Most people know the basic rules of poker. They can tell you what beats what. However, there are some poker games that follow a slightly different set of rules.

The first variation is a high/low split. This variation allows both the highest and the lowest hands to win the game. The pot is then split between the pair. The lowball variation is very similar to the high/low split. Instead of having two winners, the lowball has one winner. The winner is the person with the lowest hand.
Variations in poker rules include games that allow cardholders to trade cards to each other. Anaconda is one type of poker game that uses this variation in the rules. In addition to trading cards, another variation of the rules allows cardholders to buy extra cards. This is done by placing more money into the pot. In different variations, players can buy multiple cards by adding money to the pot.
One of the most common variations in poker rules is the use of wild cards. Wild cards can be any of the cards in the deck including the jokers. For example, dealers can name one eyed jacks wild, or all 7's can be wild.
Other variations include the popular game of Texas hold'em where community cards are shared by everyone playing. In Texas hold'em you can use any combination of the community cards and the cards in your hand. Omaha hold'em is very similar to Texas hold'em in that you use community cards. However, it is different because you are dealt 4 cards instead of 2. Omaha hold'em is also more strict because you have to use exactly 2 of your cards and three of the community cards.
