These pages seldom see poker advise of any sort. Simply the occasional “Be Damned!”, elicited by some stupid quirk of wrongful behavior on my part. However, in recent days several have commented on the play in Hi/Low games.
Over the past few turns at the tables on both Stars and Full Tilt, the largest “kinky” line of reasoning I can make out is the folks seem to think A2 in their hand clinches low for them.
As an example: They hold A2, and here I abbreviate substantially, the board comes 5728, they hold an 87 for low and seem very surprised when the opponent shows 34 for a 75 for low.
There are other combinations, yes.
I suppose I can put it another way: You calculate Low by reading the High of the possible Low.
