Few More Rules For 7 Card Stud
After this round of betting is over, the dealer deals one more card to each player face. You now try to make your best 5 card hand using the 5 cards you have in your hand, but remember you have two more cards coming. A round of betting occurs as soon as each player has been dealt their card. As of now you should have three cards facing up and two cards facing down.
After this round of betting has ended the dealer deals one last face up card to each player in the hand. This card will be your last face up card, but there is still one more card you will be dealt but it will be face down. A round of betting occurs after this.
Finally, after the round of betting has ended, the dealer deals the last card to you face down. Obviously you can look at it, and you must now try to make your best five card hand. You should have 4 cards facing up and 3 cards facing down if the dealer has dealt correctly. A round of betting occurs, and as soon as all bets have been called, or all opponents have folded the hand is over. If two or more people are in the hand then the players must show their cards and the best hand will win the pot. If there is only one player in the hand who has caused everyone to fold, then the player has one by default, and has the option of showing his cards or mucking them. Mucking cards is the act of throwing away your cards when you are the only one left in the pot and you have one. You do this for various reasons but mainly so your opponent cant see your cards since he did not call the bet.
