Seven Card Stud Poker Rules

Seven Card Stud Poker is a popular game with poker players and one, which you will find being played in all of the poker rooms online. It is slightly more difficult for the beginner to be successful until they can read a hand of cards fairly quickly and can work out what the other players may be holding than Texas Hold Em but nonetheless is a great poker game to play.

The basic Seven Card Stud Poker Rules is to make the best 5-card hand using the players own three personal cards (hole cards) and the four cards dealt to each player face up.

Initially playing seven card stud all of the players must place an ante, the level is set by the card room, into the pot. Some poker rules vary this slightly and a small blind and a large blind are played instead.

The dealer then deals each player three cards, two hidden and one which all of the other players can see. Following this there will be a round of betting. During each betting round, the players will each have to Bet, Check, Fold or Raise. The dealer will then deal each player that has remained in the seven card stud game another card face up for everyone to see. Another round of betting follows this.

This continues until there are four cards dealt face up, whereby, after another round of betting the dealer deals each player with their last card. This card is dealt face down and hidden from the other players.

At this point all players have seven cards, 3 hidden and 4 in view of the other players. The last round of betting then takes place and after the betting has completed, the players cards are shown where it is determined who has the best hand. For the ranking and values of hands, see our "Valuing a Poker Hand" page in the menu at the right.

During the Showdown, the players use any of the seven cards dealt to make up the best hand of five cards.The player with the best hand then takes the value of the pot. If two players have the same value of hand then the pot is equally split.
