Seven Card Stud

Three cards are dealt to each player, two face down and one face up. Depending on the betting rules, either the low card or the high card on board starts the action. When there are two low (or high) cards of the same rank, either the card of the lowest ranking suit (clubs, then diamonds, then hearts) or the card closest to the dealer's left starts the action, once again depending on the betting rules in effect.

After the first round of betting, a fourth card is dealt face up, and now the high hand on board starts a second round of betting. (If there are two identical high hands, the one closest to the dealer's left begins.)

A fifth and then a sixth card are dealt face up with a round of betting after each. A seventh card is dealt face down, followed by a final round of betting. In each case the high hand on board starts the action. In the showdown the best high hand wins.
