re: Poker & Are 7 Cards Stud and 7 Cards Stud Hi/Lo worth learning?
completely agree with hoodookoo, in 7 card stud you need lot of mathematical skills and memory to remember all the cards that have been dealt since the beginning to the end of the hand. the 2 worst things in my opinion about these games is that you cant find a PL version neither in pokerstars
or full tilt poker
of these styles, ( i dont know why really) making it only a fixed limit game which is kind of boring sometimes. especially when there are lots of players in the pot chasing flushes or straight and you have a set or a good 2 pairs and cant do anything to make these players fold their hands.
Also you cant multi table on these games just like holdem because you need to remember the cards that are being dealt so this makes those games pretty hard to multi table. i cant see myself playing in more than 2 of the games at the same time. nevertheless you should try playing in those games because they are by far the most skilled poker variant out there.
