Dealer's choice poker is a style of poker that has not yet made its way to the world of online gambling. It is a style of poker that is primarily played in people's homes. These games usually won't be found in casinos or at Internet gaming sites. Usually a game of dealer's choice poker is a more recreational way to play. Most games are played like this: the deal passes around to each player, who decides on a variant to play. This variant is then played for one hand or for the entire rotation. A lot of dealer's choice poker games have their roots in children's games or feature wild cards or types of kill and burn cards. Frame up is a poker game that is related to Omaha and Texas Hold'em.

Types of Dealer's Choice Games

Dealer's choice games can be based on any type of poker variant including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Stud, Draw and wild card games.

Stud and draw variants of poker are generally the oldest versions of poker. In this variant, each player is dealt a certain number of cards. Then the player must make the best hand he can out of the cards he has. In draw poker, the player can trade some of his or her cards for cards in the deck. The number of times a player can draw and the number of cards that can be traded will depend on the game.

In Texas Hold'em and Omaha you are dealt several hole cards - the number depends on the game. Then, a sequence of community cards are laid out and turned over. The object of this variant is to get the best hand you can by using a combination of your hole cards and the community cards on the table. Frame up is based on this style of poker.

Wild card games involve a card or set of cards designated as wild cards. Wild cards can be used as any card in the deck. So, if 2s are considered wild, you can use that card as an ace, king or any other card.

Frame Up Game Play

In frame up, each player is dealt five cards. If you are playing with more than eight players, then deal only four cards to each player. There are eight community cards that form a frame in frame up. Three community cards are placed on each side of the frame. Also, one community card is placed at the top and one at the bottom. Four of the eight community cards are flipped - the top, the bottom and the two middle cards from the side of the frame. Before you flip the first four, there is a round of betting. Then you flip the other four, one at time, in the order of top left, bottom right, bottom left, top right. There is a round of betting before each of these cards is flipped. To make your hands in frame up, you must use two of your hole cards and three cards in the frame.
