The two tables above are approximations. Surely, the odds against pairing a hole card will vary slightly with the exact number of cards exposed. Such precise odds against figures, however, are unlikely to help the player in actual competition.
56. Five Card Stud (Low)
56. Five Card Stud (Low) This form of Poker is quite different from most other forms of Stud in that no player can conceal his hand's strength; a player can only conceal his hand's weakness. A player is dealt only five cards, and any one of them can destroy his hand. He may buy a pair of high cards and there's nothing he can do to conceal it unless he pairs a low upcard with his hole card. Example: An opponent shows X-5-4-J-2—his hand cannot be better than jack high, though it might be considerably worse.
