There are three variants of 7-card stud that are played in poker rooms today:

  • 7-card stud (stud), where the best standard high hand wins the pot.
  • Razz – where the best low hand wins the pot.
  • 7-card stud high-low, where the best high and hand and the best low hand split the pot.

7-card stud high-low, is nearly always played with a qualifier for low, whereby the low hand only wins half the pot if it is at least an 8 low or better.
