Poker is a fantastic game that entices and engages every single player who plays it. However, it depends on person to person what game of poker they choose. There are so many poker variants that you simply cannot finish once you start listing them. In this article, we are about to note down the most favorite top 5 best poker games of all time.

Texas Hold'em

Texas hold'em is by far the most favorite game of the poker players. All the gaming sites that have Texas hold'em are swamped with players throughout the day.

In Texas hold'em each player gets a maximum of five cards. They have two hole cards that are exclusively dealt to them and five other community cards. To win this game, a player must strategize, bluff, and use their presence of mind. You will have to have the most superior hand to win. The highest-ranking hand in Texas hold'em is Royal flush, and the lowest kind of hand is high cards.

Pot-Limit Omaha

Pot-limit Omaha is more popular with the Europeans. However, Americans are getting used to playing pot-limit Omaha as well. The rules of this poker game are very much like hold'em. However, there are a few differences in pot-limit Omaha.

It is a superb poker game for people who like high-stakes card games. In pot-limit Omaha, the maximum you can raise should not be more than what is already in the pot. In this poker game, each player gets four hole cards. A player has to make a hand by using two of their hole cards along with three community cards.


Razz is a non-traditional game of poker, which is rather fun to play. In this poker game, the best hand is the lowest. So, if you flip the card rankings of Texas hold'em upside down, you kind of get Razz hand rankings. 

In Razz, Ace is the lowest card. So, the best possible combination you can get in the game of Razz is A-2-3-4-5. This naturally means that if you manage to get a hand ranking of Royal flush, or flush, then you are out of luck in this Poker game.

2-7 Triple Draw

Now that we have started telling you about the low-ranking games like Razz, there is another one that might interest you. 2-7 Triple Draw is another low-ball game in which you will have to make the lowest hand for winning. However, in this game, aces are high. Hence the best possible hand in 2-7 triple draw is 2-3-4-5-7.

This poker game does not have the concept of community cards. Each player is given five hole cards, and after each round is over, the players will have to draw five new cards. When the last round is done, the players should show their cards to determine who won the poker game.

5 Card Draw

Five-card draw is the best poker game for beginners. It is one of the simplest and most common poker games that is played around the world. In 5 card draw, you are dealt with five cards. You can opt to discard up to three of your cards and re-draw that many cards you put away. The player who does not fold at the end of the game wins.
