Poker 6: How to play

By Carl Lewis

6+ Poker (also known as ‘Short-Deck Hold’ em’) is a poker game very similar to popular Texas ‘hold ’em’.

How to play

The game is played between two sides – the Player and the Dealer.

The gameplay sees each side looking to win the best five-card poker hand from any combination of the seven cards (five community cards plus the two cards the player is dealt).

Being a 36-card deck, 6+ Poker does not have twos, threes, fours and fives. This changes the probability of combinations and alters winning hands.

Exciting changes include a flush ranking higher than full house, and a three of a kind beating a straight.

Like traditional poker games, aces are the highest card and can make both low and high straights. For example, the lowest straight would be (A-6-7-8-9) and the highest (10-J-Q-K-A).
