The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Seven card Stud Poker, with three cards dealt face-down in the center of the table. The game proceeds as regular seven card stud. Following the second betting round (after each player has been dealt four cards, two up, two down), the dealer flips the first table card ("The Good"). Any cards in any hand matching The Good are wild, although the card itself is NOT a community card that players can use.

Following the third betting round (after each player has five cards), the dealer flips the second table card ("The Bad"). Any cards in any player's hand, up or down, matching The Bad have to be discarded by the player.

Following the fourth betting round (after each player has six cards), the dealer flips the third table card ("The Ugly"). Any player who has a card face-up that matching The Ugly is automatically out of the game. Remaining players proceed with the seventh card and final betting round, followed by showdown.
