At PokerStars, you can enjoy all of your favorite poker games, twenty-four hours a day.

Here is a list of the poker games available at PokerStars.

Texas Hold’em

Available in limit, pot limit and no limit action, Texas Hold'em is the game that World Series main event champions like Chris Moneymaker were playing when they won the crown. By far the most popular game in today's poker world, we have plenty of ring game tables and tournaments running right now.

Omaha High

Omaha is similar to Texas Hold’em in some ways, but the players receive four hole cards, and the hand must consist of exactly two cards from the player’s hole cards and exactly three cards from the board. (In Texas Hold’em the hands can consist of any combination of board and hole cards.)

Omaha High is a popular variation, especially in pot limit. PokerStars offers Omaha in both limit and pot limit formats.

Omaha Hi/Lo

Omaha Hi/Lo, or Omaha Eight (played with an ‘eight or better’ qualifier for low), is offered in limit, pot limit and no limit action.

5 Card Omaha and 5 Card Omaha Hi/Lo

5 Card Omaha and 5 Card Omaha Hi/Lo are similar in some ways to regular Omaha games, but with a fifth hole card dealt to each player pre-flop. 5 Card Omaha games are available at Pot Limit and No Limit tables, while Hi/Lo games can be played at Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit tables.

Courchevel and Courchevel Hi/Lo

Courchevel is exciting form of 5 Card Omaha, where the first flop card is dealt face up at the beginning of the hand. Courchevel Hi/Lo is a popular split pot form of Omaha poker, where each player is dealt five cards pre-flop. You can play Courchevel and Courchevel Hi/Lo at Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit tables on PokerStars.

Seven Card Stud

Until the surge in popularity of Texas Hold’em, Seven Card Stud was the most popular poker game. You can still find plenty of options at the Seven Card Stud tables at PokerStars, available in a wide range of limits.

Seven Card Stud Hi Lo

The split pot version of Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo offers a twist to this classic game. Available in limit action, if you like Seven Card Stud or Omaha Hi/Lo, look into the Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo tables.

Razz (7 Card Stud Low)

If you think you can never make a hand, Razz is the game for you. This version of seven-card lowball allows you to shoot for the absolute worst five-card hand and still win.

HORSE & 8-Game Mix (Mixed games)

HORSE (Hold'emOmahaRazzSeven Card StudSeven Card Stud Eight-or- Better) is the collection of games that allows you to prove how well-rounded a poker player you are. If you get bored playing one game all the time, try out HORSE to round out your skills. We also offer 8-Game Mix, which is the same rotation as HORSE, but also includes rounds of No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and 2-7 Triple Draw.

Five Card Draw

Five Card Draw is the game most people grew up playing around their kitchen table. This classic game will get you back to your poker roots and maybe make you some money in the process.

2-7 Triple Draw & 2-7 Single Draw

Deuce to Seven Triple Draw and Deuce to Seven Single Draw are lowball games that force you to make the worst possible low hand. 2-7 games have different rules for reading the hands, so you should review the rules before playing!

Badugi

Badugi is a form of draw poker, where the object of the game is to make the best low hand of different suits, from the four cards you are dealt. Badugi has some interesting different rules from other poker games, so you should review the rules before playing!
