Mississippi Stud Poker
Mississippi Stud Poker was created to make Seven Card Stud play better at no limit and pot limit. It is often played with a betting structure similar to Texas Hold’em limit: fixed with the last two rounds double the limit of the first two. The bring-in should be less than the first-round limit.
The initial deal is as in standard seven-card stud. After the betting round, two upcards are dealt to each player, so each now has two down and three up. A second betting round is followed by one more upcard and a third betting round. The last card is dealt face up, so that each player ends with two downcards and five upcards. Because each player has five upcards on the last round, straights, flushes, and full houses count as "high hand exposed" for the purpose of determining who must bet first. Finally there is a normal showdown.
