What is Stud Poker?
There are three types of poker, and one of them is "stud poker". This time, we will summarize the features, basic rules, how to play, and the flow of the game of Stud Poker.
Differences from other poker
I explained at the beginning that there are three types of poker, but in the oldest type of poker "Draw Poker", each player is dealt cards face down (only that player can see them). increase. In other words, in the case of draw poker, you can't see your opponent's hand at all. Therefore, you will have to guess from the facial expressions and gestures of the opponent, how to exchange cards, how to bet, etc. and bargain to compete.
On the other hand, as explained in Stud Poker, some cards are dealt face up, so it is possible to guess the opponent's role from the visible cards to some extent. Compared to draw poker, where you don't know the other party's information at all, stud poker, which gives you even a little information, is recommended for beginners.
Features and points of stud poker
A major feature of Stud Poker is that there is no position advantage. In general, poker takes actions of betting and getting off in the order specified by the position of the seat. If the position is fixed, it is better for the player who can make a decision after considering the action of the player who is in the order first.
On the other hand, in stud poker, the strength of the first face-up card dealt determines the order in which the first action is taken, and after everyone finishes the action, the next card is dealt face-up, and the strength of that card also determines the action. The order in which to perform is determined. In this way, the order of actions changes according to the strength of the card each time, so there are no advantages or disadvantages depending on the position.
