You heard it right, poker has lots of variations and one of it is played on WSOP, the No-Limit Hold’em/Six Handed Championship.

The no-limit hold’em six handed poker game is commonly referred to as shorthanded poker which is steadily increasing in popularity, and is usually played by not exceeding six players on the table. This is a fast-paced poker game which quickly exposes the weaknesses of your opponents but your opponents may as well grasp your style and exploit it to get an edge over you. For you to excel in this game, you need to be aggressive because there’s more betting as well as raising with the weaker poker hands. Besides, be observant to the playing style of your opponents because the game takes turns quickly and every player takes advantage of every position possible. Lastly, you must initiate bluffing more frequently. You can get more chips in short table with bluffing. Now, it’s time to review the past winners of WSOP No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship.
