Where to play Hold'em 6+? Poker rooms that provide Short Deck Poker in 2020
Short deck poker is becoming very popular, and players from all around the world are studying the strategy of Holdem 6+. The main difference between this type of poker and Texas Hold'em is that such cards as 2,3,4,5 are removed from the deck.

Therefore, the range of combinations in Short Deck Poker is not the same as in classical poker. The lowest straight consists of A-6-7-8-9.
