I was just thinking which game requires the most skill. In which of poker games player more depend on cards and in which less?
"Any game where there's more decisions to make is a more skillful game. If someone can master stud, then they can master any poker game."--Chip Reese
Do you agree with this? I think that NL Holdem is game where you mostly depend on skill.
And I think that 5 Card draw is game is game where you depend on cards more then in any other game.

I would say the mixed games such as HORSE, HEROS etc... BUT I do think we can't compare this...

Difficult. Yes, Stud type games have one more betting round than the flop games, but they are fixed limit. In no limit or pot limit games the player must not only decide if he wants to bet, but the amount too.

In my opinion the games that push more for skill is PLO. Its harder to beat, you need to think more, its easy to see quads vs quads, you need a lot of tilt control.

No doubt its a pain in the ass of a game.

I agree PLO in regards to TILT control, bankroll management, etc. However, I think in regards to the more basic aspects of the game - betting, folding, calling, raising, reading opponents hands.. ie; making in-game decisions - I think NLHE is a much more difficult game.

NLHE requires more skill for no other reason than there are far more players playing holdem than any other form of poker. To add to this, most online strategy sites specialize in holdem which improves the overall talent pool.

I believe Hold' Em is more tricky than the others, although I've watched many videos about the pros and cons of bluffing in Omaha and handling tilt... Omaha is more interesting and won't make you bored until the showdown, but Hold' Em involves better strategy and guts IMO

I think NLHE is the game requiring the most skill. The general level of players out there is way up versus a few years ago and the game demands a high level of concentration, discipline, and imagination. I also enjoy multitabling 7stud for the aspect of trying to remember the cards your opponents have folded on several tables at once.

NLHE is overrated, you dont need skill at all, you just need to follow the millions of articles and play stritcly like tyhey say. If you play like says in the books youll be a winner, but not all can follow the books.

The games that ask for more skill arte the games with more cards involved, in NLHE you hace 2 cards and plus 5 in the table, in plo you have 4 cards plus 5 in the tables, more cards involved the more you have to think about the possibilities. The probabilty that you have quads vs quads in plo is much higher than in NLHE. You need alot of skill and understanding of the game the fold big big hands in plo. AA in NLHE is the big gun, AA in plo can be very marginal even pre flop.
PLO is a game based on psycology, the swings are bigger and you need more money to play it, you need to be mentally stronger to beat it.

I like NLHE actually its myfavourite game with 7 card stud high, but i admit that NLHE is already overrated.

I believe H.O.R.S.E. just because you are required to know how to play quite different games changing your mind continously.

Well i only can play Hold´em (ok i know the rules of mostly all of them, but Hold´em is the only one i really can play). So i think these HORSE or 8-game players, they have the hardest joby as they have to be allrounders.

i think that omaha its the game who people or players needs the most skills.

but in party poker i knew a new mode game, the double texas hol em no limit, this is a game who maybe you need take a good strategy to win the hand, so i think that in this game you need the most skill.

play this game in party and then tell me what do you think about this game...

take care no play all your fortune, because in this game you will take high hand all the time!!!!

i would say omaha, once it is quite more complex - omaha is easy to get lucky, but complex to own the game
