Basic 7 card stud, with the caveat that if the queen of spades comes as an up card to any player, the hand is over. All cards are thrown in, the money remains in the pot, and the game is dealt again. Any player who dropped before the queen of spades showed up on the board cannot come back in and is out until the game is complete.
The game continues in this way until either the queen of spades does not come face up or until all players but one drop out of the hand. If more than one player remains, the winner (high hand) splits the pot with the high spade in the hole (Ace is high).
One variant has everyone at the table reante every time the queen comes and the hand must be redealt.
