    seven card stud

    Dear all,

    What is the meaning of "seven card stud." in:

    [Back then you and me both had a seat at Jimmy's Thursday night game, seven card stud.]

    Also, does "Jimmy's" a casino? Like the structure is so misleading to me, I don't know if it's a casino or a person!

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: seven card stud

    Seven card stud is a card game for gambling, a type of poker.

    It sounds like a person named Jimmy organized poker night on a regular basis, and it sounds like it was for real money, not just for having fun.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: seven card stud

    The answerer said "'Course. Til the wife shut it down"

    Does that mean that they were playing a video-game or something?

    Thanks.

    No. It means the wife stopped the game. Probably had enough of the poker buddies coming over and told her husband he could not have the games at his house any more.
