Default Re: Stud vs Hold Em (low content)

Well, I don't think you're going to find too many people who agree with that on this forum. I'm mostly a stud and stud/8 player, but I play hold'em and Omaha/8 well enough that I can get the money in good games. I'm playing badugi for the first time right now. I have no idea what I'm doing, but the early returns are pretty good.

On the other hand, I know a lot of very good hold'em players who just got pummeled when stud/8 got hot in my local room a few years ago, and again when Omaha/8 got hot for a while. I actually think that someone is a hold'em player first would be more inclined to specialize than someone who specializes in stud. The hold'em player is always able to find a game. The stud or Omaha player isn't.
