The Classic Five Card Stud Poker Game
In Mississippi Stud, you compete against a pay table, not against the dealer, and you win if your hand is a pair of 6s or better. The top payout is 500 to 1 for a Royal Flush – and it pays on all bets!
Make an Ante bet to receive your first two cards. The dealer will place three community cards face down in the middle of the layout.
Play or Fold?
At this point, you may either fold or make the 3rd Street bet of 1x to 3x your Ante. The dealer then reveals the first community card. Once you see the first community card, you have a choice: fold or make the 4th Street bet of 1x to 3x your Ante. The dealer then reveals the second community card. Once again, you can fold or stay in the game by making the 5th Street bet from 1x to 3x your Ante.
Note: When you fold, you forfeit all bets left in action.
Winning and Losing
After the dealer turns over the final community card, he resolves all wagers left in action. You win if your five-card hand is a pair of 6s or better. Some hands push.
