how to play 7 card stud
Possibly the most well known poker game in the world 7 Card Stud is the standard poker game played in most households throughout the world. Players are dealt seven cards throughout the course of the hand, Players then use any 5 of their 7 cards to make their best possible hand to determine the winner.
Before a game of Seven Card Stud starts, all players ante a nominal amount. Each player is dealt two hidden hole cards (which only u can see) and one exposed card (which other players can see). (.see pic). The player with the lowest exposed card is the (bring-in), and is forced to make a wager of either a half a small bet or a full small bet (for example, either $1 or $2 in a $2/$4 game). Action continues clockwise around the table until betting is complete for the round.
Note: For the purposes of determining the bring-in, ties in card rank are broken by suit, with the order being spades, hearts, diamonds and clubs (in descending order).
After the first round of betting, Each player now receives an exposed card, called "Fourth Street". The first player to act is the individual whose exposed cards have the highest poker value. This player may either check or bet. If no player shows a pair amongst his or her exposed cards, the bet will be a small bet ($2 in a $2/$4 game). If any player shows a pair, the betting can be opened for a big bet ($4 in a $2/$4 game).
Each player now receives another exposed card, called "Fifth Street". Again, the first player to act is the individual whose exposed cards have the highest poker value.
Note: Starting on Fifth Street and for the rest of the hand, all bets are in big bet increments ($4 in a $2/$4 game).
Each player now receives another exposed card, called "Sixth Street". Again, the first player to act is the individual whose exposed cards have the highest poker value.
Each player now receives a seventh and final card, which is dealt face-down and known only to the player to whom the card is dealt. The first player to act is the individual whose exposed cards have the highest poker value. If there is more than one remaining player when the final betting round is complete, the last bettor or raiser shows his or her cards. If there was no bet on the final round, the player whose exposed cards have the highest poker value shows his or her cards first.
The player with the best five-card hand wins the pot. In the event of identical hands, the pot will be equally divided between the players with the best hands. After the pot is awarded, a new game of Seven Card Stud is ready to begin. To sum it up quickly. You are basically dealt 7 cards in 5 rounds of betting and you bet on each round calling or raising based on the cards in your hand.. and your educated guess of the possible hands in your opponents hands, based on the cards that are exposed to you.
