The most famous poker game in the Stud Poker family, 7 Card Stud has enjoyed a long and popular run in the casinos of Las Vegas and Atlantic City. While it may not be as consistently popular as other games such as Texas Hold’em or Caribbean Stud, 7 Card Stud continues to be played widely and aggressively around the world.
As a poker game, 7 Card Stud is similar to the majority of other poker games, but it in a different light. Unlike Texas Hold’em or Caribbean Stud, this game pairs the highest card in the hand on the table with the lowest card in the hand, except where the lowest card in the hand is equivalent to the highest card in the pair.
A good example of this occurs when the player receives Q-J-4. The player is then dealt 8-Q-4. This is then followed by a round of betting. The final card, J-4, is then dealt face up in the middle of the table and the player checks his hand, making the decision to call or fold.
There are six possible combinations of this hand: Q-J-3; Q-J-2; Q-J-A; K-Q-5; K-Q-2; and A-K-3. The player must choose the highest card, or “high card,” from each of the possible combinations and the one card that is placed in the middle is called the “afapoker.” If a player does not choose a low card, then the player must wait for the next card to be dealt so that the player can choose a new low card. This continues on until the player chooses a low card, at which point the high card is compared with the new low card and the best hand is determined.
The winner in this game is the player who has the best 5-card hand. If 2 or more players have the same hand, then the pot is split equally between the players.
Note: In Seven Card Stud, the Ace is placed in the low hand and the 6th card is dealt in the top hand.
How to Play Seven Card Stud?
To begin, all players are dealt three cards face down. Three round of betting follows the initial round. After the betting, each player is dealt a fourth card face up.
The first and third card are face down and the fourth face up. This is followed by another round of betting. The fifth and sixth card are also dealt face up, followed by another betting round. The final card is also dealt face up and the final betting round commences.
After the final round of betting, the cards are turned face up to illustrate flop. The flop is the group of cards in your hand that are being used to help you make the best hand. After the flop, a new betting round takes place with the same rules as the first round of betting.
After the final round of betting, the cards are turned face up to start the final round of betting. This is the point where players have made their hand and indicate the strength of their hand in 5 different hand positions. The player with the best hand wins the pot. The hand qualifiers, High Card, Premium Hand, and Squeeze Play are used during the betting round. If the player has a qualifying hand, he may bet the amount bet, raise, or fold. However, the player may not check, neither can he check during the showdown.
