Seven Card Stud (7 Stud) – a classic kind of poker, which appeared earlier than the well-known Omaha. A distinctive feature of the Stud is that players receive at the table, not two, but seven cards each, five of which should make the most potent high combination.
Traditionally, 7 Studs are played with Situs Joker Gaming bets, i.e., the size of bets is set in advance, but other options are possible, for example, Pot-Limit, although now they are practically not found.
Seven Card Stud Combinations
In this type of poker, each player at the end of the deal receives seven cards: three in the dark (only the player sees them) and four in the open (everyone sees them). But it should be remembered that combinations are made up of 5 cards, not seven. For example, you have in your hands A Hearts A Spades 3 Crests 4 Crests 3 Tambourines 6 Spades 6 Tambourines, your combination is not three pairs, but only two of the five best cards: AchormsApiki 6 Diamonds 6 Spades 4 Crests.
At this stage, each player receives one more open card. But here, the player with the most potent combination of two free cards is the first to go. If you have two 9Bubny8Worms cards open, and the opponent has 5Kresti7Kresti, then you are the one to go, because the 9-high combination is higher than the 7-high one.

Showdown and determination of the winner
Opening a card begins with the player who made the last bit in hand. If there were no bets on Seventh Street, then the participant must open the cards on the first box, and then clockwise.
The winner is the one who has collected the best five-card high combination. If several players have received the same winning combinations, the bank is divided between them. Then a new distribution begins.
