the old ipoker sites host this game and for some reason 3 of a kind beats a str8?? lolol
i can understand how a flush beats a fullhouse as a flush is much harder to get with less outs.

then at pokerstars they have a straight from the 6 to the ace 6-7-8-9-a lolol
they are on the right track but in all honesty that is 2 incorrect versions of high ranking hands orders
but hey i didnt make the rules and still enjoy the game.

does anyone else or no?

I would say look up the rules first.

I know some basics of the game as I have played it once or twice in the past.

1 the 2,3,4,5, are not in the game
so Ace is high or low (so in straat it can count as a 5)
due to the fact you have more chance to hit a fullhouse then a flush (9 cards Spade Club Heart Diamond instead of 13) the flush is ranked higher than a fullhouse.
So there is a logical explanation ...so my advice just google the rules for 6 + holdm before you play it

The value of three of a kind vs straight can be different in some rooms, but as in normal hold'em, the ace can be either high or low. And low in 6+ means it represents a 5. So the straight is correct, it is just the same as a wheel in hold'em.

Good asvise to look up the rules, as the ranking of hands is different than we are used to.

Six-Plus Hold'em? I have never played this game and probably never will in the future.

But in this game all "the rules" change, it isn´t it? You couldn´t calculate your outs, your odds and pot odds like the game with a whole deck. So you have to calculate your equity in another way. The projects change his value and you have to change their playing. You can play 6+ for curiosity or in recreational mode, but I don´t think that exist some reg of this Confused

This is just the way to make some money.
Learn the rules properly.... and use this advantage versus players that don t do that

so to calculte chances its the outs divided by the number of cards in the deck

to hit a set on the flop this means 2/30 + 2/29 + 2/28 --> 20.7% ( normal holdem its 12.2 %)

As there are only 9 cards of each suit the chance to hit a flush is lower than a fullhouse.--> so the rules are a flush beats a fullhouse (lots of beginners make this mistake as they are used to play standard holdem)

Mathwise makes sense but there's a reason why regular hold'em rules did not changed for decades and became more and more popular. It's still the best iteration of the game - so to start diddling with tweaks and changes based on what a minority of cardplayers want to play with... Dunno, I am not sur emost of us want this that bad.

For all the poker games it s important to follow some rule to pay profitable.

Like chosing starting hands, calculating your pot odds postflop etc.

This is different for each gameplay, so is different for HE than omaha or stud

So if you decide to play a game like 6+holdem I think it s normal you read the rule first (especially the sequence of handstrenght) and learn to calculate the correct pot odds.

When you play not commen games like this , it s often an new player pops up at the table which is an easy catch.

It's not THAT different, this is just hold'em with less playable cards - omaha/stud is kinda a whole other game almost.
