In our private poker game we have added new games and now we seldom play holdem. Its mostly tahoe and omaha because there is just so much more action. Have any of you run the road with your private games? Do you think playing the other games hurts or helps your Texas game?
It's hard to tell whether other games have a positive or negative impact on your holdem game. It always depends on what you play instead of holdem. If you are new to poker then I would advise you to just stick to one type of game until you understand it correctly. it doesn't really matter which type of game you start playing, but since holdem is one of the most popular poker games, many people will advise you to start with it. But I think poker is a game and first and foremost it should be fun and everyone has their preferences so find your game and have fun and I wish you every success
I only play hold'em. I prefer to focus on one area and develop my skills in that area. I have good results, my bankroll is growing and I am completely satisfied with my progress, so I am not interested in other options for the game.
