H.O.R.S.E. is a form of poker commonly played at the high stakes tables of casinos. It consists of rounds of play cycling among: ⁕Texas Hold 'em, ⁕Omaha hi-low split-eight or better, ⁕Razz, ⁕Seven card Stud, and ⁕Seven card stud hi-low split-Eight or better. H.O.R.S.E. is a limit game, including hold 'em. However, in some tournament situations, the final table is no-limit hold 'em. C.H.O.R.S.E adds Chowaha or Crazy Pineapple to the mix. This is convenient at such team events as BARGE, when it helps to have as many flop games as stud games. C.H.O.R.S.E.L adds lowball. T.H.O.R.S.E.H.A. is another 8-Game Mix which includes more games than most other mixed poker games. PokerStars started offering this game in 2008. It consists of limit 2-7 Triple Draw, limit Texas hold 'em, limit Omaha Hi-Lo, limit Razz, limit Seven-card Stud, limit Seven card Stud Hi-Lo, no limit Texas hold 'em and pot limit Omaha. 10-Game, the latest variation on the mixed poker games, overtook T.H.O.R.S.E.H.A. in the extent of its game inclusion. Launched by Full Tilt Poker in November 2010, 10-Game includes Limit Hold 'em, Limit Stud Hi/Lo, Pot Limit Omaha Hi, Limit 2-7 Triple Draw, Limit Razz, No Limit Hold ‘em, Limit Omaha Hi/Lo, Limit Stud Hi, No Limit 2-7 Single Draw and Limit Badugi.
