7-Card Stud High-Low Split
To win at poker, you must have the best 5-card hand amongst your opponents or bluff them into thinking that you have the better hand.
Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split (8-or-better) is a stud format game which is played both high and low.
A qualifier of 8-or-better for low applies to all high-low split games, unless a specific posting to the contrary is displayed. The low card initiates the action on the first round, with an Ace counting as a high card for this purpose.
On subsequent rounds, the high hand initiates the action. If the high hand is tied, the first player clockwise from the dealer acts first. Fixed-limit games use the lower limit on third and fourth streets and the upper limit on subsequent rounds, and an open pair does not affect the limit. Aces may be used for high or low.
Straights and flushes do not affect the low value of a hand. A player may use any five cards to make the best high hand, and the same or any other grouping of five cards to make the best low hand.
