Most important part of stud would be scanning the table and remembering cards that were folded by other players, in order to recognize how many of your outs are live.
Lets say I pick up 8-9-10 dimes, I scan the board and there is not 1 dime, 7 or jack showing, this hand is very strong because everyone of your 4th street improvement cards are live. Lets say I improve on 4th street by picking up the jack of clubs, minor improvement, but improvement towards making a big hand. Scan the board, 4 other players in, who improved, who picked up one of my out cards, and now, did either of the other 3 players who folded, fold a queen. And, am I holding out cards for the other players.
Drawing hands are very tricky to play, but fun to win big pots with !
On the other hand, be careful not to overplay large hidden pairs, like aces or kings, hidden is the key word, your opponents don't know you have aces, you can get caught up in big pots while your opponent catches a second pair and you never do, while pounding away on every street. I like to complete with this hand, then get alittle passive with it, and let the split queens bet into me, acting like I completed with split 10's and now i'm scared. In the meantime, by 5th street, I have a queen now, and my 3rd, 4th and 5th street cards are live(remember, I know every live card thats been folded, because I've made a mental picture of every hand since the start of the hand), and he isn't showing anything drawing. My odds are very high to win this hand, and now I can safely raise him, at a point where he just put out the big bet and committed himself.
What on God's earth am I talking about !
