Seven Card Stud Poker

Seven Card Stud Poker is not as popular as some Poker games but it can still e found in many online Poker sites. The game can be played with a minimum of two players and a maximum of eight players.

To start a Poker game of Seven Card Stud, players need to place an ante on the table. This is often just a small amount of the bet amount and the Poker Room you are playing at will set this limit. But on low value games such as $0.50/$1.00 no Ante is required to be placed onto the Poker table.

Once the Antes are in place then all Players in the game will then be dealt three cards, two will be dealt face down and one dealt face up.

The player who has the lowest card (but be aware that an Ace is high not low) then has to place onto the table what is termed the bring-in bet and this wager is equal to half the lower-limit bet.

Should it be found that two of the Players both be showing the lowest card it will be then be determined by suit, with clubs being the lowest then diamonds then hearts and then spades.

Next a betting round will commence with the options for the other players being that they are permitted to fold their hand or call their hand or even raise their bet to a full bet.

Next will commence what is terms the Fourth Street and all of the Players still left in the game will get dealt another card face up.

The player who has the highest card values showing is then obliged to start the next betting round by checking or betting. Should two hands be both of equal value the betting is started by the player closest to the dealer's left.

After the Fourth Street then the Fifth and Sixth Street sections of the game commence and the rules are much the same as fourth street, but the betting amounts are at the higher limit.

Seventh Street is when the last card will be dealt, it is always dealt face down, and the person who played first on sixth street plays first again. After this then one more final round of betting begins ending in the showdown.
