Re: Stud8 23-5 rainbow at microstakes 8-game on stars

On 3rd i like the limp UTG to try to keep the hand multiway. After it's completed and 5-way action to you it's a great time to 2b and make a pot. You will have a definite equity edge here even with the dead 4 and 6.
4th is a HUGE lead, even after just calling on 3. In general in stud/8 if you just mindlessly lead every time you catch and Ace you will be playing pretty okay. In this case, it's much better than mindless as you have a wheel draw. As played, raise 4th when it gets back to you. Two players caught bricks and you have the smoothest low draw as well as ace high and a chance to scoop.
5th lead again. You have the only complete low and a wheel draw for high. Raise once it gets back to you for value and protection.
6th and 7th seem fine.

Re: Stud8 23-5 rainbow at microstakes 8-game on stars

Thanks a lot for the great analysis, I have couple of questions if that's ok

3rd street:
because my hand was rainbow I did not think is good enough to be raising at any point on the 3rd.
Could you please explain why it actually is strong enough to raise?

4th street:
I did not think I had a chance to scoop there at all heh
I think it was because of a flush draw showing at seat 2 and also couple of dead wheel outs.
So that's what I was thinking - could you please advise what I should be thinking instead?

5th street:
Yeah I did not notice that I have the only low hyhy

Re: Stud8 23-5 rainbow at microstakes 8-game on stars

Your hand has long-term equity odds on 3rd, and 4th. Your play is somewhat passive. When your long-term odds of getting the straight for both, or just the low for half, you should be finding ways to put as many bets in as possible. Especially on 4th street. Limping to re-raise on 3rd is good. On 5th, and 6th you have the nuts for the low end, nobody could have a better low at that point. You need to learn how to read the nuts faster in Stud 8/b.

i dont know why you never bet or raise. are you playing other hands this way also.

the pot got big without your help so you got lucky but still could have won more.

generally when it looks like you have the best hand you should be betting it.

Results oriented but this probably ended up making the most. That said.

I'd compete on 3rd, unless you are limping all your low hands. I wouldn't break your range up by open limping anything. If the 7 completed I wouldn't 3 bet him(or anyone else)

4th i'd lead given 7 who completed should have bricked. As played 10000000000000000% c/r.

5th I'd jam the 6q2 board You want to charge him max to draw at a low, and you currently have half the pot locked up and 3 people in.

What were you worried about on 5th that you didn't raise but 6th you did?

You forgot to jam 4th and 5th. Especially 5th; seat 1 and 2 are almost certainly going high, so you're the only low left and can freely chop up the 2nd high hand.
