The poker variation draft is played as a standard seven-card stud except with the following variants. A standard seven-card stud hand starts with 1 down and 2 up cards. This play is identical. Starting with the third card, and continuing through the fourth, fifth, and sixth card (street), the dealer will deal face-up cards to the center of the table, one for each player. The player with the lowest showing hand chooses one of these cards and adds it to his face-up hand. Then the next lowest player “drafts” his card and so forth until the highest showing hand takes the final center table card. The final, normally facedown card, is dealt as such: facedown to each player. From there play and betting continues as normal. As with most poker variations, a high/low variation is highly possible to tag on.
