Last time I checked, there is only one Ferguson a day (01:30AM ET - iirc) 7 days a week, and they do alternate games. Always have.
If you don't know already from google, razz is a stud game.
Google is your friend. There are tons of sites that give quick game descriptions and rules.
The lowest hand wins.
The lowest being a2345.
Straights and flushes do not count.
It is mostly played as a limit game,so I am sure the ferguson would take years to finish .
Takes about as long as a NLHE game. Just like Holdem or any other game, the stakes go up and with stud type games, there are antes for every player on every hand, right from the start. When stakes go to 500/1,000 and a 100 ante, it moves just as fast as Holdem.
You probably already researched all this but just figured I would share.
I have been anxtious for a tournament to start before,only to find it is a stud game or something like that.
As in all tournament play, patience is the vertue.
See you on the flops.

If i ever entered a tourney i didnt know how to play, id just sit back and see what hands people are showing down and just play those, lol.
Most sites have concise instructions on how to play any game they offer. Why not read the rules and play the game instead of guessing ??

Nope. Razz is low only
. Hi/lo games (non-razz) normally require the low hand to be 5 cards showing an 8 or less to qualify. In Razz, it is the lowest 5 of 7 cards and winning hands can often have a 9, 10, J or higher in the 5 winning lowest cards.
