Poker Games Always Use the Same Kinds of Cards

Poker Games Always Use the Same Kinds of Cards

We plan to offer rules and reviews for the many different poker games and variants available, too. In most casinos you’ll find house-banked poker games which have at least as much in common with baccarat and blackjack as they do with traditional poker. Of course, you’ll also often find an actual cardroom where folks sit around playing Texas hold’em and Omaha. Our plan is to offer information about all such games, including the following:

Casino Poker Games

For the purposes of this page and this site, we’ve categorized the following games as “casino” poker games, because you’re playing against the house, not against the other players. This list will probably expand over time, as the casinos are constantly inventing and testing new games to see which ones are going to be popular. Some of these catch on, while others generate little interest and are soon retired.

List of Traditional Poker Games

These poker games are played in the traditional way–around a table, competing for your opponents’ money. In casinos, you’ll usually only see the traditional varieties being played. That means your choices are often limited to Texas hold’em and Omaha. You’ll occasionally see stud games at some of the larger casinos, too. But in home games, you’ll find a tremendous variety of poker games, including the following (which we plan to write about on individual pages, too.) Of course, any list like this will invariably be incomplete because of the wide variety of home variants that are played throughout the world.
