New Arrangements of Familiar Tunes
A few of the emerging online poker sites are adding some new games to the mix, but for the most part, these are specialty games aimed at niche players or gimmicky variations on the standard games (see Figures 5.11 and 5.12). Some of the familiar poker games that you might see online include Five-Card Draw and Five-Card Stud, and we’ll touch on these later in this book. Among the wackier ones are games such as Crazy Pineapple and Double-Flop Texas Hold ’Em.
You’ll learn more about these games in Chapter 15, “The Top Five Online Poker Rooms,” when we tour some of the top online cardrooms. But in any case, the formats outlined in this chapter are the core poker games that you need to be familiar with before exploring the other stuff.
