Traditional Stud Poker

Each player and the dealer is dealt their own five card hand. One of the dealer’s cards is face up, the other four are face down. Decide to stay in or fold. If you fold, you forfeit your ante. If you stay in, you must add to your bet double the amount of the ante. Assuming the player is still in, the dealer looks at his/her cards. If the dealer does not have at least and ace/king the the player automatically wins even money on the ante and the additional wager is returned. If the dealer does have at least ace/king then a comparison is made between the player’s hand and the dealers hand. If the player has the higher hand, he/she wins even money on the ante, and whatever odds are on the bet. If the dealers hand beats the players hand, he loses both the ante and the bet.
