No Limit texas Hold'Em
This is arguably the number one card game of all time in terms of being simple, very difficult (if not impossible) to master and appealing to humans.

Unfortunately this game has been analyzed to death via solvers and other tools, still it is being played a lot today.

https://www.pokerlistings.com/poker-rules-texas-holdem

The issue with the game being easy to solve could maybe be fixed by scapping the blind-system and instead just have people pay antes into the pot (which can be position dependent). With antes only everyone could potentially see the flop for free.

Max players = 23

pot limit: none

Pot Limit Omaha
This is still not as popular as texas holdem but it is very popular at the higher stakes due to being significantly harder to solve.

In PLO you hold 4 cards of which 2 will be selected for a hand, this will be combined with 3 from the table (of 5). Betting is limited to the size of the pot.

While this is still a relatively simple game it is flawed in the sense that betting has to be artificially limited due to starting hands being too close in equity.

max players = 11

pot limit: 100%

Best of 3 omaha
Its like normal omaha except now there will be 3 (flop, turn, river) meaning you end up with 3 hands and in order to get the entire hand you need to win at more hands than anyone else.

hand1: won by player 1
hand2: split between player 0 and player 1
hand3: won by player2 with player 0 having the second best hand.

Here the entire pot will go to player 1 but if player 2 would have folded then the pot would instead be split between player 0 and player 1.

Max players = 9

This can be played without any limit to how much you are allowed to bet when you are deep stacked.

No limit stud
5 cards out of 7 are selected just like with texas holdem. There are no community cards.

preflop: 3 cards
flop: 5 cards
turn: 6 cards
river: 7 cards

The rules for this game has not yet been finalized but it is supposed to have the same or similar betting structure as No Limit texas Hold'Em

max players = 7

Pot limit: none

No limit draw poker
You are only allowed one draw, if you discard just one card then your first card option will be public, if you do not want that you will get a second card that will not be public.

After the second betting rounds all remaining player will show 3 cards of their choosing.

5 suit holdem
A fift suit and an additional card can be added so you select 5 cards out of 8 for the following

0. 5 of a kind
1. straight flush
2. 4 of a kind
3. rainbow straight
4. flush
5. full house
6. straight
7. 3 of a kind
8. 2pair
9. pair
10. nothing

A = (1,14)
K = 13
Q = 12
J = 11

3 can be counted as 16 for straight flush or rainbow straight
2 can be counted as 15 for straight flush or rainbow straight.
K can be counted as 0 for straight flush or rainbow straight

It has the disadvantage of requiring a special deck of cards which most people do not have.

Preflop: each player hold 3 cards
flop: 2 community cards are added
turn: 1 community card is added
river: 1 community card is added
spate: 1 community card is added

max players = 20

pot-limit: none

3 of a kind (without full house) as the final hand is actually less common than a straight. The rules as suggested here might not actually be ideal.

6+ Hold'Em
The size of the deck is reduced making it easier to solve in the HU case. It might still be harder to gain an age via solvers in practise due the blind structure making it likely multiple people will see the flop.

Card rankings are (from best to worst):

0. straight flush
1. 4 of a kind
2. flush
3. full house
4. straight
5. 3 of a kind
6. 2pair
7. pair
8. nothing

Max players = 15

pot limit: none

This is supposed to be played with deep stacks (100BB or more).
