Hi Lo Stud Poker - 7 Card Poker Online
7 Card Stud Hi/Lo Game Rules
7 Card Stud Hi/Lo is a popular, well-known form of poker. It is played with up to eight players at the table.
This is the same game as regular 7 Card Stud, but the high hand and the lowest hand split the pot. However, the lowest hand needs 5 individual cards that are a ranking of 8 or less.
For example: 8 – 6 – 4 – 3- A The “best” low hand is 5 – 4 -3 – 2 – A
Each player receives a total of 7 cards (3 down cards and 4 up cards).
The object of the game is to create the best 5 – card poker hand out of the seven cards.
The dealer will deal the first two cards face down to each player and the third card face up beginning with the player sitting to their immediate left.
There is then a betting round. This is a forced bet for the player showing the lowest card.
The fourth card is dealt face up to each player, followed by a round of betting. If there is an open pair showing: every player has the option of betting twice the structured bet amount. For this betting round only, the option begins with the player showing the highest hand.
The fifth card is dealt face up to each player, followed by a round of betting.
The sixth card is dealt face up to each player, followed by a round of betting.
The seventh card is dealt face down to each player remaining in the hand, followed by the final round of betting.
- The Showdown! Each player in the hand will turn their four cards face up on the table. The dealer will read aloud all the hands shown at this time and award half the pot to the highest 5-card poker hand and half the pot to the lowest hand if a low hand qualifies with an 8 or better. If no low hand qualifies, the whole pot goes to the high hand.
