Short Deck (6+)
If you have been playing only traditional Texas Hold’em tournaments or are looking for a new type of game format, then there’s no better time to broaden your poker horizons by taking this chance to add Short Deck to your repertoire.
Short Deck Hold’em (also known as 6+) is a poker variant that is very similar to Texas Hold’em. Every player is dealt two hole cards, with five community cards on the table. Using their two hole cards, players have to make the best five-card hand out of the seven available.
However, in Short Deck, all the 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s are removed, so the deck has only 36 cards instead of the usual 52. Due to these numerical changes the hand rankings are slightly different from Texas Hold’em. For example, in Short Deck, a Flush beats a Full House, and because all 2s to 5s have been removed, you can make a straight using A-6-7-8-9 or 10-J-Q-K-A.
Natural8 also provides Short Deck cash games and, to spice up proceedings, Natural8 cash game players can win extra money by climbing the Short Deck $5,000 Daily Leaderboard. There are nine different stake levels to choose from, with each level featuring a separate Leaderboard.
Cash game players will also have a chance of hitting The Short Deck Flush Jackpot. As long as you fulfill the conditions (even if you end up folding!), you will still be eligible for the jackpot.
Whether you are a cash game player or a tournament enthusiast, Natural8 is a great place for you to check out Short Deck Hold’em. With the upcoming Short Deck Series, there couldn’t be a better time to enjoy exploring a different type of poker.
