Stud 8 Players Ignoring Too Many Obvious Spots

Stud 8 Wheel
The more I cover poker, the more I realize that the average competency in certain mixed games seems to be steadily dropping. The game where I am seeing the most decay seems to be Stud 8. It really stuck out like a sore thumb this summer while watching some of the coverage of the WSOP but I also have been noticing this trend for a while in the online arena. Players have gotten too loose with their Stud 8 play and seem to practically ignore certain obvious spots.

Phil Wins 10th 430x286
The 2014 World Series of Poker is now concluded until November and this year's series has proven the most successful in history. Back in mid-May, I made my annual WSOP prediction and once again, I cranked out more wins than losses, but just barely. Ivey and Hellmuth Win Bracelets - Daniel Blanks -- Result: 2/3 Credit Selbst Wins Women Make an Impact - Result: Half Credit At Least Two Qualifiers from WSOP. com Make the November Nine --Result: Fail Mixed Game Tournament Set Records - Result: Epic Win Main Event Field = 7,063 - Result - Half Credit.

Congratulations to future the 2014 Big One for ONE DROP champion. On paper, you will take home $20 million in prize. How much will that champion take home in reality? Good question. Greg Merson recently spoke on the realities of many pros playing in the ONE DROP event.

Oh, WSOP banner staff. How we love to make fun of you. In case you haven't heard, there was a small problem with Ryan Riess' WSOP Champion's banner. Can you spot it? That's right folks.
