Razz Poker Rules

The goal in Razz Poker is to make the best 5-card low hand from 7 cards (straights and flushes don't count).
    Each player starts with 2 hole cards and 1 up-card; there are then 3 more rounds of up-cards, with betting after each card, and a final down card.  Each player ends up with 7 cards: 4 face up and 3 face down.
    The player holding the best low hand using any 5 of their cards wins the pot. Aces are always low, and flushes and straights don't count against your hand.  The best hand is A-2-3-4-5.

Razz Poker Hand

Every player puts an ante into the pot. The player having the highest up-card has a bring-in bet (a forced bet usually 1/3 to 2/3 of a complete bet).
    The other players can either fold, call the bring-in, or complete the bet.
After the bring-in bet has been completed, there is a limit of 3 raises.
    All bets and raises before 5th street will be increments of the low-limit bet.  5th street and beyond, the bets start at the higher limit (2 x low limit bet).  During a showdown, the best low hand will win the pot.
