Scandinavian Stud?  +1   
i just received a free bankroll at virgin poker. i took a look now what stud games they offer and saw a game called soko. thanks to google i found out the following:

Soko is a version of 5 Card Stud Poker where a 4-card straight and a 4-card flush have been added to the hand rankings. These hands beat one pair and are beaten by two pair, meaning the Soko hand rankings in order of low to high are: high card, pair, 4-card straight, 4-card flush, two pair, three of a kind, straight, flush, full-house, quads and finally a straight flush. While it doesn’t come into play often, it’s worth noting that there is no such Soko hand as a 4 card straight flush.

Other than the two added hands, Soko is played exactly like traditional 5 Card Stud. Additional names for this game include Scandinavian Stud, Canadian Stud and the Finnish spelling: Sökö. An interesting fact is that sökö is a poker term used for checking in Finland ( I check = minä sökötän ).

so ummmmmmm

have you heard of it before? is it a nice game? Confused i like RAZZ and Stud8 but im not sure about 5 card stud... should i give it a try?

gimme your oppinions fellas! Sleepy

EDIT: argh! i was hittin the submit button for the poll too early. the positive No-answer, the negative No-answer and the i dont care-answer are missing in the poll. and i cant delete or edit this. Shock

please admin. HELP! Sad

EDIT2: the question in the poll also should be if you have played soko before. this thread is sorta messed up. sorry! Aww crap!

I have heard the term "sökötän" and games name "Sökö" as well.
But never played this, and I didn't know rules either before you explained.

I play Texas Hold'em, doesn't make sense to play other types of poker because I'm bad in it and I don't want to lose money.
