Sure, you like hold'em, but how about trying the games that gave birth to it, stepping back into a golden age of poker where Stud and Draw were the games of choice?

Well this week is the perfect time to try, as PokerStars hosts Stud and Draw week. Running all this week through to Sunday, Stud and Draw week gives you various opportunities to go a bit old school, and play some of the most fascinating poker variants for cash and added prizes worth more than $80,000.

So how exactly can you take part? Well, there are six ways.

First you can take advantage of a Stud and Draw deposit bonus, with a free Sit & Go bundle worth $7.50.
There's Beat the Clock, with more than $50,000 to win in special Stud & Draw challenges, and cash game leader boards with another $20,000 in cash prizes to be won.

They'll be weekly tournaments with more than $7,500 in added tournaments cash prizes over the weekend, and Happy Hours where you can earn more than 50 per cent more VPPs and FPPs when you play Stud or Draw.

How will you find proof of what's taking place? On Twitch of course, where you can watch members of Team Pro Online stream their action from the Stud and Draw tables.

It should be the perfect time to either dust off your Stud or Draw skills and give it another try, or to learn each game from scratch. If you want to give it a try we recommend heading over to PokerSchoolOnline where you can learn all you need to know to get started.
