How to Play and Rules
Three to eight people can play 7 Card Stud Six Kick Poker. It uses the same gameplay and betting structure as 7 cards stud poker; the difference for this variant is that the players only receive 6 cards. The 7th card is dealt only after all the betting has taken place. Each player can opt to replace a card in their hand. If the card they replace is an up card they get an up card, if it is a down card the replacement is a down card.
The players have to pay into the pot a predetermined amount to replace the card in their hand. This is generally the same amount as the minimum bet to replace the up card and double to replace a down card. The showdown reveals both a high and low card winner who will split the pot.
There is a maximum of 2 kicks in a game followed by a round of betting and then the showdown.
