Seven Card Alternatives


There are many online variations of 7-card stud poker.  Each has its own set of rules and varies slightly from the traditional game, but for the most part, retains the same rules in terms of hand rankings.  The biggest difference in most cases is how the hands are dealt.


This article will explore several variations and explain how they are played.  While the rules for online poker are very much like those of the traditional game, they are specific to this new method of playing the game.  This article focuses on the online rules and specifications.


Follow The Queen is one alternative to the 7-card game.  The hand is dealt like that of 7-card stud.  Here, if a Queen is face up, the rank of the next card dealt up is wild.  Only one rank may be wild at any given time.  If another Queen comes up, then the previous rank is no longer considered to be wild.  If the Queen is the last card dealt up in the last up round, no cards are wild.


There are variations to this game as well.  It is possible to add Jokers and have the affect of a Queen in the determination of the next wild card.  Jokers can also either be null cards or wild themselves, and any rank could be used in place of the Queen.  A dummy hand or initial clip from the deck can be used previous to the person to the left of the dealer in order to offset a disadvantage, otherwise that person can only have three of his or her four up cards preceded by a Queen.


Kankakee is another variation of online poker.  It is played like regular 7-card stud, except a card is dealt face up to each player after two cards have already been dealt face down, and all matching cards are wild in the player’s hand.  This variation is very popular among online poker players.


Razz is another seven card alternative.  This variation is played like 7-card stud, only with one important twist.  The player with the worst hand wins.  Each player is dealt two hole cards and one up card.  Then each player receives three more up cards, and then one final down card.  This means that each player ends up with seven cards, four face up, and three face down.  At the showdown, the player who holds the best low hand using only five of his or her seven cards wins the pot.  Aces are always low, and flushes and straights have no effect on the value of a hand.  The best possible hand is a 2-3-4-5 (wheel).    


Another seven card variation is Kings Little Ones.  Here, Kings are always wild, as is the lowest card face-down in the hand of each player.  Often, it is necessary for the King to be dealt face-down in order for it to be wild in the hand of any given player.


There are several other variations of 7-card stud, all of which are available for online playing.  Though the rules and specifications for online poker games are much the same as those for the game played in its traditional form, there are some differences in how it actually works.  Those who enjoy playing the game often like the advantages of being able to play it online from the comforts of their own homes.  Another advantage is the opportunities it provides for people to play with others in many different parts of the globe.  This, along with the ability for players to play several types of games in one sitting, is what helps this form of poker playing to continue to rise in popularity.
