Basic Rules and Strategies of all the 8 mixed poker games

2-7 Triple Draw

Unlike others, they welcome a solid player rather than a good one. Play tight because you can lose everything with a few bad calls. 

Basic rules – All players are offered 5 cards to get the lowest poker hand without hitting a straight or a flush. 

Basic strategy – Here your starting hand matters. If you don’t have 3 unpaired cards with a value lower than 9, it is recommended to fold your hand. If your opponent exchanges 2 cards then you can bet again. However, be careful when he starts to raise. 

Limit Holdem

Basic rules – Unlike others, the game is more action-packed. This means a player will play more hands until shutdown and a beginner will slowly lose his money.

Basic strategy – As compared to no-limit it allows you to play more hands. You can play the same kind of starting hands in both but, try to make a few adjustments.

Omaha Hi-Lo

Basic rules – The game play is similar to the basic Omaha. The major difference between both is in the pot. To get the best low hand all cards are required to be 8 or lower. The game is known as Omaha 8 or better. If nobody has a low hand the pot goes to the player with the best high hand.

Basic strategy – A hand with one or two aces is a perfect starting hand. It increases your probability of winning both high and low hand. In addition to the best possible low hand 5, 4, 3, 2, A is the best high hand as a straight.

Razz

Game rules – The game play in razz is identical to seven-card studs. Unlike Hi-Lo games, you can win the pot with a face card.

Game strategies – Keep an eye on the dead cards and don’t call with hands with little potential.

Seven-card studs

Game strategies – Keep an eye on your opponent’s door card.

Stud Hi-Lo
