6+ Short Deck

It’s raining cash in the fastest poker game in town

This is the game where flushes beat full houses, you flop loads of sets, and say goodbye to pocket 3’s. It’s Short Deck Poker.
This format is a favorite of both recreational players and high rollers alike. Arguably the most exciting variant of poker available, it’s proven to be a hit amongst the players who love thrilling games of chance.

What’s the difference between normal Hold ‘Em and Short Deck?

Well, there’s less cards! To be precise, we’ve taken out the 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s. That means the hand rankings will change. You can make your hand using one or both of your hole cards (and of course the five community cards).


There are only 5 seats at the table
Flushes rank higher than full houses
Your lowest straight is A-6-7-8-9
