Texas Hold'em
Texas Hold'em

Texas Hold’em is considered the purest of all poker games by many poker players and is still the most popular format played online. If you’re a new player, there’s no better game to play than Texas Hold’em to get you up to speed with the basic rules and strategy – plus it’s a lot of fun learning how to master the poker genre!

Omaha Hi
Omaha Hi

If Texas Hold’em poker is the most popular poker game online, then Omaha is a close second. In Omaha, you get dealt 4 starting cards to make a hand – although you can and must only use 2 hole cards and the best five cards win. This feature makes for an exciting and action-packed game where the flops can promise staggering amounts of draws.

Discover how Omaha can improve your poker game on our Omaha Hi games page!
Omaha Hi-Lo
Omaha Hi-Lo

Omaha Hi-Lo is a draw heavy version of Omaha Hi where you can win pots with 2 made hands – a high hand and a low hand. Each winner will receive 50% of the pot at showdown. With two chances to win, players can go for a scoop where they win both the high and the low ends of the pot, holding the best 5-card hands.

7 Card Stud Poker
7 Card Stud Poker

If you’ve never played Stud games before, then you’re in for a treat. In 7 Card Stud poker, there are no community cards, and each player receives a total of 7 cards across 5 streets of betting. As 4 of the 7 cards are dealt face up, it’s a game where you can track a lot of your outs as the cards while trying to make the best five-card hand.

Most professional players love poker tournaments. Why? Because you can buy in for small amounts (or even for nothing) and win huge piles of cash and amazing prizes. And if you win big, you could even retire early!

Once you've paid your buy-in to a tourney, you get to play for as long as the chips last. No need to re-buy or top up. You get to see a lot more hands for your Loonies and can learn a lot from just sitting and watching other players go nuts!

In general, Tournaments are relatively low risk. You pay one amount and that's it. For your buy-in, you could get as much as 10K – 20K chips. Although the more common starting stack is around $2K – 3K.

Betting Variants for Your Poker Games

There are 3 main types of betting in poker and each is a little different. No Limit games will have you on the edge of your seat while Fixed and Pot Limit might be a little less action. No matter which game you chose to play, at 888poker you're in for maximum fun and excitement.

No Limit

You've seen the all-in, no limit action on TV, at the World Series of Poker and online. At 888poker, the No Limit tables are always heaving with players – just waiting for the next raise, re-raise and all-in bet. If you think of yourself as an aggressive risk-taker, this format could be the answer to your poker dreams.

Fixed Limit

If slower-paced betting is more up your alley, Fixed Limit games could be the solution. No, you can't go all-in, but the added benefit is that you can't be all-out in one hand. The maximum bet is set at 4 x the Big Blind in each betting round. This is a great way for newbies to play a lot of hands, see a lot more flops, while getting to know the game.

Pot Limit

Don't let the word “limit” in Pot Limit fool you. You can still be all-in pre-flop in games using this betting format. Pot Limit simply means that players can only bet up to what's in the pot. Two or three pot-sized raises in a row and you could be all-in. The pots get huge and the drawing action is even larger! Pot Limit games like Omaha-Hi are known for big hands and bigger pots.
