Poker Rules - 7-Card Stud Poker Rules
Traditional seven card stud is still widely played today. Stud is played
with 2-8 players. It is generally played with fixed-limit betting. After
everyone antes up, five betting rounds take place.
Ante: Seven card stud is generally played with an ante. Different stakes
games have different antes. For example, a $1 ante is common in a
$10-$20 game (10% of the small blind), but a $.25 ante is also common
in a $1-$2 game (25% of the small blind). Some places do not even play
with an ante at all.
3rd street: After everyone antes, all players are dealt two cards face
down (hole cards) and one exposed card. The person with the lowest
card must 'bring in' and is forced to bet half the small bet (if it is played
fixed-limit). Players can then, raise, call, or fold.
4th street: An exposed card is dealt to each player, followed a round of
betting. For fourth street onward, the person with the best exposed
hand begins the betting (i.e. if someone has AK exposed, another has
66 exposed, and someone else has 23 exposed, the person with 66
goes first because he has a pair of sixes.)
5th street: An exposed card is dealt to each player, followed a round of
betting. If the game is played in a fixed-limit format, this is where the big
bet would kick in.
6th street: An exposed card is dealt to each player, followed a round of
7th street: Each player is dealt a final hole card, followed by the final
round of betting.
If the game has 8 players and there aren't enough cards left in the deck
to deal each player a final hole card, a card is placed on the board and it
is considered 'shared' by all the players (similar to a community card in
