Texas Hold'em Poker

Texas Holdem Poker is by far the most popular version of Poker that you will be able to play online or in Home games and casinos. This is the variant that you just discovered in the previous videos and the one you should focus on at the begining of your career in our opinion as it is the easiest to understand but one of the hardest to master due to its uncapped betting structure unlike others.

Pot Limit Omaha

Pot Limit Omaha is, as its named indicates, a variant where the betting on each turn is limited by the size of the Pot which makes it a bit more difficult to make big mistakes.
The second main difference when you compare it to Texas Hold'em is that instead of having 2 Cards in your hand, you have 4, and you must use 2 of them, no more, no less, to build your final 5 card Hand.
Appart from those two distinctions every other rules are the same.

Other Variants

Poker is made of plenty other variants such as Stud, Deuce to seven, Razz and many more, but you will rarely encounter them.
