Seven Stud Preflop Strategy

published on 12/16/08 at 10:20 am

You are sitting at an eight player seven stud cash table.

You are dealt the Ace of spades and King of spades down, with the Ten of hearts on top.

Your opponent’s door cards are Five of hearts, Ace of clubs, Jack of diamonds, Queen of spades, Eight of diamonds, Nine of clubs, and Two of hearts.

There have been three callers before the action comes around to you.

    Many people would call here, but I think the wiser move is to fold since several of the cards you need to make a nut-straight (broadway) are counted out.

    You don’t have a three-flusher and another ace is out there so the likelihood of making your pair is reduced.

    These three callers might have rolled up pairs or something. Why else would they have called?

    Better not to get into a chase situation.

    Great comment, Deanna. I think a few people will agree with your reasoning.

    I agree with Deanna simply because i have no formal experience with this game and because she is the wisest poker player i know.

    I was originally going to say Call, but I didn’t feel good about it. After reading Deanna’s comment, I realize why.
