The player with the best combination of five cards takes the pot. If several players have collected equivalent combinations, then the bank is divided equally between them. After the bank is handed over to the player who won the hand, the next hand begins. You need to be specific on this.
In the herd, as in most other types of poker, the player can fold, check, bet (bet), call or raise. The availability of certain actions depends on the actions of previous players. If no one has placed a bet before you, then you can place a bet or play a check (refuse the bet, but not fold the cards). If one of the players has made a bet, subsequent players may fold, call or raise. “Calling” means placing the number of chips in the bank necessary to equalize the bet of the previous player. “Raise” means to put in the pot the number of chips that exceeds the bet of the previous player. The sizes of bets and raises in limited games are strictly fixed.
Additional herd rules and situations
When determining the player who should put the bring-in, suits are taken into account. They are ranked as follows: clubs (junior), tambourines, hearts and peaks (senior). Bring-in makes the youngest suit. That is, if at the beginning of the distribution there are two of worms and two of clubs, then the bring-in makes two of clubs.
If the player with the youngest card on third street goes all-in, betting ante, and cannot put the bring-in, then the player brings the next bring-in clockwise, regardless of his / her open cards.
On the fourth street, if one of the players receives a pair in open cards, then a bet or raise can be made for the size of a large bet (for example, $ 4 in the game $ 2 / $ 4). As soon as one of the players places a big bet in such a situation, the rest of the bets on the fourth street are placed in increments of a big bet.
Since there cannot be more than eight players at the herd table, and there are only 52 cards in the deck, it is possible that the cards in the deck run out to the seventh street. In such rare cases, one common open card is dealt, which all remaining players can use.
A type of seven-card herd called seven card stud hi-low (or Stud Eight and Better or Stud / 8) is also available in the poker room. There are two potential winners in this type of herd: half of the pot is awarded to the player who has the best high combination and half to the player who has the best low combination and fulfilled the “eight or better” condition.
It also offers a variation of razz. In this version of the herd, the entire bank goes to the best low combination, with the requirement of “eight or better” is missing.
