6+ Hold'em rules

All 6+ Hold’em games use a deck of 36 cards (all cards are subtracted in sizes less than 6), with each hand shuffled before comparison. Games use a “button blind” structure: each player places an antenna, and the player in the button position is the only one who places a blind – which means there is only one blind in the hand, rather than the traditional small / large blind form. .

The action starts with the player sitting to the left of the button. Each hand is then played according to the rules of Texas Hold’em, in the form of pre-flops, flops, turns, and river bets.

If you’ve played Texas Hold’em before, it’s easy to follow the 6+ Hold’em rules.

But don’t forget: Unlike regular Texas Hold’em games, 6+ Hold’em hits the whole house. The five-card hand, consisting of Ace, 6, 7, 8, 9 (any suit), is considered straight. All other hand ratings remain.
