What is an Upcard in Poker?

1 minute

Last Updated: January 28, 2024


An upcard in poker is a card dealt face up so that every player on the table can see it. This is opposite to a downcard, which is dealt face-down, and only the player who receives it can see it.

Upcard Poker Example:

In a game like Seven-card stud, you first receive two downcards and one upcard. With three subsequent betting rounds, one upcard will be dealt on each round, followed by a downcard before the last betting round.
