Everything you need to know about 6+ hold’em!

Introducing six plus hold’em!

Six Plus Hold’em (or 6+) is the brand new take on the classic Texas Hold’em game that we all know and love.

It’s intense, fast paced, full of action and ready to play now at Coral.

Don’t worry though, the guys at Coral Poker haven’t decimated poker! We’ve just made it a whole lot more interesting.

We’ve merely added some extra spice to the game that you love and cherish.

Watch the video below, or read on for more information about this awesome game.

What is Six Plus Hold’em?

You know how regular poker uses all 52 cards in a deck? Well, in Six Plus Hold’em there’s only 36!

Basically, what we do is take away all the cards from 2 through 5, leaving 36 hands in the deck! This now means that the odds of landing better hands are shortened generously.

What difference does it make?

Honestly, it makes the world of difference!

The chances of landing a higher value starting hand are increased, and those really poor starting hands are all but wiped out.

Also, the odds of receiving pocket aces in regular poker is 1 in 220. The odds in six plus poker – 1 in 105!

The odds of creating a straight from the flop have been increased to 48%, up from 31%.

The odds of landing a flush are now higher than landing a full house. This means that in six plus holdem, a flush is now more powerful than a full house!

Straights are now easier to hit than three of a kind, and so are now ranked lower. Aces can count as the lowest card in a straight, which means that A, 6, 7, 8, 9 is now a legitimate hand!
