6+ Hold’em is a variant of Texas Hold’em as is available at Pokerstars. It has several similarities to the original game but has some unique difference that sets it apart. Here are some of them.
- Unlike the Texas Hold’em any card whose face value is less than six is removed from the deck.
- Everyone in the game posts an ante. A button is the only one that posts a blind. This is why it is called a button blind.
- The player with a flush beats a full house
- Cards of value 6, 7, 8, 9, as well as an Ace, are considered a straight. All the other hand rankings are always the same.

What are the Rules of the Game?
The game is played using a 36-card deck since cards one to five are removed. Shuffling is done before the dealer deals any hand. There is only one player that sits on the blind button and the player is the only one that is allowed to post a blind. This deviates from the big and small blind format is Texas Hold’em.
Playing 6+Hold’em follows the rules set in Texas Hold’em in terms of river, turn, pre-flop and flop betting rounds. The software finds the seat for every player in the online casino. All you are required to do is to choose the game and the amount of stake with which you want to play.
Each of the players gets two cards which face down, also called hole cards. The dealer then spreads a total of five cards in two stages; three at first then two other cards with each at a time. Players bet before and after each of the cards is revealed. In addition, for the player to see the next card and stay in hand, each of the players must put the same amount of chips in the pots as other players on the table.
Some tables place a minimum number of hands that any player can play before they sit or leave and not incur a time penalty. The game issues time penalties that accumulate as time goes. However, the time accumulation is very low and has little impact on most of the hands on the table. The main aim of these penalties is to deter the attempt by players to join and leave a large number of tables with the intention of determining which seat to take.
