Quite typical. People really have no idea how to play Razz.

Most people see the name "Razz" and think ooh sweet! That sounds fun! But yea, most people haven't the first clue when it comes to playing low games, especially razz... especially people online!

Personally, I think it is important to be able to play a wide variety of games well. If you take a look at the best players in poker... (Chan, Hellmuth, Brunson, Nguyen, Negreanu, etc..) all play a variety of games well.. limit/pot limit/no limit, holdem, omaha, stud, draw, low and hi/lo variants.

I am personally of the belief that knowledge in other games can help your play in others... and help your all-around poker skills in general.

So, peoples.... do yourself a favor and start branching out your game! learn omaha, stud, draw, etc. It's fun... and rewarding!
