Big “O”

Rules of Game Play:  The play of a hand of Big O operates the same as a hand of Omaha, except players are dealt five hole cards before the flop, instead of four. Because of the increased card count in the hands, Big O can be played by at most 9 players. When played nine-handed, the deck does not have enough cards to allow the dealer to burn before each exposure of board cards. Accordingly, there is no burn card prior to the river. When played eight-handed or shorter, the dealer burns before each board deal, as in standard flop games.

As in Omaha and Hold 'Em, there are four betting rounds:

  • after the deal to the players but before the board cards ()

  • after the exposure of the initial three board cards ()

  • after the exposure of the fourth board card

  • after the exposure of the fifth and final board card

In the limit betting structure, the bet size doubles on the last two betting rounds.

At showdown, a player must use exactly two of their hole cards along with exactly three of the board cards in order to make their best poker hand (or their lowest, if going for the low of a hi-lo game). They cannot play any fewer than two of their hole cards, nor any more than two.

Seven Card Stud

Rules of Game Play:  Game is dealt from a 52card deck. Dealer delivers each player in clockwise order two cards face down and one card face up to start. Lowest card on the table is forced to bet the minimum. Subsequent players may call, raise or fold. When all bets are equal the dealer delivers another face up card in order, to all remaining players. This and subsequent betting rounds begin with the highest hand. Dealer will continue to deliver one card to each player per round with a betting round afterwards until each player’s seven cards. The last card is delivered face down. Winning hand is either the last remaining in the pot or the best five card combination out of the player’s seven cards according to the standard poker ranking system.

 

Procedures for wagering:  If an ante is required, it will be so stated by signage on the table. Lowest face up card on the first round must bet the minimum (one dollar unless otherwise stated on the table) and subsequent players may either call, raise or fold. On each subsequent round, the hand with the highest ranking based upon the face up cards starts the betting. The later betting rounds may be higher than the initial betting rounds.
