In an effort to increase their offerings and capture more of the poker market, Full Tilt Poker introduced 5 variants of Draw poker in their lobby. Draw games involve players having the opportunity to replace cards from their hand by drawing new cards from the deck.

Competing sites have offered Draw poker for a while, especially PokerStars who has some good sized $1000-$2000 Limit Triple Draw 2-7 Lowball games.

The five types of draw poker games that Full Tilt Poker added today:

  • 5-Card Draw: From the kitchen table straight to your computer screen, this classic game features one draw round and is played for the high. 
  • 2-7 Triple Draw: One of the most popular draw games, 2-7 Triple Draw features three draw rounds to make the best possible low hand. The "nut hand" is 7-5-4-3-2 unsuited. 
  • 2-7 Single Draw: Also known as Kansas City Lowball, this game is similar in nature to 2-7 Triple Draw, but only features one draw round. 
  • A-5 Triple Draw: Another draw game played for the low, A-5 Triple draw differs from 2-7 games in that the Ace is always considered a low card rather than a high card, and straights and flushes are ignored. The best possible hand is 5-4-3-2-A. 
  • Badugi: A unique draw game of Asian origin, Badugi is played using only four pocket cards. There are three draw rounds, and the goal of the game is to make a low hand using four different cards of all different suits. 

Draw variants will be available as ring games and in various tournament formats, including a 10-game mix tournament. Look for the new Draw option available in the Standard View browse area to find the game you're looking for."

In addition, Full Tilt Poker made some improvements to the FTP Hand Replayer, allowing you to take even more control when reviewing your previous hands.
