Re: Mundane Stud Hi Hand

I prefer a raise on 3rd street even with the overcards behind you, because, if you just call and they call, too, then you have a harder time knowing what they actually have, plus, you give them a...

Re: 15/30 must see...

Not that it would've changed the outcome or anything, but I may have check/called the flop just in case his preflop 3-bet was with a high-type hand, or an AAXY hand. Not only would you be a clear...

Re: [LO8] to 3bet or not to 3bet?

Every street was bet and raised so I'm pretty sure the rake has already been maxed out.

You have one option on the river and it isn't even close. Reraise. You can NOT lose, and he can. If you can...

Re: (stud8) how best to handle 4th st?

Whether you should check or bet out on 4th street isn't NEARLY as important as the decision you chose on 3rd. Yeah, you can wind up catching good down the road, but you are starting out at a...

Re: Why do people play Hi hands in Stud 8/b???

You asked why people play high hands in stud 8/b. I agree that most high-hand type hands are not going to play well in this game. But, don't let that mislead you into thinking that ALL 3 card low...

Re: Stud8 - play (A8)5 in this spot?

If betting 4th seems pointless, then calling a bet on 5th street shouldn't be far behind.

I would MUCH rather put a feeler bet out on 4th to see how the other (apparent) low draw reacts, and to...

Re: LC: AC this weekend - borgata mixed game interest?

I wouldn't be able to get there until night time (family plans), but I will ask around. And, $30/60 is fine, by the way. The only thing I might consider is changing the game to the Taj, and only...

Re: LC: AC this weekend - borgata mixed game interest?

What limit, exactly...?

I'd probably be interested, but if you're looking to play PL, count me out. I'll play OE (and you'll probably have to twist my arm to add holdem to the rotation.)

Isn't...

Re: Stud8, A8A - capped on 3rd

Rolled Kings would NEVER check 5th street when the action gets to him, especially seeing how ultra aggressive he was before that. When the 9 doorcard makes open J's and checks, if he had KKK, he...

Re: LO8

Hey Buzz,

I guess there is a better chance that the button doesn't take a flier if we handle the flop differently. I agree with that. I guess it's just Howzit's position that makes things uglier...

Re: AKK3 3/6 FLO8

Betting this flop is fine (although noone with an A2 is folding), but, we're trying to knock out anyone who might be sharing an A3, and we're also betting to put pressure on mediocre drawing hands...

Re: To nitty? Stud8

Depends on the players. Would a double raise knock out the Queen? Your implied odds aren't that great, because most astute players won't take their hands pass a certain point if you catch an Ace...

Re: Stud8 Hand

I would 'play' your hand the same way, although my 'thoughts' about betting would greatly differ from yours. And, I'd be very surprised to see you have the best hand when your opponent makes his very...

This is probably one of those rare occasions where I disagree with both you and Buzz. (I must be wrong, then!=) But, I'll tell you why I feel this way anyway...

Re: Stud8 ruling

Well, the rule should still be the same.

When you throw out an oversize chip *without* declaring that you want to raise (whether you shout out, "complete", which is something you might say as the...

Re: Stud8 - cold calling 2 ok with A96 diamonds?

Usually, with these types of hands, I want everything just right. I'm not being a nit, it's just that these hands are trailing to a big pair(like AA), and they are also trailing to a 3 card low. I...

Re: StudH/L 30/60 Question

Raise 5th, see how he and the Q react to it, and reevaluate on 6th. I would think that if the Q doorcard had QQ or better, he would've raised you on 3rd. I think the other player probably hit 2 pair,...

Re: LO8 - Playing bad low hand on button A664

I don't mind the raise preflop at all. You've got position...3 working cards with a suited Ace, and a decent chance to steal the blinds.

Flop: If you can bet that flop against 2 opponents, you...

Re: Help settle an argument between two stud fishies

First things first, you should be raising (or folding) 3rd street with your hand. Normally, this hand would be garbage and is usually a routine fold(middling, double gutter straight cards are not...

Re: Dead Kings

I would fold.

In order for you to feel really good about proceeding on with this hand, is if both low hands catch bricks and/or if noone hits an Ace, because as soon as someone does, it's bye-bye...
