Seven card stud used to be the game, but it's been overtaken by holdem over the last decade or two. Still, it's fun, and still pretty popular.

The basic structure of a seven card stud game is as follows.

1) Everyone antes (this is typically a 1/10th of a small bet).
2) Everyone gets three cards (two down and one up - the "door card")
3) There is a betting round, started by the bring in. The bring in is the player with the lowest door card. The bring in bet makes a half or a whole small bet.
4) All active players get another face up card (fourth street).
5) There is a round of betting.
