Discovering Stud Poker
Generally those who have played complex strategies in holdem or are proficient in the game think that stud poker is relatively less complex to play and find that it may give some quick and better profits if played in the right way too. Johnny Moss, perhaps exaggerating a bit, once said: "Holdem is to stud what chess is to checkers."
Stud poker is any of a number of poker variants in which each player receives a mix of face-down and face-up cards dealt in multiple betting rounds. This play mode represents a specific feature of the game.
Stud games are also typically non-positional games, meaning that the player who bets first on each round may change from round to round (it is usually the player whose face-up cards make the best hand for the game being played).
The cards dealt face down to each individual player are called hole cards (which gave rise to the common English expression ace in the hole, which suggests that one has something valuable that is not apparent to others).
Stud poker is probably the most dynamic type of poker. If you play for money, you would prefer this poker variant since there are more betting rounds and therefore, more money in the pot.
