Online Games Free   Players have No Shortage of Online Poker Games to try

In the old days of online poker, the selection of games was pretty limited. There was Texas Hold'em, Omaha and Seven Card Stud...and that was about it. Things have changed in a big way these days, though. Now players have more online poker games to choose from than ever before. This being said, let's discuss some of the different games with regard to both variations and formats.

Everything from Badugi to Crazy Pineapple

The days of only having Hold'em or Omaha to mull over are long gone. Nowadays you can find well over a dozen different poker variations available, including ones that combine different games like HORSE, 8-Game, 9-Game and 10-Game. Getting more specific, some of the variations that are available include 2-7 Triple Draw, Badugi, Chinese Poker, Crazy Pineapple, Omaha Hi-Lo, Pot-Limit Omaha, Stud and the games that we previously mentioned.

Now, you might have to spend a little time looking for some of these online poker games. But these variations are out there scattered across different rooms. Some of the bigger poker sites like will feature nearly all of the games that we've discussed.

Different Tournament Formats

You can also find several different poker tournament formats as well. The traditional style is the freezeout event, where you are completely finished if you get knocked out of a tourney. However, there are some other fun types of tournaments such as rebuys, late registration, knockout, bounty, 6-max and heads-up.

As you can see, internet poker doesn't have to be something where you can only stick to one game for the rest of your life. There's a large amount of other poker tourneys and cash game formats available to spice up the experience. All you need to do is look through the lobby of bigger poker sites to find what you're looking for.
