7 CARD HI-LO

7 Card Stud Hi/Lo is a variant of Stud Hi.
At the showdown, the pot is split between the holder of the highest hand and 속 holder of the lowest hand. If the low hand qualifies.
In general 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo is a variant of 7 card stud. The betting, ante, and bring-in are the same as in 7 Card Stud. Just as in the high version of 7 Card Stud, each player starts with two hole cards and one upcard. There are then three more rounds of upcards, with betting after each card, and a final downcard, followed by a final betting round. Each player ends up with seven cards, four face up and three face down. At the showdown, the pot is split between the holder of the highest hand and the holder of the lowest hand, if the low hand qualifies.
Qualifier and making Low Hand To qualify for a low hand, you must have five distinct cards (no pairs), with no card higher than 8. Straights and flushes do not count against you.

The best 5 card low hand is A-2-3-4-5 of any suit. The hand is "ranked" by starting with the highest low card. 8-5-3-2-1 would be considered a 8-low, and would lose to 7-6-3-2-1, a 7-low. If two players have low hands with the same highest card, the next highest card determines the winner.

High and Low In 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo, each player forms a high hand and, if possible, a qualifying low hand, using any five of seven cards. Both the high hand combination and the low hand combination can use the same set of cards, but they don't have to.

As in 7 Card Stud, aces play both high and low. You may use an ace as a high card for one hand, and as a low card for another.

Betting Structure & Another Feature Like as 7 Card Stud Hi, the first two betting rounds are always at the small bet, and the last three always at the big bet.

The only difference in betting is that 4th street does not offer a betting increment increase regardless of any pairs on the board. p>

LOW RANKING

Five Low, or Wheel The Five, Four, Three, Deuce and Ace.
In the event of a tie: All Five-high hands split the pot.
Six Low Any five unpaired cards with the highest card being a Six.
In the event of a tie: The lower second-highest ranking card wins the pot. Thus 6,4,3,2,A defeats 6,5,4,2,A. If necessary, the third-highest, fourth-highest and fifth-highest cards in the hand can be used to break the tie.
Seven Low Any five unpaired cards with the highest card being a Seven. In the event of a tie: The lower second-highest ranking card wins the pot. If necessary, the third-highest, fourth-highest and fifth-highest cards in the hand can be used to break the tie.
Seven Low Any five unpaired cards with the highest card being an Eight.
In the event of a tie: The lower second-highest ranking card wins the pot. If necessary, the third-highest, fourth-highest and fifth-highest cards in the hand can be used to break the tie.
An Eight Low is the weakest hand that qualifies for low in Omaha Hi/Lo and Stud Hi/Lo. However in Razz, there is no such ‘qualifier’ and the lowest hand will always win the pot, even if it is a nine low, queen low, or even a pair!
