S.D. Admin. R. 20:18:16:14 - The play - Seven-card low stud poker and seven-card high stud poker
In seven-card low stud poker and seven-card high stud poker, the player receives two cards dealt face downward and one card dealt face upward. At the retail licensee's discretion, the player with the high or low card opens. If two or more players have a card of the same value, the low or high card must be determined by the rank of the suits of cards as follows: spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs from highest to lowest. On all subsequent rounds, the player with the best hand showing opens. The players receive three additional cards dealt face upward and a final card dealt face downward, with a betting round after each card. In seven-card stud high, the highest hand wins the pot. In seven-card stud low, the lowest hand wins the pot.
