Players in stud poker are dealt with a certain amount of cards to start with. One card is dealt every time a betting round is completed up to the point that a certain number of cards have been dealt.
Five Card Stud is mostly a game of HIGH CARDS and PAIRS. Don’t play for straights and flushes unless you have three cards to a straight flush on third street, or it looks like you might luck into a straight or flush on fourth.

Players and Cards

The Play
The sequence of events is as follows (as usual the cards are dealt clockwise one at a time):

  1. All players place an ante in the pot.
  2. Each player is dealt one card face down and one face up, and there is a betting round.
  3. Each player is dealt a third card face up. There is a second betting round.
  4. Each player is dealt a fourth card face up. There is a third betting round.
