Spade Introduction to Razz

So you like Poker but always seem to get terrible hands? Maybe you should take up Razz! Similar in play to 7-card stud, Razz is a game where the object is to make the worst 5 card hand from 7 cards that you are dealt. Every player that stays in (doesnt fold) all the way through the hand will finish with 7 cards, and they will play the 5 that make the lowest ranking poker hand. To note, unlike other poker games, in Razz having a straight or flush does not rank your hand; that is to say having five cards in consecutive order, or five cards of the same suit doesnt lower the value of the hand. Also, in Razz, Aces are always the lowest ranking card; therefore the best possible hand in Razz is A-2-3-4-5.

Razz is one of those games that's a real puzzler. It's a blast when you're winning and a real downer when you're losing. It's the kind of game that can make a cool customer like Howard Lederer lose it. And don't think that if you're "running bad" it'll reverse when you get to the Razz table - you'll just start landing kings and queens like crazy. It's worth playing, but you'll definitely want to read up on it before sitting down.
