What is Short Deck Poker?

Short Deck Poker is similar to Hold’em, except that we’ve taken out the 2’s, 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s from the deck. 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
