Tips & Strategy

If you are playing Five-card stud at poker club then you must know what strategy to be adopt by a players. This will help you to play more easy and comfortable.


Five-card stud often rewards skill since smart players carefully watch what other players have and assess the chances of improving their hands. Also, try and remember what cards have been folded.


A key thing to remember about five-card stud (and poker in general): Don’t be afraid to fold early, even after the first round, if you have mediocre cards. While it’s true that occasionally you will catch some good cards and improve your weak opening cards, in the long run, it’s better to play the percentages and fold early.


There is a variety of opinions about what players should stay in the game after being dealt their first two cards. Conventionally, players will fold after the first two cards if they do not have a high pair, two high cards, or an Ace or King high. If you have less than this, only stay in if the other up cards can’t beat you or the betting is light and it is worth staying in to get another card.


If you are dealt a low pair with the first two cards, be wary of staying in the game too long, particularly if you do not get a three of a kind with the third card. Also, if another player has a high card showing and is betting aggressively, he might have a high pair.


If you are dealt two suited cards and are thinking about chasing a flush, proceed with caution. Going for a flush in five-card stud is risky even after having three or four suited cards. It is particularly dangerous if your suited poker cards are low. (If one of the cards is high, you still have a chance of at least getting a high pair.) If you try for the flush, you must pay attention to whether any of the up cards in your opponents’ hands are of the same suit, which would reduce your chance of completing the flush.


If the cards you need to improve your hand are visible in your opponents’ hands, they are ‘dead” to you. When you are trying to complete a straight, look around the table to see if another player is holding card you could use; if they are, your chances are greatly reduced. For instance, if after the first three cards you have J-1O-9, and you notice that two opponents are showing 8s and another has a Queen, your chances of filling that straight are in jeopardy. In five-card stud, it is crucial to continually assess and reassess your chances of improving your hand.


You can also get a sense of whether your opponents’ hands can be improved by looking at their up cards. For instance, if you have three 2s (two showing and one in the hole) and an opponent is showing two Aces, look around the table and see if any other Aces are exposed. If other Aces are exposed, your probability of winning is greater.


Don’t be self-centered. While you might stay in the hopes of trying to improve your hand, remember your opponents are doing the same thing. For instance, let’s say an opponent’s up card is a King and you have a 7 as your up card and a 10 in the hole. If you stay in with the hopes of getting a pair, keep in mind that your opponent has the same odds of pairing his King. If your opponent begins raising or stepping up his betting in later rounds, he might have gotten that pair, so proceed cautiously. In stud games, always keep an eye on the other poker online cards on the table. Knowing what is on the table allows you to reassess the odds. Using our example from above, if two other players are also dealt a King, the chances of anyone getting a pair of Kings are dramatically reduced.
