Learn with Tom Dwan how the game works:
Short Deck poker is an exciting, high-variance game
that features more coin flip situations than traditional No-Limit Hold’em,
creating a challenging dynamic for the pros and businessmen alike.
In Short deck poker, more starting hands are playable and rank closer in value before the flop.
With just 36 cards instead of 52, straights become more common, while flushes are a rare sight.
In order to adjust for this, the hand ranking chart has been updated and a flush beats a full house.
There’s are no blinds; instead, the game is played ante-only, with the button posting a double ante.
