Short Explanation of the 7 Card Stud Rules

The game starts with all players putting a predetermined amount in the pot (the ante). Now every player is dealt 2 face-down cards and 1 face-up card. The player with the lowest face-up card starts the first betting round. The 4th card is dealt to the remaining players face-up. Another betting round starts with the player showing the highest cards. The 5th and 6th card are also dealt face-up, and after each card dealt the player with the highest cards showing starts a betting round. The last card (7th) dealt is a face-down card. The final betting round follows and the remaining players show their best poker hands. The best hand wins the pot.

Tip 2: The game Stud 8 or Better is a variation of 7 Card Stud Poker. The difference is that the pot is split between the high and low hand.
