Betting structure of 7 Card Stud & 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo

7 Card Stud is played with an ante. An ante is a forced bet paid by all players before the cards are dealt. The only betting structure available for 7 Card Stud is Limit.

The play of 7 Card Stud & 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo

1. The ante is paid by all players. The ante is usually 1/10 of the small bet, for example $1 in a $10-$20 game.

2. Each player is dealt three cards. Two cards face down and one card faced up.

3. The first round of betting starts with the player that has the lowest visible card. The player can choose to place a full or half bet. For the first round, a full bet is the lower amount of the structure, for example $5 in $5-$10 game.

4. Each player is dealt a fourth card face up.
5. The second round of betting starts with the player that has the best visible hand. If two players have the same best hand, the suit will decide who starts the betting. The bet is still at the lower dollar figure of the structure. However, if a player has an open pair he has the option to place the higher bet in the structure, for example $10 in a $5-$10 game.

6. Each player is dealt a fifth card face up.

7. The third round of betting starts with the player that has the best visible hand. From this round onwards there are no more small bets. All bets are at the higher dollar figure of the structure.

8. Each player is dealt a sixth card face up.

9. The fourth round of betting starts with the player that has the best visible hand.

10. Each player is dealt their seventh and last card face down.

11. The last round of betting starts with the player that has the best visible hand.

12. Showdown – The player with the best hand wins the pot. The hand is combined using five of the seven cards that the player has. If all 8 players are still in the game when the seventh card is dealt, it is dealt face up in the centre of the table as a community card. This is because the cards in the deck would run out if each player is dealt a seventh card.
