ShowHand is essentially 5 card stud played mainly in China and Hong Kong. A major variation is the order in which third street and later cards are dealt, where the player with the strongest hand showing is dealt first, and also first to act. On fifth street the player with the strongest potential hand showing (ie. 4 clubs 'represents' a flush) is first to act. The only other variation is the strength of the A2345 straight and straight flush, which is considered the highest possible straight and straight flush respectively. A player announces Showhand when the player is all in. While this variation of 5 card stud is still played in Asia today, 5 card stud has declined in the western world where it has been replaced by 7 card stud and Texas Hold'em.
