I have been having fun playing a little Stud-8 lately. Of all the hi-lo games I barely know how to play this is the most fun one. I am not very good at it. I seem to be better than the competition at .50/1 or even 1/2.. but still, not very good. Stud is a nice relaxing game for me. Unlike NLHE. The game of NLHE is like a stock broker job on Wall Street. It is high stress. High anxiety. Action. Speed. Fun. It tends to wear you out sometimes. Stud is like coming home to relax on the beach after work. It is soothing. I am sure if I was good enough to remember each card dealt it would be alot harder. Something about the game is just relaxing. I think it might be because you almost always can tell where you are. Sure people can bluff at the flush or pretend to have boated up. On occassion you get tricked by hidden quads or boats. It is much easier to see where you might be in relationship to everyone else though. Now if I could get Don to stop calling me an Old Man I would be all set.
