 2 are removed from the deck, leaving the cars from 6 onwards in play. When playing Short Deck Poker, each player is handed two hole cards and there are three rounds of community cards known as the flop, turn, and river. There is a round of betting after each of the community cards and you can bet any amount, at any time.

In contrast to Texas Hold’em, when playing Short Deck Poker every player posts an ante and the player on the button posts a blind. When playing this game, it is also worth keeping in mind you can have a straight with both A 6 7 8 9 and A K Q J T plus flushes beat full house.

You may have already enjoyed playing the two poker games highlighted above but there are sure to be some you are yet to try. Razz Poker could fall into that category and this game has been growing in 2020. Also known as Seven Card Stud Low, this poker game can be played online and come the showdown, the Ace to Five low poker hand wins. There are 7 cards dealt in total throughout the game but only the best five-card low hand achievable by each player is used at the end. Therefore, 5, 4, 3, 2, A is the most powerful hand in the game.

These are just three of the best poker games available in 2020 and offer something different to the standard game of Texas Hold’em.
