How To Play Seven Card Stud Poker
Seven Card Stud Poker is now the most popular form of stud poker in the world, having overtaken the more purist five card version. Players must use any five cards out of the seven they are dealt to make the best poker hand. There are five rounds of betting and there are no community cards. As there are no shared cards in stud there's a lot more chasing compared to Holdem. In the video below Poker Stars share some of their top tips for playing 7 Card Stud.
A good tip to remember is that if you kick off with a weak hand in stud then that hand will stay weak until the end. As mentioned in the video above don't waste your money chasing average hands. Stick to playing premium hands and keep an eye on the cards that are visible - they can help you make good choices about your own cards.
You can also play 7 CardStud Poker Hi-Lo at all the featured poker rooms. The objective of 7-Card Stud Hi Lo is to win either by having the highest hand or the lowest hand at the showdown, or by forcing all the other to fold before the showdown. The pot is split between the high winner and low winner!
