Short Deck Poker hits the partypoker screens

Let’s kick off with the big news that Short Deck poker, often referred to as Six Plus Hold’em, has made its way to the partypoker lobby!

A BETA version of the popular, all-action 36-card version of Hold’em has been released to the global dotcom market, with partypoker ‘the only operator to offer the exact same version adopted by the Triton High Roller series’.

partypoker ambassador Jason Koon is a big fan of the game without the 2, 3, 4 and 5 cards, and if you want to follow in his short deck footsteps you can find out more here.
