Five card draw is one of the oldest variations of Draw poker and was being played long before the easier games like Omaha and Holdem. The main aim of this game is to have the best hand of five high cards. Unlike many other games 5 card draw is based on blinds not antes, the blinds are placed before the game can commence. Once this has been taken care of players will then be given five pocket cards, then the first round of bets will take place. Players may then decide whether they want to keep their cards or change them for new ones. After this more bets will take place and then the showdown occurs where the winner will be determined. Five card draw must be one of the quicker games of Poker.

2-7 triple draw is quite different to 5 card draw because it has three rounds where players need to discover the best low five card hand in order to win the game. Flushes, straights and pairs count against a players hand and Aces are always considered high in this game. As in 5 card draw blinds are used in this game too, followed by five pocket cards, a round of betting, followed by the opportunity to change their cards or to keep them. Another betting round will take place followed by another draw and betting round before the final draw and betting round takes place. Then the showdown takes place. 2-7 single draw is similar to this game except it is based on one draw not three and uses both blinds and antes.

A-5 triple draw is rather similar to that of 2-7 triple draw as the intention is to get the best five card low hand. Flushes and straights do not count towards the hand and the Ace is always a low card. This game also uses blinds and the rest of the game is the same as 2-7 triple draw.
