I agree with the other points but this is a valid one.
I find playing STUD that patience, in the early stages, is very important.
I`m sure some of the guys don`t know what they are doing and the number of cards on show starts to puzzle them more.
Obviously, playing holdem u see your 2 hole cards then 5 community cards.
At a full stud table they can contend with their 7 + possibly as many as 20+ other cards. So I think, even more than in holdem, they concentrate on their own hand and are almost blind to other people.
