Limit Razz (also known as 7 Card Stud Low) is played as a fixed limit game where the ‘worst’ hand wins. Straights and flushes don’t count, and the best hand is A, 2, 3, 4, 5. For information on how to play, visit our Razz Rules page.
A lot of players find limit Razz to be a frustrating game. While it can be frustrating, one of the main reasons players pull their hair out with this game is also the reason it’s so profitable. Most people playing limit Razz right now are inexperienced and don’t understand the game. This means there’s a ton of dead money out there, money for better players to scoop up.
Razz Poker is a game where (based on upcards) at certain times you’re ’supposed’ to bluff, bet or fold. If your opponent doesn’t know when he’s supposed to fold, he’ll often call down your bluff and beat you. If your opponent is beating you simply because he doesn’t know enough to know when he’s supposed to fold, this can make you a little crazy. The good news is that there are ways to defend against this, you just have to learn how.
The game can also be frustrating when you’re playing against a number of skilled players at the same table. When everyone knows what they ’should’ do, this is when players step outside the box and more creativity comes into play. Fortunately for online players, unless you’re playing in a high-stakes game, you’ll rarely if ever find tables like this. For the most part, people at the limit Razz tables are new & inexperienced at the game.
