Oh, and as far as advice on Stud 8 and LO8, play hands that win the whole pot. You're not playing to split, unless they pot is very multi-way.
The best starting hand possible in omaha 8 is A♣
3♠. You have 3 low cards, two suited aces, an overpair that can make top set, and all 3 cards can work together to make straights.
The best possible stud 8 hand is rolled up trips A♣A♥
A♠. However, 3 cards to a straight flush like 4♣5♣6♣
is almost as strong.
So the trick is to make strong two way hands, or make hands that are a lock to win the high, and force your opponent to draw to the low half without odds
to do so.
