As of February 22nd iPoker has released a new and exciting format of online poker called Six Plus Hold’em and you can now play this at Poker at bet365.

This is a twist on regular Texas Hold’em in which all cards 2 through 5 are removed, thus creating a 36 card deck.

The new format creates more action as the chances of being dealt a premium hand increases.

This does affect the odds of making certain hand rankings, which results in the following changes to traditional hold’em:

• A flush beats a full house
• Three of a kind beats a straight
• Ace can be used to make the low straight A, 6, 7, 8, 9 in the same way it can be used to make the low straight in regular Texas hold’em - A, 2, 3, 4, 5

So head over to bet365 and start playing today!
