for the H/L part, it's just like omaha vs omaha 8 or better.other than that, it's just like regular Stud.

The golden rule of Stud Hi/lo 3 high, 3 low, but never 3 in the middle. You want to play hands that can scoop, dont chase half a pot. For a low to qualify you have to have 5 cards of 8 or lower.You never want second best hand in this game. That's all the info I can think of in a short summarized timeframe.Quick hand example(hole cards) - up cardYou (As3s) 8s 4c5s9s (2d)Donk1 (9d9c) 7h JcKd10h (Ac)Donk2 (JhKc) 10s 4h7dQc (Qh)

Stud game with a split pot, so any 5 cards for either high or lowLow must be 8 or lowerBest starting hand is 3 low suited cards (A,2,3s - 2,4,6s etc.)If you are coming in high, make sure you are against one player only, you might very well be playing for half the pot. So if pot has $20 and it cost you $2 to call, you are risking $2 to win $10...so make sure you're highs are locks before you pounding with your 2 pair.The secret that Checky taught me is to have 3 low cards to start,, make a low hand and back into a straight, flush or trips/2 pair to win high as well.If more than one guy is going low, with raises etc, and you have split Kings, fold preflop. you are playing for half the pot.

Double threadaments.I like to fall bass akwards into str8s and flushes as well. Make sure to remember the up cards your opponents have, those are potential outs.

Oops ! That would have been good to know a little sooner. I kept calling if I had no pair, wondering why I wasn't getting the low :D Thanks for the help guys. I might have to really learn this someday. I have no idea what I am doing......and I've been in the top 50% (mostly top 10%) since it started :D

Remember how bad people were at hold'em on Party? Multiply that by about 2-3 billion.That's how bad they suck.

I still don't know why Napa_Don quit playing Stud8, he pwned the games on Party.Pretty easy to turn a profit in this game once you understand it, most people don't know what they're doing.

What are your opinions. I know in stud hi/lo if you are three handed or heads up in a pot and you have a low made and they are strictly going high and you are drawing to a flush, inside straight, or have an open ended straight, it is typical to ram and jam it with the low locked up and drawing to scoop. Some people say this is only appropriate in tournaments because there is no rake and it is dumb to do it in cash tables because of the split and the high rake...what are your opinions...i usually still ram and jam

if it is heads up, ramming and jamming with a low vs an obvious very strong high hand that you cannot draw to scoop will net you no profit at showdown. But if its 3-handed, ramming and jamming will extract a SB from one of the strictly going high hands on each street assuming they c/c, amirite?If it is heads up, ramming and jamming with a low /w a scoop draw is a good thing, is it not? I mean if the two of you end up checking it down to 7th street and you make your scoop draw then and then you put in a bet, you've only managed to get 1 extra bet out of the villan. But if you picked up your low draw on 5th street and managed to bet at it and have him c/c the whole way, thats a whopping 3 BBs you get out of the villan (as opposed to 1 BB). If you bet on the come and miss, then the two of you split with a miniscule loss to the rake. Hell, if you keep betting from 5th to 7th and the villan RAISES and then you make your hand, you'll be getting more than 3 BB than him. Dont forget about the tilt you will induce when you table you hand and show him how aggressively you bet /w only a low.I am by no means a stud 8/b expert, and i think that i've found myself to be a losing player ever since i've started playing. Maybe someone can explain to me why from what i've posted?
