5/7 Card Stud
Deal two cards face down, and one card face up to each player. Betting round. Deal the next four cards (or two in five card stud) face up followed by a betting round for each one. Deal the last card face down followed by’ a final betting round

Low in the Hole
Same as 5/7 card stud. but with the lowest card face down in each players hand wild. Players can pay to have the last card placed face up so it cannot change their wild card (dealers choice).

Same as 7 card stub but with 3’s and 9’s wild. If you get a 4, you can buy an extra card face down (the poker dealer calls the purchase price). Some dealers call the 4’s progressive, meaning the extra card for each 4 gets more expensive as the game goes on. Some dealers also play variations where you have to buy your wild cards or he forced to fold.

Midnight Baseball
Same as Baseball, but all seven cards are dealt face down. Players DO NOT look at their cards, and place them in any order in front of them. The player to the left of the dealer starts by turning over his top card and betting (or calling). The next player in line then has to turn over his cards one at a time until they beat the previous player’s card(s), followed by a betting round. Play continues like this until there is a winner. If a player turns over all of his cards and cannot beat the previous player’s cards, they are out of the game, and the betting for that round reverts to the previous player.

Roll Your Own (Mexican Stud)
Deal three cards to each player. Each player places one of the three cards face up on the table (this is called the roll), followed by a betting round. Deal one card to each player, and repeat the roll, until all seven cards are dealt. Some dealers call this game that you do not roll your last card.

Shifting Sands
Same as Roll Your own poker. hut the low card in the hole is wild.
