re: Poker & 5 Card Draw
It's been a while since I've played any 5 card draw, It's one of my favorites though. I'm not an expert at it but I used to do well in the 25cent pot limit games on pokerroom. You realy have to pay atention to what everyone is doing and make sure to watch the draw to try and get all the info you can. But watch out for peoples tricks. I like to start with a pair of 10's or better and I usualy come out betting(not so much with the 10's). If you are dealt trips you can draw only 1 card to make them think you have 2pair or a draw but you need to make sure to mix it up a bit. Be careful with a low set, these can lose you alot of money if you're up against a higher one. If your dealt a pair of A's raise them, you probly have the best hand. Same goes for K's and Q's. Just watch how everyone else acts and you should do fine.
Do you play limit or PL? I've only ever played limit a couple times in home games, don't care for it much.
