Re: Playing Baby Straight-Flush Starters Too Aggro on Early Streets?

Here are a bunch of hand histories. I am only somewhat interested in comments on my line of play on individual play on the level of "I would have checked instead of betting here." I am doubting my...

Playing Baby Straight-Flush Starters Too Aggro on Early Streets?

I am conducting a serious review of my results in stud/8 using Poker Tracker. I have 46,000 hands under my belt -- I wish I had more, but this is enough for a start.

One of the things that has...

Re: Stud8 - slowplaying monster that does well multiway

I essentially never bring it in for the full amount. A loose-passive game like you describe might be the occasion to do so, though.

Bet or raise every other opportunity you get in this hand. You...

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

The best way to clear the field is to announce that the freeroll tournament is beginning, and hope they time out while trying to sign up. Nobody is going nowhere at this limit.

Betting out can...

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

Sure the eight in your hand sucks; but you really don't know whether the bring-in's hand has actually improved, or if she caught a sucker pair of deuces, or started out with a pair, etc.

You may...

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

Running hands on twodimes is invaluable; and at the same time it is well to remember that one's equity on third or fourth street can be very misleading. Sure you can have more than your share of...

Re: Another multiway stud/8 hand

What Andy said, except I think a reraise when the action comes round again on third street is mandatory.

Re: Weird folds in stud8

In the first hand, it sure looks to me like the villain has a hand like (KK)4 or (JJ)4 -- (QQ)4 is a little less likely because a Q is gone. I know some players who are that aggressive with small...

Re: Stud 8 / H.O.R.S.E. Live: Where to find a game?

A year and a half ago I played in a 50-100 HOSE game one night in a week I spent at Foxwoods. They spread 75-150 half-stud half-stud/8 regularly too.

Re: Stud hi call down with two pair

Small pairs are playable in the right circumstances when you know what you are doing. Small pairs with brick kickers go into the muck without thinking.

Fold third, check-fold or check-raise...

Re: Stud 8: did I miss a bet?

I don't like reraising on third street here. Above and beyond the fact that OP says that there is little fold equity here, the basic situation is that the OP is behind, and, while getting a decent...

Re: aces in stud 8

There are two differences between aces and queens in stud/8. Both are huge.

First, there are no possible overpairs to aces. If you start with queens, and the villain on a low draw catches a king...

Re: To nitty? Stud8

You've got a crippled low hand, and a mediocre high hand at best. An overcard is active in the hand.

Muck it and wait for a better opportunity.

Re: Best site for Stud?

The antes are bigger on FT, but the bring-in is smaller. Stars' stud bring-in is 1/2 SB, which sucks runny eggs.
