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
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.
