Razz

Razz

Razz, or Seven-Card Stud Lo, is the same as Stud poker, but in this game the weakest hand wins.

At first glance of an inexperienced player, the rules for determining the winner in Razz are the inverted "upside down" rules of Stud poker. Indeed, Razz has the same game rules and sequence as Stud, but there is the system used in Razz "from Ace to Five" of the range of low hands, also known as "California" Flushes and straights are ignored there, and the Aces are always defined as minor cards, so the best hand is a "wheel": 5, 4, 3, 2, A. In order to understand better the rankings of low hands, there is an example, in which the hands are shown in an ascending order (the first hand almost never wins the pot, and the hand of 12 is the best):

1. 4, 4, 4, 5, 5

2. K, K, 4, 3, 2

3. 2, 2, 7, 6, 5

4. A, A, T, 9, 8

5. K, Q, J, T, 9

6. K, Q, J, T, 7

7. 9, 8, 7, 6, 5

8. 9, 7, 6, 5, 3

9. 9, 7, 6, 5, A

10. 6, 5, 4, 3, 2

11. 6, 4, 3, 2, A

12. 5, 4, 3, 2, A

It should be noted that the range of the hand without pair is defined in the sequence from the high card to the minor one. For example, the hand of 9 is known as the "nine-low", because it has the highest card – the Nine. The hand of 10 – "six-Lo," and the hand of 5 – "King-Lo." Low hands that have the same high card, are named from the following hands. So the hand of 10 is called "six-five-Lo", and it is worse than the hand of 11 – "six-four-Lo".
