5 Card Stud Rules

The rules of 5 card stud are pretty simple. To start all players at the table will place an ante. The dealer will than deal each player a card face down, and then a card face up. The face down card is known as your hole card. The player with the lowest face up card must place an opening bet. The betting will go around the table to the left.
When all players have called, raised or folded the dealer will deal one more card face up. Then another round of betting will occur. From this point forward the player with the highest showing hand will be the first person to bet.This will continue until each player has a total of five cards. You will have one hole card and four cards that are face up. The player with the best 5 card hand will win the pot. Below is a hand rating chart for 5 card stud.
