My only knowledge of Razz is first-hand experience, I have not read much advice or strategy on it, but I am best at it by just waiting and waiting and waiting for premium starting cards and quitting early if I doesn't stay good (no big cards). This seems similar to a good foundational game plan for Stud-8 (deviating as necessary if you see an exploitable situation, or it is otherwise favorable to do so) only you have to be even tighter because your not just waiting for very good low cards but straitening and suited low cards.
The "you can win high too or at least half the pot with a qualifying low" being the sucker draws (and by draws I mean an enticement or bait, not a poker-hand draw).
Where am I going wrong?
