## The Rules of Six Plus Hold'em

*making the lowest straight or the*

**A6789****wheel**as you may know it, and it’s still high making TJQKA.

There are also some differences in hand strength, like

**3-of-a-kind now beats**a straight and a

**flush beats a full house**(since it’s harder to make one because you only have 9 suited cards out of 36 with which you can make a 5-card flush from).

Although Six Plus Hold'em is for the most part played as the traditional Hold'em in terms of streets, the main difference comes on the river, at least in some variations of the game, when, instead of dealing a community card, every player is dealt one extra card. In the final round of betting, every player still in will have

**three hole cards**and will need to combine

**two and two only**of those with the

**four community cards**to create the best possible

**five card hand**. In other variations, it is played with a traditional river.

## Why is it good?

**poker games**, so learning how to play Six Plus Hold’em will most definitely make you a better player overall.

**poker rules**, so that’s where you make the biggest profit. Like Hold’em was so

**loose**in its online beginnings, where people would stack off with top pair no kicker on any flop back in '03, and people who were decent by that time’s standards made thousands, if not millions of dollars. It was the same with Omaha when people first started playing it, so the time to act is right now as you don't want to lose this opportunity.

## Adjustments and Six Plus Hold'em Strategy

**odds of hitting**. Now, one out becomes one card out of 31 which is roughly 3% chance to hit it. So to hit a flush draw on the turn or on the river you have 5 cards (2 in your hand and 2 down, 5 left out of 9), so 5x3x2=30% chance to hit a flush. But remember that

**this beats a full house**, so it’s the virtual nuts.

Another thing that we need to talk about and everyone absolutely loves is the probability of flopping a set. Here, it’s about 2x3x3%=18% so calling 3bets with pocket pairs becomes more profitable proposition.

## More strategy and math considerations

Let’s start off by talking about all of the aspects of pre-flop game.

## Stacking off

- The chance to get dealt one ace in one card is: 4 / 36 =
**1 / 9**(one out of nine possible cards). - Now, the chance to get dealt the second ace is: 3 / 35 =
**8.5%** - To get the probability of catching aces, you have to multiply the two probabilities and get the percentage, so the probability that we get Aces is:
**(1/9)*(3/35)=3/9*35=3/315=1/105**

**Once every 105 hands**you’ll get AA in Six Plus Hold’em, which is

**0.95%**, which, to tell you the truth, is insane! It’s more than the double of regular Hold’em, and that goes for KK QQ JJ TT and any pair!

- Probability to hit an Ace:
**4/36** - Probability to hit a King after you’ve hit the Ace:
**4/35** - If we multiply these probabilities we will get the odds to get AK pre-flop, so the result is:
- 4/36 * 4/35 * 2(because the order doesn’t matter) =
**4*4/35*36 = 16/1260 *2 = 2.53%**

**5.38%.**In Hold’em it’s

**2.6%**. This is going to invite more action into the game and make it a lot more 3bet oriented, because in Six Plus, 2.6% is very close to AA/KK/AKs.

- 2/36*1/35=0.158%

- AK –
**16 combos**– 0.158%*16 = 2.53% - AA –
**6 combos**– 0.158%*6 = 0.95% - AKs -
**4 combos**– 0.158%*4 = 0.63%

## 3-betting and stack-off ranges

*Why do we still 3-bet AK? Isn’t this a good hand to flat now ? Yes and no.*

**Arguments for 3betting:**

**Blockers**.

- Let’s say you have AK
- This means that from all of his combos of AA, 3 are taken out of the 6 because you hold the Ac.
- Also, from his combinations of KK, 3 are taken out of the 6 because you hold the Kd.
- Also, from his 16 combinations of AK, he is left with 9 out of 16 because you hold Ac and Kd.
- This means that he’s 50% less likely to have AA, 50% less likely to have KK, and 43% less likely to be holding AK, so he’ll fold a lot more often pre-flop

- Let’s say the UTG opens for 3x and you 3-bet from the button 9x.
- If UTG opens 10% of his range and continues only with KK+/AK, even if you fold every time to a 4-bet, you’re making a profit in the long run.
- How? Well, 4.5% of that opening range is AA/KK/AK, but you’re holding blockers so it’s reduced to about 2.5%. That means 3 out of 4 times you win 4.5 blinds(bb/sb/open) and 1 time you lose 9 blinds. That’s good profit in the long run and cannot be overlooked.
- If his opening range is bigger than 10%, you’re winning a lot more in the long run.

**Arguments for flatting:**

- Keeping his weaker hands in.

- The element of surprise

- Not having a standard play, varying your game

**equity**of getting it in pre-flop with AKs is not much higher than that of AKo so I consider flatting a lot more often with this type of hand.

**2% 3-bet range**, because they’re only 3-betting AA/KK, so it becomes super-profitable to call for set-mining purposes (because now you flop a set 18% of the time), and stacking off with only AA versus these players becomes the ultimate exploitive strategy. I’m even folding AK pre-flop because if we call the 3-bet and we hit a king, he’s most likely holding aces, and if we hit an ace, he’s most likely not paying us off with KK.

## Conclusion

**new Hold’em**and it will be a worthy breath of fresh air for all of us that have been playing the same game for years and years. I hope you found these Six Plus Hold'em rules easy to follow and useful as an introduction to the game.
