Get your adrenaline pumping like the first time you played with our new Six Plus Hold’em, now added to our cash game roll call. It’s your standard Texas Hold’em with a few exciting twists, more playable strong hands and a truckload more action that’s loved by high stakes players the world over!

Six Plus Hold’em

Also known as Short Deck Hold’em, you’ll be playing with a 36-card deck where all cards lower than a 6 have been removed from the usual 52-card deck. That means there’s a new low straight of A-6-7-8-9 to look out for, and without all 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s on rotation, the hand values, odds and probabilities are affected. Just adjust your strategy to meet the challenge. Plus, there’s a couple of changes in the hand ranking order to remember, for instance, a three of a kind beats a straight.

Forget these few changes at your own peril, but otherwise, the gameplay remains the same. It’s the action-packed alternative to traditional Texas Hold’em to get pumped about next time you hit the cash tables at BetOnline!
