How to Play 7 Card Stud

stud poker in which each player receives seven cards dealt two facedown and one faceup on the first round, one faceup on each of the next three rounds, and one facedown on the last round with betting following each round and a final showdown in which a player selects five of his cards as his poker hand.

How to Play

The game begins by everyone placing an initial bet into the pot. For casual games, this is normally a dollar or two. Play then proceeds to the following five rounds: Round One, 4th Street, 5th Street, 6th Street, and River

 

Round One

The dealer then passes out two faced down cards to every player. These cards are called the “holes”. Next the dealer passes out a faced-up card to every player. This card is called the “door”. After the door is given to everyone, a round of betting occurs called the “bring-in”. The bring-in begins with the player who has the lowest valued card and proceeds clockwise to their left. Ties for the lowest valued card are broken by the suits alphabetically (e.g. the 2 of Clubs outranks the 2 of Spades). At any round of betting, players can decide to fold their hand and lose any bets they made in the pot.

4th Street

The dealer passes out a fourth card faced-up to any remaining players. A round of betting occurs starting with the player who received the highest 4th street or has the highest hand and proceeding clockwise to their left.

5th Street

The dealer passes out a fifth card faced-up to any remaining players. A round of betting occurs starting with the player who received the highest 5th street or has the highest hand and proceeding clockwise to their left.

6th Street

The dealer passes out a sixth card faced-up to any remaining players. A round of betting occurs starting with the player who received the highest 6th street or has the highest hand and proceeding clockwise to their left.

River

In the 5th rounds, the dealer passes out a seventh final card faced-down to any remaining players.

Each player then views their three faced-down cards and makes the best 5 card hand they can out of their seven cards without revealing it to the other players. A round of betting occurs starting with the player who has the highest visible hand and proceeding clockwise to their left. Once the round of betting ends, the remaining players reveal their hands and the pot goes to the player with the highest.
