Poker Variants. There is an endless list of poker variants. The most popular poker game is Texas Hold'em. You can pick from no limit, limit and tournament style games. Be careful about playing real money games in a style of poker you are not familiar with. Any skills you acquired with one style of poker game could be worthless in another game. Understanding the nuances of the different styles requires years of experience. Once you have mastered a single variant you can branch off into other games to refresh your mind and not get bored.

Poker variants fall into categories

draw poker - players can discard and replace their hand with cards dealt to them

stud poker  - In this variant, some cards are dealt face up so you can see what your opponent MIGHT have

shared style - In this variant, some cards are dealt face up to the center of the board, and can be used by all
Texas Hold'em falls into this category.

low - tired of getting low hands? Play lowball where the worst hand actually wins

high/low - In this style of poker the best and worst hands both can win the pot at showdown
