Rules for Poker Games
5 Card Stud
In this variation of poker, the players will be dealt their cards in this
fashion: first card face down, next three cards face up, last card face down.
Two cards are dealt before the first round of betting, then for each card there
is a round of betting until all 5 cards are dealt to each player.
5 Card Draw
In this game, each player will receive 5 cards face down (so only they can see
them) then there is a round of betting. Then each player can draw up to 3 new
cards unless they hold an Ace, in which case they can draw 4.
5 Card Draw (J's or Better)
Same rules as 5 card draw here, only the player's hand must contain a pair of
Jacks or a higher ranked hand.
7 Card Stud
This poker variation is much like 5 Card Stud, only there are more rounds of
betting. Each player starts with the first two cards dealt face down (only you
may see them) and a third card face up, then a round of betting. The next 3
cards are dealt face up, each followed by a round of betting.
This game is like 7 card stud, with the exception that a high spade in the hole
(your down cards) wins half of the pot. The other half of the pot goes to the
person with the highest ranking hand.
This game is like 7 card stud, with the exception that a low spade in the hole (your
down cards) wins half of the pot. The other half of the pot goes to the person
with the highest ranking hand.
This poker variation is different than most. The player is dealt the first two
cards face down. The first player to the left of the dealer is called the
“Small Blind”. What this means is that they must place the minimum bet
without seeing their cards. The next player to the left is the “Big Blind”.
This player can look at their cards and from them on, betting goes on as normal.
When the betting comes back around to the “Small Blind” person, they can bet
normally. After the first two cards (they only 2 face down cards in the game)
comes the “Flop” which consists of 3 face-up cards, that everyone can use.
The next player then opens a round of betting. After this round of betting comes
another face-up card (another community card), followed by a round of betting,
and finally a “River” card which is a fifth and final card which is followed
by a final round of betting.
This poker variation is very closely related to Texas Hold-Em except you get
dealt 4 cards before the first round of betting. After the first 4 cards, is the
“Flop” in which there are 3 community cards dealt, followed by a round of
betting. Then two more cards will follow, each with a round of betting in
