Ha ha. I don't know what your talking about.
My apologies @abby99 , what is your experience with this game, if you don't mind sharing
Well, I've played it but am far from being an expert. Most of my experience is with Scrotum 8 (high/low split, 8 qualifier).
Although I haven't studied the game much, I have observed some common errors, most of which occur pre-flop. Forgetting that you have to play every card you keep is a big one. Holding two pair or trips is good, but don't keep a fourth card with trips even if it is a pretty Ace. If you keep AA236, you cannot make a qualifying low because of the pair.
Pay close attention to the number of cards kept by your opponents.
@inca911 explained the game very well in his earlier post.
Thanks Abby, he sure did
Is the game played with a limit structure or big bet ?
We play it pot limit.
Which, for @detroitdad is effectively NL, especially if Andy is at the table.
I thought we played it NL but now I remember why.
Can be played either way; and imo works very well with both betting structures.
As one might suspect, the limit version typically has more hands seeing flops, and lots of drawing hands sticking around to the river. Which does (or should) affect one's starting hand choices.... but that is somewhat rare, since most players won't be playing optimally.
