I play quite a few but mostly Texas Holdem, mainly because that is the preferred game for many players, the registration to any size game happens to fill very fast and you could be in and playing within a minute.
Other Variants I can play are Omaha, 5 Card Draw, Stud, and Razz. The time it takes to fill some of these games can be a little slower, but I find Omaha is getting more popular than it was a few years ago.
I would recommend that anyone trying out new formats that they are not used to, To buy-in first with Play Money chips, so they can get an idea how the rules work, before they start to lose real money, Just like Texas Holdem it can take a lot of practice before you fully understand the different Variants of the game.

When the fun Stops, STOP!

Sometimes I play in a 8 mix tournament.

It is:
Holdem
Stud
Stud hi/lo
Omaha
Omaha hi/lo
Razz
2-7
Holdem limited.

Which one is easy, none.
Normally I will loose it all at the Holdem unlimited. :):)

I think that the simplest poker is Holdem, Omaha is also suitable for everyone.

I primarily play No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha and Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo Split. I will occasionally play Limit Omaha Hi/Lo Split when SCOOP is running on pokerstars.

Are any of them easy? LOL, I sure don't think so. There's so many different variables to the games, and with No-Limit Hold'em being the most widely played game, the fields in tournaments are so large, that winning is an amazing achievement.

From time to time, I will play some other games, but not enough to really say I'm a regular in any of the other games.

I know how to play most of them in general. My brain cant seem to comprehend playing for a low hand and the High/low things get me when trying to decide to play for the chop. I enjoy holdem and the more straight forward draw variants.

once I tried to learn to play omaha but it got very complicated and confused me a lot, I thought you could make a flush with a single hole card, but to complete
a play it was always necessary to use the two hole cards, I came to understand it but not
I get used to it, so I stick with unlimited holdem for both cash and tournaments. There are many more variants but maybe in the future I will be encouraged, for now only the holdem without limit.;)

I do like to play Badugi. It's really fun game and one of my favourite. The rules are really simple. Unfortunately there are not so many tournaments with this variants

I mainly only play NL Hold'em which is also my favorite and always will be. Lately though I've been messing around on SwC Poker and it has freerolls with all sorts of variants. I don't really like Omaha but I do like Omaha hi/low which I think is weird ha! I really do like 2-7 triple draw and badugi though and I seem to be pretty good at them!!

I think I do play about six or seven variants, but one thing is to play other one is to be good.
My best play comes on Omaha. The 4 cards game do like me more than all the other.

I think hold-em is the simplest otherwise I primarily play No-Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha is pretty straight forward too :)
