Rules of Russian Revolution Poker

Russian Revolution poker is another of the many 7 Card Stud variants. There are however some fundamental differences in game play between the two games - namely the inclusion of a 6 wild cards. There are still 5 betting rounds, seven cards dealt and players still need to make the best 5 card hand from the 7 available.

The wild cards add another level to the game and quite simply - there are a lot of big hands made.

Game play

The deal in this game is no different to that of 7 card stud apart from the following. Each player is dealt 2 cards down, 4 up cards and then another down card.

That's it - it's really just the up-cards that are different. If you are dealt any face cards you have the option to either buy a new card or fold. If your new card is a face card, you must buy another or fold. This means that you can't win a game with any face cards showing (in your face up cards). Otherwise everything is the same as in Seven-Stud.

When using the wild cards you can duplicate any of the cards that you have in your hand. For instance if you have a Ace of spades and you have a wild card in your hand you can use it as another Ace of spades.
