7 Card Stud High Low

There is an overall bet limit for each game and a bet limit scale for each of the rounds. The first bet is made by the player with the lowest value face-up card as their third-street (explained below). They post the low-limit (50cent in a 50cent/$1 limit game) bet as their Ante and betting proceeds them in a clock-wise rotation around the table. The following round, forth-street, has a similar betting system other than now betting is started by the player with the highest value face-up hand and he must bet greater than or equal to the betting low-limit (50cent in a 50cent/$1 limit game. For the following three rounds, 5th, 6th and 7th, the betting is upped to the high-limit ($1 in a 50cent/$1 limit game).

Aim
To construct the greatest value high five card hand and/or the greatest value low five card hand. This is done by using your seven cards, if you are to make it through to 7th Street the final round, of which four will be face-up and three face-down. The best high-hand is judged in exactly the same way as in standard 7 Card Stud, whilst the best low hand is made by having all five cards below the eight card (eight or better), where the Ace may be used as the lowest card. The pot is divided and half is awarded to the person with the strongest low-hand and half to the person with the strongest high-hand. If this is the same player who holds both of these the whole pot is won by them (referred to as scooping the pot). If there is no player with a qualifying low-hand then the player with the strongest high-hand again scoops the pot.

Playing 7 card Stud (Eight or Better):

  • In the first round each player is dealt three cards, two of which are face-down and the third is dealt face-up. The third face-up card is commonly referred to as Third-Street or the door card. Betting (the bring in bet) is started by the player who has the lowest value face-up card and proceeds them in a clock-work fashion. They must post half of the low-limit (25cent in a 50cent/$1 limit game) bet as their Ante or can raise to the full low-limit bet (25cent in a 50cent/$1 limit game) with betting proceeding them in a clock-work fashion.
  • In the second round, called 4th street, a forth card is dealt face-up to each player. Whoever has the highest face-up pair is the first to commence the next round of betting. If there is a tie in the value of these two cards the player closest to the dealer in anti-clockwork rotation is to start the round. This player may choose to raise, fold, or check and play proceeds him in a clockwork fashion. All betting must be higher or equal to the agreed bet low-limit unless the payer who has the greatest value face-up cards possesses two pairs then they have the option to raise the low limit bet or the highest limit bet. The low-limit bet would be (50cent in a 50cent/$1 limit game) and the high-limit bet would equal ($1 in a 50cent/$1 limit game).
  • The third round, called 5th Street, sees a fifth card dealt face-up to each player. Again the player with the highest face up hand chooses to call, fold or raise first. However now the betting is raised according to the high limit bet size and is continued over the next two rounds.
  • In the forth round, called 6th Street, a sixth card is dealt face up to each player and play proceeds as in 5th Street.
  • In the fifth and final round, called 7th Street, the last card is dealt face-down to each player. Betting proceeds as in the last two rounds. If there were to be too many players in the game, resulting in a lack of cards to carry out this final card deal, one card would be dealt as a community card face up which is available to be used to the whole table. What is referred to as a showdown occurs between the remaining players still in the game. The last player to bet will start the show of hands.
