New Feature: Six Plus Hold'em!

We’ve got a new addition to our suite of games that’s gaining popularity and taking the poker world by storm. Drumroll please! Six Plus Hold’em is now at Americas Cardroom.

Six Plus Hold’em (also called Short Deck Hold’em) is a variation of Texas Hold’em with fewer cards used. The gameplay is the same, with a couple minor exceptions. Namely, we remove 2s, 3s, 4s, and 5s from the deck, and introduce a couple of hand ranking changes.

Six Plus Hold’em (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

Notice the differences are a 3 of a kind beats a straight and a flush beats a full house.

With fewer cards, it’s easier to land stronger hands, making Six Plus Hold’em an action-packed game!

We are currently offering Six Plus Hold’em for cash games only, but tournaments are just around the corner. Stay tuned for updates and get into the action today!

One of the first things a new Hold’em player needs when learning how to play is a starting hand chart.

Here is the starting hand chart for Six Plus Hold’em.
