Seven-Card Stud Eight-or-Better, High/Low Split

Games where high and low hands divvy up the money often have very large pots, so they're very popular online. With the pot divided so often, players who ordinarily wouldn't be in the hand are in there slugging it out. But a good many of them shouldn't be there, and you can win their money!

Seven-card stud eight-or-better, high/low split, abbreviated 7-stud/8, is a variant of seven-card stud. The pot is split between the best high hand and the best low hand. As in Omaha/8, it's possible for one player to make both the best high hand and the best low hand, thereby scooping the whole pot. However, as in Omaha/8, the low hand must "qualify," as we'll explain shortly.
