2-7 game in SoCal area!?!?! Willing to PM me with info? I LOVE KC Lowball, and used to play it with friends regularly. Funny thing is we are all 19-21, and probably extremely rare people my age played that game regularly.

Anyways, IMHO, these are good tips:

Cash-

As with any game, later position means you can open up more. I feel you can draw to 10's, rougher 9's OTB, and stay pat with J's every so often.

MP smooth 9's and better are always playable, 2 card 7 low draws are ok for a limp, as long as no raise ahead. Cite gap concept here, and 4-card 7's are always playable for a raise, or even a shove if its to the nuts. I think this goes for any position IMO.

EP, 8's and smooth smooth 9's. Never draw to worse than a 9-7 low, and even that is iffy.

As always, if you opponents suck, you can loosen calling standards.

Tourney:

Play 7-low draws more aggressively, and be willing to gamble more with 2 card draws against small stacks, as long as its not a lot of your chips. Tend to stand pat in position more, esp. when opponent is AI. You can rap pat with a Q-low w/ pos. against very small shorty, and J-low is small favorite against 1-card draw. Be willing to gamble a little more here, as you won't get many playable hands as much as you would in other games.

Super System is the only source of KC lowball information that I have ever found. Its not even covered in The Education Of A Poker Player by Herbert Yardley, its rare to find info.

It is also found in PL & NL Poker by Ciaffone and Reuben.

Yes, although the chapter focuses on A-5 and has like 1/3 of a page on "adjusting to 2-7".

If there are a lot of people drawing 3, you don't need our help. Drawing 3 is really terrible. If for some reason you get caught drawing 3, just snow.

The only time I drew 3 was in the BB in a limped pot. And I ended up hitting it one time. That was fun.
