Razz

Razz has been around for a long time, but it's starting to find new life in the poker world. Basically, Razz is a variation of seven-card stud where instead of the highest hand winning, the lowest or worst hand wins the pot.

As in regular 7 card stud, every player is dealt a total of seven cards, three cards face down, and the other four face up. The objective is to make your best five card low hand, using any combination of the seven cards you are dealt.

The lowest hand in Razz is A2345, because straights and flushes don't count against a hand being low, and aces are counted as low.

Unlike split-pot hi-lo games like Omaha, Razz doesn't have an "eight or better" component to it's play. In an hi-lo eight-or-better game, the winning low hand cannot have a card higher than 8 in it to count as a low hand. Since Razz is a game with only a low hand winning, any hand can win, including hands with low pairs.

However, while this is possible, it's highly unlikely, and most winning Razz hands will not have a pair in them.
