Stud Poker

Poker has been one of the most well-known and popular games for many years now. The fact that it is available for everyone, right from the young kid to the middle-aged people, means that this game has always been in great demand. Poker is a multi-table game in which players put forth money into an envelope provided by the dealer, who then checks the money and counts out the number of poker chips on the table as the player bets.


The game is played in an even fashion, with each player getting five cards face up, the dealer then dealing seven cards to each table and making the wild card. In a seven-card stud poker game, the player gets to choose from two pairs, namely, a pair of your two cards and a wild card. If a player has a straight set or a flush, he gets to choose from that pair. Once all the players have had their turn, then the dealer reveals the cards and calls out the number of poker chips in the pot, which are printed on the cards. Players in the game now wait for the pot to be raised, at which point it is possible for any player to call out the amount of poker chips in the pot, hence, raising the pot. A player can bet in the pot only when he has reached at least one card to win the pot.

Another variation of stud poker involves the draw poker. The draw poker, also known as “deal draw”, is where the hand is not dealt five cards but instead the dealer draws one card for each player. If any player has a set, he gets to draw additional cards. If the player has a flush or better, then the dealer draws for the player and adds that player’s bet to the pot. In a face off, the dealer deals five cards face down and then draws one card for each player. Once all players have had their turn, a blindfold is thrown over the cards and a single judge will oversee the deal, which is usually an easier proposition than the traditional way of playing stud poker.
