Casino stud poker
The game of Casino Stud Poker is played with a standard 52-card deck and uses win odds to determine the winner. Each player is awarded a pair if they have the best five-card hand. A royal flush, which can yield payout odds of 100:1, is the best poker hand. Players are not allowed to share their information with other players in the game. A hand containing an ace and a king is the winning hand.
The game is played with up to eight players. There are seven cards in the deck, so if all eight players are holding a 7-card hand, the deck will contain 56 cards. In order to be able to beat the dealer, the player needs to have a higher hand than the dealer. Each player must set a stake before the game begins. The stake may be from one dollar to a hundred dollars. When the dealer shows a winning hand, the dealer will be paid according to the paytable.
The buy-in in Casino Stud Poker is typically ten times the minimum bet. The ranking of hands in the game is similar to that of Draw Poker, but without the Joker. In the case of an all-in wager of less than half of a bet, the betting action is not re-opened for the previous players. If the player raises his bet, the previous players may either call the bet or fold it. However, if the dealer makes a bet of more than half of the Ante bet, the bet is considered a full bet and the player is paid the same.
