Pot limit or spread limit could add some interesting challenges to 7-stud. It would be easier to stop some of the chasers who will see any pair with an ace to the river. I kinda like the idea of a spread-limit game.
However, my sense is that NL would make the game a bit of a mess. With 5 betting opportunities and the already complicated task of following the up/folded cards, I think NL might not work so well.
T1riel, maybe I should finally breakdown and buy SS. My wife will scream if she finds another poker book on the bathroom shelf...but I could tell her that this one will complete my library! (Until the next book is published...)
