Games for Poker Night!


      Ah, now we've reached the fun part!  Having a wide variety of games at your poker night keeps things interesting, keeps the players on their toes, and just makes it a good fun time for everyone.  Don't get me wrong, I love Texas Hold'em - but after a while it's nice to have some change, not to mention more impressive winning hands!  Here's a selection of the favorites from my poker nights - enjoy!

  • Texas Hold'em - The classic;  rules for both tournament and cash games.

  • 7-Card Stud - Another classic, on which many of the others below are based.

  • Chase the Queen - A variation on 7-card stud with varying wild cards...

  • Low Hole - In this version of 7-card stud, every player has at least one wild card...

  • Baseball - Special cards all over the place, but they might cost ya...

  • Blind Poker - How do you feel about betting on a hand that you haven't even seen?  

  • Night Baseball - A version of blind poker, with some wild and interesting cards.

  • The Whole 9 Yards - Another blind poker game, with some interesting twists...

  • Anaconda - Also known as "Pass the Trash," it's a good way to screw your neighbor.

  • 3-5-7 - A very different game, but it can be addictive!

  • Plinko - Not technically a poker game, in this one you go for high or low numerical sums.



Of course, there are hundreds of other games out there!
