It can be said that most players learned about Short Deck Hold’em about 3 years ago when Phil Ivey and Tom Dwan told about this game. Since then, this kind of poker is beginning to gain more and more popularity among players. Some online poker rooms introduced this game fairly quickly, and some decided to take a closer look. Rumor has it that in the near future even a giant like Pokerstars will launch it. At the moment, we provide access to the game in the Poker♠king application, which creates 6+ tables ranging from micro to the high stakes.
