California Hold'em, Inc., a company that created the new version of hold'em called, not surprisingly, California Hold'em, has signed a contract with Poker Royalty, LLC, a company that develops and markets poker-related brands as well as represents professional poker players like T.J Cloutier, Paul Darden, and Gus Hansen.

California Hold'em is played exactly the same as Texas hold'em, only with a few changes to the deck. Eight more cards are added to a California Hold'em deck, making for a deck of 60. The new cards are 11s and 12s, and they are not face cards. The news cards fall in logical order between the 10s and the jacks.

The second change to the deck is that the 10s and 11s in the deck do not have suits. They can be used like any other cards, except they cannot be used to make a flush or a straight flush. Since the 12s are suited, to have a royal flush, a player would have to hold a 12, a jack, a queen, a king and an ace of all the same suit.

The company claims that by adding more cards to the deck, the impact of player skill increases. The addition of eight cards to a deck makes it that much harder for a player to hit his gutshot straight, for example. "Coin flips" between pocket pairs and overcards also change because of the eight new cards. People holding pocket pairs have a slightly better advantage in California Hold'em simply because there are more cards in the deck.
