Remember your old kitchen table poker days? PokerStars.com is offering a taste of the old school and a chance to use your draw poker skills with the addition of Five-Card Draw and 2-7 Triple Draw to their busy line-up.
High-stakes No-Limit Texas Hold'em may be "the game" now, but for most, the one they cut their poker teeth on was Five-Card Draw, usually around the kitchen table, with penny antes and pretzels as the spoils in the middle.
PokerStars.com is bringing back a little bit of that nostalgia with the addition of Five-Card Draw to their line-up and adding a bit of a twist to the mix with a 2-7 Triple Draw game as well.
The draw games are played with blinds just like flop games. You'll remember how easy the basics of Five-Card Draw are: Five cards are dealt to each player face down, then a round of betting starts with the player to the left of the big blind.
Players can discard any number (or none) of their cards and draw new ones, with a second betting round starting to the left of the button. If more than one player is still in, it goes to a showdown, highest five-card hand wins
The 2-7 Triple Draw is much the same, with two notable exceptions: You can discard and re-draw three times, with a betting round following each draw, and low hand wins at the showdown.
Since aces are always high and straights and flushes count against you, 7-5-4-3-2 is the best hand you can hit.
