The poker variant
follow the queen is regularly played as a seven-card stud
hand with the following variants (though of course any rule variations are up to the dealer
in house rules
). Players play through a seven-card stud
hand with matching betting but wild card
s are determined during play. Whenever a queen is dealt face-up the next card dealt is wild and all cards matching it become wild. Therefore if a queen is dealt to player 3 then player 4 gets dealt a 6
: all sixes become wild. If a queen is dealt after a queen then all queens become wild PLUS whatever the next card is again. Some
play where queens are wild from the start and if the last card dealt face-up is a queen then ONLY queens are wild.
This game results in choppy pot
sizes and works better as you approach maximum players for your game. If you are not a fan of games with wilds then this will severely throw off your playing style. I’m guessing San Francisco
poker players don’t mind wilds seeing as this is quite a popular poker game there.
