Every day, millions and millions of players
around the world will sit at the computer, log in to their favorite site,
and begin to play poker with other fans like themselves. I do not hide, I
am a poker enthusiast, and like all I've noticed that in recent years the
supply has grown at a dizzying pace.
The advent of Texas Hold'em
The classic poker, the one with 5 cards to each player, was virtually
supplanted by this variant, Texas, is now the most popular online game
around the world, with a lot of tournaments on the major broadcast live
on television channels. The rules are simple: each player is dealt 2
cards face down, and then will gradually be put on the table 5 cards,
each player can use freely to make their hand.
The Omaha Poker
Omaha is a variation of Texas hold'em, and is distinguished by two rules,
however, sufficient to upset the game plan. The first is that Omaha is
dealt four hole cards, and not two, to each player. The second is that
you are forced to use at least two cards from your hand to form their
point, so that they can not choose more than three of the cards.
A further variant of Omaha and Omaha Hi-lo, they are awarded the highest
point which is the lowest of each hand (in some casinos the lowest hand
to be paid can not exceed a certain score in such a high card of 8, hence
the name of this variant: Eights or better).
The h. O.r.s.e. is a poker game where you play a hand of holdem later,
one of Omaha, a razz, one of seven cards stud and Eight or Better
(another name of 7 cards stud hi-lo). The acronym for these 5 disciplines
that gives the name of the game. The s.h.o.e. is a variant in which there
is no razz, and then is removed from the R name of the game.
