Community Card Poker Games

There are a lot of different kinds of poker games for a person to play. All of these poker games fall into four main types of poker though: Straight, draw, stud, and community card poker. Straight poker is the kind of poker game where each player is dealt a complete hand at the beginning of the game, and all of the players have a single betting round where they are allowed to raise and re-raise. Draw poker is a poker game variant where each player is dealt five cards each -a complete hand. They can change their hand by getting rid of cards that they do not want, and having new cards dealt to them. In a stud poker, on the other hand, a player is dealt cards in a certain sequence of face-up and face-down "streets."

All of these poker card variant types were developed during the mid to late eighteen hundreds. The most recently developed poker card variant is community card poker, which was introduced during the 1920s, at around 1925. This kind of poker game uses "community" cards to help a player complete a hand. These community cards are also frequently referred to as "shared" cards and "window" cards, and they are normally dealt to the center of the table, where all of the players can see them.

Aside from the community cards, each player is also dealt an incomplete hand that they are to keep concealed from other players. This incomplete hand will be combined with some or all of the community cards to create the best kind of hand possible. The cards that each player is privately dealt are also frequently called "hole" cards or "pocket" cards. All of the community cards, as they are laid out on the center of the table, are collectively called the "board."

The most popular community card poker game is Texas Hold'em, which is the Main Event for the most important poker event in the world today. Another hugely popular community card poker game is Omaha Hold'em, which is also played in the World Series Poker and is part of most H.O.R.S.E. games. Aside from these two hugely popular community games, there are also other variants offered in casinos and cardrooms, such as Pineapple and Manila, and their variants. Aside from these common public gaming establishment offerings, there are also a large number of "home" community card poker games that a group of poker players can choose from enjoy. Examples of these home games are Cincinnati, Iron Cross, Lame-brain Pete, and Otis Elevator.
