Default 8/b - good laydown on 6th st.?

Didn't think I would get jammed but my 8's were dying like mayflies. Was I correct to wait for a better spot?

7 Card Stud High-Low ($10/$20), Ante $1, Bring-In $3 (converter)

Yeah, it looks like you're drawing dead for high, and there are a lot of Eights gone. I think you did well to let this one go.

Looks good to me.

Anyone raise fourth is this spot? I'm not sure about my thoughts on it since you have two dead eights. I'm thinking I would really like to see the Kings and the A4 fold (which might be possible since he checked already). Thoughts?

the reason I did not raise 4th is because I wanted the kings in there. I have seven high right now, so getting the kings to fold is not going to do me much good. I want the kings to pay me off if I make my straight.

My thinking is this: you want the kings out that way you may be able to steal the high half if you miss your draw but spike a pair.

it is true that you will sometimes make a small pair and take half the pot instead of nothing, but I play a live baby straight draw to scoop huge pots .. these hands were meant for multiway action.
