Five Card Stud Poker Rules

Five Card Stud used to be the most popular poker game around but has been overtaken somewhat by both Texas Hold Em and Seven Card Stud Poker. It is the game that most people who haven't played poker have heard about and although not as popular as it used to be, is still interesting to play online and you can still find a good game lurking about.

The object of the Five Card Stud Poker is to make the best five card hand using the players own personal five cards, one which the other players cannot see (hole card.) To start an ante is placed on the tablee. The ante amount will se set by the card room. Often you will find that there is no ante amount to be played when the betting limits are low.

During each betting round in five card stud, the players will each have to Bet, Check, Fold or Raise. See our Common Poker Terms page if you are unsure of what this means.

Each Poker Player will be dealt two cards. One hole (hidden) card and one visible card.

Normally, the five card stud player with the lowest card showing must bring-in and start off the betting.

After the first round of betting, a second visible card is dealt to all poker players at the table. Another round of betting follows. This continues until each Player has one pocket card and four visible cards. This is why it's called five card stud.

After the last visible card is dealt to each, a final round of betting follows. After this, the remaining players all display their pocket cards. The highest hand wins the money. Not a lot to it is there? Five card stud poker is easy to learn after all.

During the betting rounds, play close attention to the other players visible cards and as soon as you see that your hand cannot win, Fold. Poker is about limiting your losses as well as winning.

If you can see that your hand cannot be beaten, raise the stakes, quite often some players will continue until the bitter end chasing their money. Don't feel sorry for them, take the money, they would do the same to you.
