If you are thinking about getting into poker or just want to learn something more about it from, this article will definitely help you out in the process. Then you can move on to to play. 

There are many people who don’t know the difference between some of the various forms of poker that exist out there today, so we felt like we would go over some of the more popular versions to help inform everyone that may not be aware of them yet.

2) No Limit Texas Hold’em

No Limit Texas Hold’em is one of two most popular poker variations (the other being Pot Limit Omaha). It’s simple to play, offers a decent amount of action, and has a very strong skill component. In fact, No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments are almost always won by great players rather than skilled amateurs or lucky high-rollers.

3) Pot Limit Texas Hold’em

Unlike most forms of poker, in PL Texas Hold’em, players are not forced to bet a certain amount every round. Instead, they can bet as much or as little as they want and are then obliged to call any raises by other players. This game tends to get very tricky because there’s no limit on how big raises can be – so it pays to play defensively and look for opportunities to make people over-bet their hands.

4) Fixed Limit Texas Hold’em

In a Fixed Limit game, all bets and raises are in a set range. In Texas Hold’em, bets and raises must be between 1 and 4 times the size of your previous bet. In Pot Limit Texas Hold’em, you can make an unlimited raise. This is by far one of my favorite types of poker because you have much more freedom to raise in any amount you feel comfortable with.

5) Pot Limit Omaha

This version is similar to pot limit Texas hold’em in that there is a fixed limit on betting rounds. The difference is that instead of betting just twice in each round, players can wager any amount equal to the size of any previous bet or raise. In other words, it’s pot-limit Omaha because you can bet or raise any amount up to and including your opponent’s full pot.

6) Fixed Limit Omaha/8

The game starts with a small number of cards dealt to each player, who must then decide whether or not to open (bet), and how much. A round of betting follows, and then a second set of three cards is dealt face-up on top of those in front of each player. There is another round of betting, and a final three more cards are dealt, followed by another round. The hand ends after two rounds and five sets; players may check before betting for a third time.

8) Stud poker

Stud poker is played with two down cards, followed by three up cards. The player to act must bet if he has a pair or better; if not, it’s folded. If you are dealt an ace and a 10 in your first two cards (your hole cards), you automatically get one card face-up (the burner) to complete your three-card hand.
