In Stud/8, it's important to remember that THIS IS NOT HOLDEM. there are major differences that one must account for, primarily:
'''Dead cards.''' in any stud game you have a lot more info at your disposal, namely,
tyhe dead cards. keep tack of the cards that have been shown and you will have a HUGE advantage over the other players. it's very difficult to remember each and every card, so concentrate on remembering those cards that either you or your opponents may have needed- straight cards, flush cards, dead low cards, etc... i cannot stress enough how important this is.
'''Fluid position.''' In stud, position is apt to change with each round of play. Keep in mind that raising for a free card when you are in late position may backfire if you pair off and are suddenly in first position. Experience alone will help you understand position in stud games, it's very difficult.
