TEXAS HOLD ’EM
In Hold ’Em, players receive two down cards as their personal hand (hole cards), after which there is a round of betting. Three board cards are turned simultaneously (called the “flop”) and another round of betting occurs. The next two board cards are turned one at a time, with a round of betting after each card. The board cards are community cards, and a player may use any five-card combination from among the board and personal cards. A player may even use all of the board cards and no personal cards to form a hand (play the board). A dealer button is used. The usual structure is to use two blinds, but it is possible to play the game with one blind, multiple blinds, an ante, or combination of blinds plus an ante.
OMAHA HIGH/LOW 8 OR BETTER
Omaha is often played high-low split. The player may use any combination of two hole cards and three board cards for the high hand and another (or the same) combination of two hole cards and three board cards for the low hand.
SEVEN CARD STUD
Seven-card stud is played with a starting hand of two down cards and one up card dealt before the first betting round. There are then three more up cards and a final down card, with a betting round after each, for a total of five betting rounds on a deal played to the showdown. The best five-card poker hand wins the pot. In all fixed-limit games, the smaller bet is wagered for the first two betting rounds, and the larger bet is wagered for the last three betting rounds (on the fifth, sixth, and seventh cards). If there is an open pair on fourth street, any player has the option of making the smaller or larger bet. When there is a pair on forth street during spread limit, the larger bet can then be bet on every street. Deliberately changing the order of your up cards in a stud game is improper because it unfairly misleads the other players.
RAZZ (SEVEN CARD STUD LOW)
The lowest-ranking hand wins the pot. Aces are low only, and two aces are the lowest pair. The format is similar to seven-card stud high, except the high card (aces are low) is required to make the forced bet on the first round, and the low hand acts first on all subsequent rounds. Straights and flushes have no ranking, so the best possible hand is 5-4-3-2-A (a wheel). An open pair does not affect the betting limit.
RULES OF RAZZ
1. All Seven Card stud rules apply in razz except as otherwise noted.
2. The lowest hand wins the pot. Aces are low, and straights and flushes have no effect on the low value of a hand. The best possible hand is 5-4-3-2-A.
3. The highest card by suit starts the action with a forced bet. The low hand acts first on all subsequent rounds. If the low hand is tied, the first player clockwise from the dealer starts the action.
4. Fixed-limit games use the lower limit on third and fourth streets and the upper limit on subsequent streets. An open pair does not affect the limit.
POT LIMIT OMAHA
Pot Limit Omaha is similar to Hold ’Em in using a three-card flop on the board, a fourth board card, and then a fifth board card. Each player is dealt four hole cards (instead of two) at the start. In order to make a hand, a player must use precisely two hole cards with three board cards. The betting is the same as in Hold ’Em, using a pre-flop, flop, turn, and river betting rounds. At the showdown, the entire four-card hand should be shown to receive the pot. The betting is pot limit meaning a player may bet up to the amount of money that is currently in the pot.
