Poker and its Popularity8th Sep 2017 |
Online poker has many reasons for being so popular; you don’t have to leave the house to play, you can chat with other members while you play if you like, and there are many versions to choose from, to name a few. The best thing about playing in our live casino versions is that you can communicate with the dealer and watch real cards dealt out in front of you.
For players who like having an in-person casino experience, without having to travel, playing poker at our live casino is a good option. At Superlenny we have a lot of variations of this famous and traditional game in order to keep the game fresh for players.
Several Versions Available
There are many versions of poker, including; Texas Hold Em’, Razz, Seven Card Stud, Badugi, and Stud Poker. The most popular games worldwide tend to be Stud Poker, Draw Poker and Community Card Poker.
When playing Stud Poker, each player receives between five and seven cards. There are multiple rounds of facing up or facing down cards, and the first player is allowed to switch between rounds. The cards that are dealt facing down are also known as ‘hold cards’, which is the inspiration behind the term ‘ace in the hole’. This idiom is a reference for a possible winning hand that someone might hold without the other players being able to see it.
It’s only in the last couple of decades that seven card games have become more standard. The names of the different versions of the game tend to come from the number of cards that players are dealt. If players have three cards, the game can sometimes be calls ‘third street’, or with five cards, ‘fifth street’.
Poker at SuperLenny
Community Card Poker has a lot of variations, and means that players will share a set of cards, i.e. window cards, shared cards, or community cards. This type of game tends to be played in people’s homes, and sometimes includes spread limit versions, while in casinos like ours games are more likely to have a fixed limit. The game is concluded with each player having two cards while the board has five, and is in the centre of the table, players then attempt to make a winning hand from the combination of the cards in hand and the cards on the table.
The most popular example of community card poker is Texas Hold’em, and the Ultimate Texas Hold’em version can be played here at SuperLenny.
