What are the main types of Poker and its rules?
What is most often played in a casino? Any player will answer you without hesitation — in poker! This famous card game has a huge number of varieties, many of which can now be found not only in gambling houses, but also on the Internet.
The main variations of poker, which you can find in the casino:
- Oasis Stud Poker
- Russian Poker
- 6 Cards / 3 Cards Poker
- European Poker
- Texas HoldEm Poker
Only the last two versions are adapted to play against each other (there are both cash games and tournaments), and the gambling establishment receives only a small percentage for the services provided. In all other variations, the player tries to win from the dealer. The most popular type of club poker is Texas HoldEm. Much less often, players are going to play Omaha. In any form of poker, you need to collect a combination: the stronger it is, the more payouts (for playing with the dealer). The weakest is a pair, the strongest is a royal flush. In whatever kind of poker you are not playing, if you managed to catch the «royal combination» — you will definitely be waiting for a huge prize! But still before you start the game, find out from the dealer in more detail all the nuances associated with the rules of your chosen variety.

- In the late 40-ies of the last century, individual card manufacturers began to produce decks, which added a fifth suit.
