Stud Poker: At the beginning Five Card Stud was played, but this variant is hardly offered anymore. When you talk about Stud today, it is generally meant Seven Card Stud. As the name implies, each player receives (up to) seven cards. Each player starts with three cards, two face down and one face up. After the first round of betting, which is also called 3rd-Street, there is a 4th card (also open again) for the still active players. After further betting rounds on 4th, 5th and 6th-Streets, there is the seventh card at the end , which in turn is dealt face down. So every active player has two face-down, four face-up and face-down cards at the end.
