Razz Poker

Razz Overview

Razz is the low ball version of Seven-Card Stud. It is played exactly the same as Seven-Card Stud, except that the lowest hand wins. It is suitable for 3-7 players.

Razz Rules

To play, each player first antes up, paying a small amount of money into the pot. Then the deal begins.

First, each player receives two cards facedown and one face up.

This is followed by a round of betting. Generally betting starts with the player who has the highest card. In order to stay in, that player must make a bring-in which is a sum of money smaller than the minimum bet. Betting continues clockwise from the bring-in bet. Players choose to call, raise, or fold. To call, a player matches the current bet and stays in the game. If a player wishes to raise the value of the pot, they can raise their wager, forcing any other player who wishes to stay in to put more money in the pot. If the player does not wish to play anymore, they may fold, relinquishing any rights to the pot.

After the first round of betting is complete, the dealer gives each player a fourth card, face up. There is a round of betting, beginning with the player to the dealer’s left.

When this round is completed, the fifth card is dealt, face up. This is followed by another round of betting.

The sixth card is dealt, face up. There is another round of betting.

The seventh card is dealt, face down. This is followed by a round of betting and the showdown. In the showdown, players make the lowest possible hand that they can using five of their seven cards. Aces can be played as low. Straights and flushes don’t count. Pairs work against the player. The lowest hand wins the pot.
