What is your favorite poker variant and where do you play? I love PLO8, HORSE and 8-game in that order, but being from US plo8 is really the only game i can play at my leisure - sometimes I will play at SWC to get my mixed games fix as they have it all, but I really do miss Stars - sometimes I play play money 8-game just because

I love all stud variants and actually prefer them over flop games.

what sites do you play at?


Ah, in my heyday, I plied my craft on FTP where they spread nearly everything except draw games. I'm based in the US so my only options right now are ACR which doesn't have nearly as much variety for mixed games, so sometimes I travel to LA or Vegas which spread these games during large festivals.

But since you can win the biggest in holdem poker, that’s what I play most often. :cool:

My favorite is PLO 5 cards, I only find on poker stars. It's a really fun game, with a lot of action. But, I mostly play NLH because my results are better playing NLH than PLO.

I’ve been playing SwC Poker recently listed in the topic. Although the question I will ask “off topic” is related to SwC, so I would beg if anyone knows to answer me. I did not find the option to change the seat place when I play an instant game on an Android device. I don’t like it when my hole cards are on the top of the table. Does any of the SwC players know if this option exists? In the Windows application there is a possibility to change the seat place.

It's funny because Texas Hold'em was always my favorite. But whenever I dealt it, I had to explain it to half of the table. Then they started putting it on TV. Now it's all anyone wants to play. It makes me miss the days of dealer's choice when each dealer seemed to have their own preference. That's why I love a good HORSE game, when I can find one. Lately, I've been playing at ACR. To my knowledge, they don't offer any mixed game tournaments.

When i just start playing online i was trying play different variants like omaha, badugi, pot-limit hold'em and other. Now the best for me and the only one is no-limit hold'em.

apart from the holdem that I think most choose this style as their favorite, I also like the 5card draw

I like PLO myself as I think its a very underrated game. Played a few Stud games and Razz as well but give me the Omaha games over them

Honestly, I only play NL Hold'em, and I usually prefer freerolls. Freerolls are the best option for me to improve my skills and build a bankroll.

I really only like to play NLHE METS micro to low stakes and I only really play at ACR. I only ever play on PS for CarsChat freerolls and homepages.

The favorite type of tournament is slow hold'em. Recently, multi-day online tournaments have become very popular.

My favorites are Holdem and Omaha, it is the best there can be in poker for me. They are also the most played variants

Hello.
I play on many sites, but most of all I like 888 and ACR. I have been playing poker for about three years and only play NL Hold'em. Unfortunately I do not have time to study other games.
