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.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
