Cyber Stud Poker
In cyber stud poker (the first online casino poker game), you are pitted against the dealer who deals you a hand of 5 cards. The dealer's first card is dealt facing up. Using the strength of your hand and the value of the dealer's first card, you have to decide whether to increase your bet to maximize your winnings or to fold to minimize your loss. If you call and the dealer's hand qualifies, you will be paid out according to that casino's schedule based on the value of your hand.
The dealer's hand must contain at least an Ace-King (so called pair) or better to qualify.
Casinos feature variations of their game layout and the way you actually go about playing it on line but the following is a fairly general overview of the game of stud poker.
Use the Deal button to start a new game of stud
Playing Poker is you against the dealer. You
have to beat the dealer's hand.
When you have set your Ante (bet), click the Deal button. You will be dealt 5 cards and the dealer 1 card, all these cards will be turned face up. If your hand consists of any of the poker combinations it will show which combination next to the cards dealt. You now have to decide to 'Call' or 'Fold', by clicking the appropriate button.
If you fold, you will automatically lose your Ante and that
hand is over. If you 'Call' an additional wager equal to double
the Ante (original bet) is required. This second amount is
called your 'Bet'. The Bet is automatically deducted from
your balance when you click the Call button. If you do not
have enough credits to make the Bet you will not be able to
complete the game. You must go and purchase additional credits
before completing this hand. Once you 'Call' the dealer is
dealt a further 4 cards which are then revealed to you.
If you haven't got enough credits to make both the Ante and a Bet, you will receive notification that you have insufficient credits to continue playing. You will have to purchase more credits if you wish to continue playing.

When you have nothing in your hand you can “bluff” and if your lucky, the dealer will fail to qualify and you win double your ante.
When playing Cyber Stud poker, you should fold if you have less than an Ace-King combination in your hand. When you hold a pair, call.
When you hold an Ace-King and one of your cards is the same as the dealers up card, call.
