Seven Card Stud

Flop games such as Hold 'em and Omaha are the most popular games in online and brick-and-mortar poker rooms, but the old favorite seven-card Stud still has a solid following. Some players insist that seven-card Stud is a simpler game than Hold 'em, but we don't believe them. Yes, you can determine each player's possible hands from the cards they have showing, but you can do the same thing in Hold 'em. One skill you need in seven-card

Stud that you don't need in Hold 'em is remembering which cards have been thrown away and are no longer available to improve anyone's hand. When you play online, you can use a spreadsheet or other tool to keep track of these dead cards, so the burden isn't quite as onerous. If you plan to play seven-card Stud in a brick-and-mortar casino, where you can't use such aids, you should play online using only your memory, at least part of the time.
