Poker Beginners Guide: The Deal

The deal and betting process in Seven-Card Stud is identical to that of Seven-Card Stud Hi/Lo. The only difference is that in the latter game there is no double bet in the case of an open pair on fourth street.

The showdown in Seven-Card Stud Hi/Lo is essentially the same as Omaha Hi/Lo in the sense that the pot is split equally between the high and low ends of the pot. As we have seen, both games use an Eight qualifier for the low end.
