'''Dead cards.''' in any stud game you have a lot more info at your disposal, namely, the dead cards.
'''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.
