Stud

History Stud

It is impossible to describe exactly the birth of this type of poker. One of the versions indicates that Stud appeared in the middle of the 19th century, during the Civil War in the United States. This form of poker found its popularity among the soldiers of the South Army (the Confederate States of America). Stud was competing with Draw Poker for a long time, and there was a moment, when Stud was outlawed, while Draw Poker climbed the peak of its popularity. The beginning of the period is referred to 1910, when in the state of Nevada there was issued a law, prohibiting gambling. All the kinds of poker were related to gambling, except Draw Poker, which was defended by clever and influential people, who managed to convince the authorities that Draw Poker was based on skills rather than luck. The ban period lasted until 1931, when the law was canceled and casinos were legalized. It was from the 30s of last century, when the popularity of Stud began increasing, and it held the leading position among other forms of poker for a long time. Only in the 80s Stud yielded precedence to, popular nowadays, Texas Hold'em.
