Anything But Hold Em

There\’s More to Poker Than Texas Hold Em

Is Stud Worth Learning?

Posted by pmpoker on March 14, 2006

Over in the 2+2 archives is this discussion of whether or not it is worthwhile to learn seven card stud. Back in 1997, Mason Malmuth predicted that seven card stud would never die out like draw poker, but that hold em would come to dominate low and middle limits.

Malmuth later says that you are better of playing hold em if you can’t beat $15/$30 stud. It has been said that 15/30 hold em live is much softer than 15/30 online. I wonder what limit is the online equivalent of 15/30 stud.
