Seven Card Stud Poker
Seven Card Stud is not played with community cards as with Texas Holdem and Omaha. Every Player instead receives two pocket cards and one open card before the first round of betting has started, followed by three open cards (one round of betting before each card) and finally one last hidden card. After the seventh and last card (three hidden and four open) the last round of betting is finished and the player with the best five card combination wins the pot.
Beginning to play
Seven Card Stud is played with Antes unlike Texas Holdem and Omaha’s blinds. The Ante is a pre-agreed upon amount that has to be in the pot before the cards are dealt if you wish to be in the round.
First round of betting
When all the antes are paid each player receives two cards face down and one open card.
These are the players’ private cards. Because Seven Card Stud is not played with a dealer button the dealer is decided by the player with the lowest card on his hand to start the bring-in. A bring-in is a forced bet the size of half the minimum bet. If the players have the same value on their lowest cards the cards get ranked according to suit which are ranked from strongest to weakest Spade-Heart-Diamond-Clubs. The round of betting commences with the player to the let of the bring-in who can call if he chooses to (player bets the same amount as the bring-in did), raise the pot or fold. The first round of betting is completed when all the players have bet the same amount in the pot or folded.
The second round of betting
When the first round of betting is finished anther open card gets dealt to every player.
As opposed to the first betting round where the player with the lowest card starts to bet, the player with the highest face value on his card now starts the round of betting either by checking or betting. If any of the players have pair with their open cards they are allowed to (in the seven card stud limit version) make the maximum bet. The second round of betting is done when all the players have bet the same amount in the pot, or checked all the way round or folded.
The third round of betting
When the second round of betting is completed another card is dealt to each player.
The same rules apply as above for who begins the round of betting. The third round of betting is completed when every player has bet the same amount in the pot, checked all the way around or folded.
The fourth round of betting
When the third round of betting is completed another card gets dealt out to every player still in the game. Same rules apply as above as to who begins to bet and the fourth round of betting in Seven Card Stud is completed when every player has contributed the same amount to the pot, checked all the way around or folded.
The fifth round of betting
When the fourth round of betting is completed a last card is dealt out. This card is dealt face down exactly like the two previous cards. It is still the player with the highest visible card that starts the round of betting.
