There are many variations of poker, more or less practiced according to times and continents. Most of them belong to one of the following families:

Hold’ems are played with an array of community cards (usually five); we can cite Texas Hold’Em and Omaha, but also Courchevel, Double Hold’Em, Omaha 5.

Studs are played with certain open cards (visible to everyone), and others closed (out of sight of others); these include 7-Card Stud and Razz.

Closed pokers are draw games where all the cards are dealt closed (hence the name “closed poker”). For example, the ancestral 5-card Draw by Maverick, but also the Deuce to Seven Triple Draw and the Badugi.

Some betting systems are more suited to the variants of a certain family, but each is master at home.
