Here's one for you. Have you ever heard of a game
called Mississippi Stud? Greg M.
of it, yes, played it, no.
Mississippi Stud is but another poker variant in which
each player receives a mix of face-down and face-up
cards dealt in multiple betting rounds. A form of
seven-card stud, Mississippi Stud is generally played
pot limit, with fourth and fifth street cards dealt
without a betting round between them, and seventh-street
dealt face up.
has their own table game version of Mississippi
Stud where players compete against a paytable rather
than against other players or a dealer, and win
if their hands consist of a pair of 6s or better.
Although I haven't seen this table game version,
I hope those who have will drop me a line and
share their thoughts on the game so I can pass
them along to Greg.
