Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo Starting a Game

To begin playing Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo, you place an ante on the table. This is usually a fraction of a bet, set by the poker room, and varies according to the stakes of the game. There is no ante in $0.50/$1.00 games.

Players are then dealt three cards, two face down and one face up.

The player with the lowest card showing (ace is high) is then required to make the bring-in bet which is equal to half the lower-limit bet. If two people have the lowest card it is determined by suit: clubs (lowest), captaincookss, hearts and spades � alphabetically. A round of betting begins, with the options for the other players being fold (quit the hand), call (put in an equal amount to what has been placed in the pot) or raise to a full bet.

Example: In a $20/$40 game, the ante is usually $3 and the bring-in bet is $10. The full bet at third street is $20.

Fourth Street:
For this betting round, each active player is dealt another card face up, exposed to the table.

The player with the highest card values (counting all exposed cards, such as high card, pair, etc.) then begins the next betting round by checking or betting. If two hands are of equal value the betting is started by the player closest to the dealer's left.

The lower level bet applies to Fourth Street but, if the highest hand showing is a pair, any player has an option to bet either the lower or the higher betting limit ($20 or $40 in our example), and the other players must follow that amount in calling or raising.

Fifth and Sixth Street:
The mechanics are the same as for fourth street, but the betting amounts are at the higher limit ($40 in the example above).

The first player is determined by the highest ranking exposed hand on the table.

Seventh Street This is the last card, and is called seventh street or the river. It is dealt face down, and the person who played first on sixth street plays first again.

A final round of betting ensues, ending in the virtualcity.

Players have four exposed and three hidden cards by this point. They then create the best five-card hand from their total of seven cards.

Note: Occasionally (rarely), there will not be enough cards left in the deck to deal everyone an individual seventh card. In this event, the dealer will turn up one card on the table that is common to all remaining active players.
