Seven Card Stud Poker

Seven Card Stud is a traditional, yet highly demanding form of poker, that keeps even the most seasoned players coming back for more.

The Game

The game requires players to 'buy in' chips when they sit at a table. The 'buy-in' is equivalent to ten times the lowest bet limit. For example, on a 1/2 table, the 'buy-in' would be 10. Also, unlike other popular online poker games such as Texas Hold'em, that uses blinds to begin a game, Seven Card Stud requires an upfront 'ante' to be placed by each player at the start of the game.

Each player receives 7 cards the winner is the best 5-card hand from the 7 available cards according to standard poker hand rankings (see the rankings chart here).

The game is split into five individual betting rounds. Two down cards (Hole Cards) and one up card (Door Card) are dealt to each player. The player with the lowest card by suit begins the first round of betting and is forced to place of half the lowest bet limit - with an option of making a full bet (the suit order is as follows: highest to lowest - spades, hearts, diamonds, clubs).

Players are then dealt a further 3 face up cards in which a betting round follows each deal. These rounds are known as fourth, fifth and sixth street. The fourth and final face up card is known as the 'river'. Unlike the first round of betting, the player with the highest hand would start the betting on the subsequent rounds. The first 2 rounds would bet the lower limit, whilst the final three rounds would bet the higher limit amount. The only exception is when a player shows a pair on the fourth street (2nd up card) in which they have the option of betting the lower or higher limit. If the player chooses to bet the higher limit at this point, all subsequent bets must be of the higher limit

Most poker rooms offer one bet per round with 3 raises in which the final raise is capped

The player with the highest 5 card hand wins. In the case of a tie, the pot is shared. If the table is full and all the player remain by the river card (final up card), there will not be enough cards left in the pack. In this situation, the final card is dealt up and used as a 'community' card.
