These days the game gains more and more respect from poker players all around the world, including the poker pros.
History of the Game:
The big gamblers got tired from playing one poker variation all the time, so they mixed-up different poker variations.
Slowly, it became a great way to see who the best poker player is. The big break-through of those mix-games into the poker public started not too long ago , in 2006. The WSOP hosts a h.o.r.s.e turnamen with a $50,000 USD buy-in , which creates a huge buzz in this populer mix-game.
Today more and more online poker rooms are embracing the mix-games idea and creating tables that can suport these kind of games.
How to Play:
Mix games play in rotation in horse for example you play Holdem then Omaha 8/b, stud etc.
After we play all the games we would start over, back to Holdem and start all over again, the game can change in two ways : Number of hands or set amount of time, depends on the game model and/or the host rules.
All the games are played in limit model.
Well, I guess No-Limit Texas Hold’em will not dominate poker forever. Some day this game will take over the poker world by storm. I will put my money on h.o.r.s.e, why?
Because it is the ultimate challenge, because that what the pros like and everybody else will just follow them.
