Razz is played like 7-card stud. The twist is that in Razz, the worst hand wins. Each player is dealt two hole cards and one upcard; the dealer then gives each active player three more upcards, and then a final downcard. Each player ends up with seven cards, four face up and three face down. At the showdown, the player holding the best low hand using only five of his seven cards wins the pot. Aces are always low, and flushes and straights have no effect on the value of a hand. The best possible hand is A-2-3-4-5 (wheel).
