7 Card Stud Hi/Lo 2-7 Roll Your Own

7 Card Stud High Low 2-7 Roll Your Own

Submitted by Nolan Hee

 Forced Money

The game is played with antes.  The low card on the board by rank first and then by suit brings it in.  The 2c is the lowest possible card followed by the 2d.

Dealing Procedure

Starting with the player in Seat 1, each player is dealt six cards face down.  Each player then removes one card from their hand and places it face down in front of the rest.  Once each player has done this, each player turns that card face up.  The low card on the board brings it in, followed by a round of betting at the lower betting limit.

Each player remaining in the hand separates a second card from their hand.  Once each player has done this, each player turns up this card.  This is followed by a round of betting at the lower betting limit with the first check or bet option belonging to the player with the best high poker hand on the board.  Note: Unlike 7 Card Stud for high only, even if there is an open pair on fourth street all bets on this street will always be at the lower betting limit.

A third card placed face up is rolled by each player, followed by a betting round at the higher betting limit.

A fourth card placed face up is rolled by each player, followed by a betting round at the higher betting limit.

A fifth card is dealt to all remaining players face down.  After this card is dealt to everyone, one card is separated from each player's set of down cards and is rolled in the same manner as on previous streets.  If there are not enough remaining cards for all players, a single community card is turned face up and placed in the middle of the table.  This is followed by a round of betting at the higher betting limit.

It is required that each player, while the hand is being played, not alter or obfuscate the order in which they have set their face up cards.

Evaluating the Showdown

The highest five card hand and the best Kansas City low hand (Deuce to Seven) split the pot.
