Global Poker Introduces Caribbean Poker

Poker fans have a plethora of games to choose from online, and now there's another game to try. Global Poker hosts some of the best online poker games, including the new Caribbean Poker. Caribbean Poker originated in five-card stud, except the main difference is that in Caribbean Poker you play against the house, not other players. 

Here are two of the other most popular options:

Texas Hold 'Em

Some poker enthusiasts refer to Texas Hold 'Em as the Cadillac of Poker, and for good reason. It's one of the most well-known variants, both for online and offline poker.

The game is played in several rounds. The first is the pre-flop round, in which the dealer deals two "hole cards" to players. Next, there are three rounds of "community cards," which are dealt face up in the center of the table.

The first round is called the flop and includes three community cards, while the second is called the turn and includes one card. The third round is called the river, and it contains one community card. After every round, players can decide to bet, fold, call or check, based on their hand and the community cards that were dealt. The player with the best hand using their hole cards and the community cards wins.


There are different versions of Omaha, including Omaha High/Low, Omaha High and Five-Card Omaha. Pot Limit Omaha offers some of the largest pots in and is the most popular form of Omaha among professional players in tournaments and ring games.

With standard Omaha, when the game starts, the two players to the left of the dealer must pay the small and big blinds, which amount to half the minimum bet and the total minimum bet. After the dealer deals all the cards, the first player to the left of the big blind can call, fold or raise. Then play progresses to the left until all players have been selected. Players can make up to one bet and three raises in each round.

After the first round of betting is finished, the dealer deals three cards face-up, called the flop. The cards are community cards, and each player has to use three of them in their final hand containing five cards. The next round of betting starts after the flop. The player to the left of the dealer goes first and can choose to bet or check. Then, the next player decides whether to raise, call or fold if there were bets before their turn.

The hands formed in Omaha include the top pair, which involves pairing the highest card on the flop with a hole card. Other hands include two pairs, three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, straight flush and royal flush.

There are many excellent online poker games, but these are two of the most popular. Beginning poker players would do well to build their skills using these two versions.
