Played some 7 card Stud

I took a break from Texas Holdem poker last night, and played in a newly started 7 Card Stud league at the club. My son asked me 'Are you seriously going to play 7 card stud?'! LOL

It was difficult to explain to him that when I was his age, that was THE game that we all played in our little home games. There were a lot of variations in the game, but it all came down to deriviates of 7 card stud!

It was different, that is for sure, and playing a tournament style 7 card stud was a lot different than I remember from playing in our home games! It took me a few rounds to get my bearings, but after that, things seemed to fall into place rather quickly. I really didnt do that badly, all things considered. At least I was not among the first few that got knocked out. And when I DID get knocked out, it was because I was rivered going in with the best hand!

I dont see myself giving up texas holdem poker for 7 card stud, but it's nice to play different games for a change!
