So, I have recently started playing a well known site on a well known network and they have introduced six plus hold em.

Using a combination of new customer bonus' and this new game with VERY weak players, I have cleared £100 profit in a couple of days, and withdrawn already. (The speed poker is good on this site too). Mainly microstakes, not much action at other levels.

So, back to 6 plus.

Cards 2,3,4,5 are removed from the pack. The lowest straight is A,6,7,8,9.
Because of the low cards removed it changes the odds, so three of a kind beats a straight and a flush beats a full house.

It is making me really concentrating which is again, making me think hard about what I am doing and I am finding poker interesting again (I have wiped out £300 of losses in last 2 weeks, and turned a profit, so really back on form.)

It means you end up with a game of hold em with the action of Omaha.

Anyone else playing these?

I have heard of this variant of the game, and know which network introduced it recently, but i have no active account there. Maybe i give it a try and go for a new skin there, when i have two weeks of in the near future.

I dont think i have ever heard of this variation.
But looking at the rules now you will have to be a little more concentrated on the game,
making wrong calls having in your mind, holdem or omaha. Smile
Nice start there. Keep up the good results.

I haven't tried it yet but I wanted to when I first heard about it last year. I think it was Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan that were speaking highly of this variant. Seems like there's a lot of action, lots of decisions to be made... less passive play too.

Obviously there's always room for improvement, this could be the poker of the future Blink

Yeah, I have found it impossible to play whilst playing normal hold em at same time.

I played cash and tourney. I like both but as primarily a mtt player it is nice having a cash game I can beat Tongue

It is similar to Omaha in that there is a lot more decisions to be made and way more ways to be outdrawn, any tilt in this game could destroy your bankroll.

Yesterday I lost 3 BI's to some guy who was just going all in and hitting every hand, and he built a massive stack. But then he lost it all before he could double me up :/

Yeah I think you hit the nail on the head there.

You need to be able to build a stack quite quickly, because people are so aggressive that they will just raise everything and invariably only need to get lucky twice.
And aces etc aren't nearly as strong in this game.

That said, if you can get an aggressive table that lets you limp preflop but then goes mental on the flop (which I have seen a fair bit), its easy to play passively and just wait for monster flops, knowing you will double up.

Nice thread IQA. I saw this advised and the promo that you refer to but haven't been and given it a go yet. Your comments about trips beating straight and flash beating full house, is there a related new hand hierarchy for this variant or is it just statistically based?

What's your user name on this lovely site so I can keep an eye out for you. (And try and steer clear of your imaginative ways of playing poker (no more 56s for you in this game tho!). Blink Smile Big Smile

Georgieporgie is me

the hand heirachy is made specially for this variety based on the odds. apparently there is more chance of a full house than a flush

I look for this game on the net and if i understood well there are two variances of this game.

One is like hold,em with the river and the other one the river is given face down to each player as a third hole card and then you have to make your hand with two of them and three cards on the board a little bit like omaha.

Which one of them are you playing. Question Question

As for the flush i also read that since there are only nine card instead of 13 to make it is why it is more difficult than having a full. Smile Smile

I am playing the normal hold em one but just less cards.

The river card one sounds interesting though Smile

well me ponders that there is most value where there are lots of mistakes... and by the looks of things this game really can force you into making more mistakes than the usual holdem. as long as the concentration is there, and a few drunk and happy dudes join the tables this looks like a beefy game...

I'm sure people will learn to play this better with time. Gotta make more cash while it lasts IQA Big Smile It may be more complicated than hold'em, but once you're used to the game it's still pretty easy to know whats the nuts and whats not the nuts I guess.

I would like to practice it at very small stakes but I don't think I have logged into my b-et 365 account in many many years if that's the room you guys are referring to?

It is being played on most poker sites on that network I believe.

I am playing on pa ddy poker and doing very well.

As a new customer, I got a free sports bet, turned it into profit and then moved it across to poker and got all their free tokens and stuff too.

It is all very good fun Smile

So I played a few hands of cash yesterday and won a free token into a promo game. I hope to use that token later today and then reinvest in more play to win more money and more tokens. I'm at a break even at the moment, learning how this game plays. It seems there is more chance to hit more hands which is an interesting post flop problem.
