Rules for 7 Card Stud.

For the low hand to qualify in 7 Card hi lo Stud, it must consist of five different cards with an equal or lower value than 8.

A-2-4-5-7-9-K will qualify to win the pot, but A-2-3-3-4-9-10 will not.

The lowest possible hand is; A-2-3-4-5.
The second lowest is A-2-3-4-6 and the third lowest will be A-2-3-5-6.
