    Stud Help...8 GAME

    I have been playing alot of 8 GAME, 4/8 on stars lately and I am finding my weakest game is stud. I find guys calling down with split 2's and hitting 2 pr on river or trips. Beating my split aces when I complete. Is this just due to variance. I an not a fan of calling with small splits, I am more inclined to draw until 5th if I am sitting with 2 in the hole. Looking for thoughts. I tend to play 3 suits stong if they are together ie; 8h, 9h, Jh. Is this prefitable in the long run.
    Thanks.

    If they are calling all the way with split deuces, then Stud is probably their weakest game, too. No problem with playing 3 suited strong on third street, but do not go crazy with it, and the example given is about as low as you should take it.

    lol

    no.

    play anything suited or connected with your door cards and draw to the nuts

    ive played alot of 8 game at that limit against "frys wit dat" and "talon chick" and ive done some damage there drawing to flushes and straights, and even 2 pr...

    you can work them if you are smart, seriously just out play them, all the people that play 8 game are stations... you can easily pwn their 2 pair a high percent of the time as long as your hand selection is mediocre.

    if you want a pretty good starting door card selection in stud then PM me and i can give u the chains on how to crush the 8 game regs... they really are really bad.

    Sorry, thought you were asking about Stud, rather than Stud8.
    Man does, woman is.
