  • 5 Card Stud Rules
  • Posted by bigspenda73 on Apr 7, 2017

  • Badugi Rules
  • Posted by bigspenda73 on Apr 6, 2017
  • Badugi is a weird, yet addictive, type of poker. You get four cards, and you have to try to make the lowest possible hand without repeating ranks or suits. There are three draws, so you have ample opportunity to get rid of cards you don't like.
  • Razz Rules
  • Posted by bigspenda73 on Apr 5, 2017
  • Razz is a form of poker very similar to 7 Card Stud. The difference is that you're playing for low instead of high. A "wheel" consists of A2345 and is the best possible hand. Straights and flushes don't count against your low hand here.
