Americas Cardroom has announced the addition of Six Plus Hold'em No Limit, which debuts this Monday September 10, 2018.

Six Plus Holdem No Limit is a variation of Texas Holdem that uses fewer cards. The gameplay is the nearly the same except the 2s, 3s, 4, and 5s fare removed from the deck. There are also a couple of changes in the hand ranking order.

Short Deck Hand Ranking (ranked lowest to highest):

  1. High card
  2. Pair
  3. Two Pair
  4. Straight (low straight is A6789 and a high straight can still be made normally)
  5. 3 of a Kind
  6. Full House
  7. Flush
  8. 4 of a kind
  9. Straight Flush
  10. Royal Flush

With this variation, the 3 of a Kind beats the Straight and a flush beats a full house.

 

The fewer cards make for stronger hands possibilities and a more action-packed game.
