Razz Poker

Razz Poker is a fairly new Poker variant in which the aim of the game is to simply get dealt the best low poker hand and obviously still be in the game at the showdown part of the game

All of the players will be dealt seven playing cards from the deck by the Dealers and the best five-card low hand possible for each player is used to determine the winner.

You need to be aware that unlike 7 Card Stud or Omaha Poker, there is no eight or better ruling in play for you to take the pot!
