Before starting the dealt in Stud, the players make the bets, so-called "ante". Their size is determined by the players’ arrangement or by the name of the table in online poker rooms, for example, a table of $1/$2 with ante of $0.15.

Stud, as none of the other types of poker, requires serious skills and knowledge of the game tactical options on each of the betting rounds, so it is not recommended for beginners. Due to high financial risks in this game, on the Internet, it is increasingly practiced 7-card Stud with a limited basis of the stakes. The unlimited version can be found, perhaps, only in real games of high roller professionals.

Like Omaha, Stud has Hi-Lo version. Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo, or Stud 8, coincides with Omaha 8 on the principle of the game. Both strong and weak hands compete for a pot. At the time of the showdown, at the table in the presence of the strongest and the weakest hands, the pot is divided between the owners equally. If the weak hand is absent at the table, the pot is fully taken by the player with the strongest hand. The weak hand is considered to be a combination of five cards that has no pairs, and the cards that are higher than Eight. The presence of straight or flush in the combination is not important for the determination of hand weakness. Thus, the weakest and the invincible hand are considered to be a "wheel" – street to Five.
