Poker is one of the most famous card games in the world and has a long history behind it. With the development of the internet, the ability to play poker online has become one of the most popular forms of online gambling.
There are many advantages of playing online poker compared to playing live: First, you can play anytime and anywhere, by computer or mobile phone, as long as you have an internet connection. You don't have to worry about traveling to a casino or finding a place to play with your friends. You can also play against people from all over the world and challenge yourself against the best players. There are also several different forms of play to choose from, at several different stake levels, something that is not always the case when playing live.
Another advantage of playing poker online is that you have the opportunity to play on several tables at the same time. This gives you the opportunity to increase your profits and improve your skills. You can also choose to play at tables with lower stakes to increase your experience and reduce your financial risk.
Online Poker at Paf
When you play poker online at Paf, you play on something called the iPoker network. It is a network of different gaming sites around the world that have joined together with common poker tables.

Texas Hold'em, Omaha and 6+ Hold'em are some of the most popular variants of poker games played around the world, all of which you can play online at Paf Poker.
Texas Hold'em online is the most famous and commonly played variant, where players are dealt two private cards and then deal five community cards on the table to create the best possible five card poker hand.
Omaha online is another variation where players are dealt four private cards and deal five community cards. The difference is that players must use exactly two of their private cards and exactly three of the community cards to create their best five-card poker hand.
Six Plus Hold'em online (6+ Hold'em) is a newer variant that has gained popularity in recent times. In this variation, a deck without twos, threes, fours and fives is used, which means that it becomes easier to get high hands. Players are also dealt only two private cards, just like in Texas Hold'em, but they have a greater opportunity to create strong hands due to the reduced deck. Due to the lack of twos to fives in the deck, 6+ Hold'em has a different hand ranking than normal poker: The two important changes are that Flush beats Full House, and Ace, 6, 7, 8, 9 is also a Straight.
