Mississippi Stud is a five-card poker game. Players compete against a pay table, not against the dealer or other players.

Players ante and receive two cards. They either fold or buy the first community card (betting equal to their ante with an optional raise and re-raise equal to their ante). When that card is revealed, they either fold or buy the second community card (betting equal to their ante with an optional raise and re-raise equal to their ante). After that card is revealed, they either fold or buy the third and final community card (betting equal to their ante with an optional raise and re-raise equal to their ante).

Player’s need a pair of Jack’s or better to win, and a pair of 7’s to 10’s to push. Odds printed on layout, or displayed on a table card. All bets received odds.
