Assuming you mean:

A Bring in, B complete, C raises, D re-raises, so the next raise caps it unless you're in Vegas.

If the players left to act are competent and reasonably tight, I'd say most rolled trips (though I'd be more likely to cap 222-555) and 3 consecutive low suited cards that are live.

There are probably others, but there's probably multiple *it depends* circumstances for anything other than the two best stud8 starting hand types.

I'm guessing he just meant calling vs. a complete and a raise.

No, actually I meant calling vs a re-raise as Kurn said, sorry guys for being so much "beginner" :-)

So, as a rule of thumb, you'd fold hands like 234 or A23 rainbow and AA2, correct? Thanks a lot

Depends on how live I think my hand is, how LAG I think the players are who've shown aggression, etc.

Example: If the complete is a LAG and shows a 6, the raiser shows a K and the 3-bettor shows a 2, I'm probably capping (AA)2. (A2)3 depends on the other door cards.

(AA)2 is a very strong hand to fold, and I don't think you're going to run into a top-2 hand type that frequently in this scenario, as hands this strong tend to make a bit of slowplay rather than attempting to blow everyone else out of the pot.

I wouldn't fold any of those. Depends on up cards and players, but hard to fold AA, low 3-flush or 3-straight, or A and 2 decent low cards.

Not sure why you would be concerned about this scenario in particular. It's so insanely rare.

Re: Stud8, which hands can at least cold call an early position 3 bet?

I'm calling a wide range of hands for a re-raise here especially if re-raise is from a J-K (2bets)...even hands like A26, 246, 764 play well enough post if cards are live. Equities run so close its fine. It also depends mostly on the ante structure but in 1/5-1/3 ante games you are rarely incorrect in playing the majority of 3 cards to a low, at least for 1 bet, so playing even just slightly stronger low hands for 2 bets is ok too. Many opponents will play bad enough on later streets, especially 5th, where if you are a competent player you want to play a lot of pots.
