In Stud High you have to pay attention to having a decent starting hand, calculating pot odds thoroughly, reading your opponents and finding the right spot for stealing the bring in and the antes. The following example was played against one of the most known female poker players: Cyndy Violette.

The above mentioned game was $2/$4 Stud High with $0,40 ante and 8 players. The player with 3c brought in for $0,50, Cyndy Violette (from now on Cyndy) called with a 7c, the next 4 players folded. I completed to $2 with a Ad (hidden cards: Th7s). This completed the nut bring in for $0,50-$1,75. Now it is simple to calculate pot odds and DA (dependent on your position in the SNG). In this case pot odds were 3:1 or 3:1. DA was $2.50: $0.75. Now pot odds were 3:1 or 3:1. Therefore the pot odds were 3:1 which means the winning DA was 3.75: $0.75. This means that the player who brought in $0,50 won $3.75 ($3 for bring in + $1 for DA). Therefore the player won the game brought in by DA = $0,50-$1 = $3.75.

You can make a unsimplied Pot Odds formula by calculating the difference between true odds, the odds brought about by adding the bring in to the pot odds, and the true odds. For example, your odds for calling a $2/$4 Stud Hurdn with 3c on the bring in are 5:1. Therefore to become an arber you need a 24% probability of success, this is 5%. The odds of achieving success are closer to 70% in the limit case.

When you are a beginner and you hold a low hand there is no DA, therefore pot odds are 3:1, and you earn $3 for every $1 bet. In the limit case the pot odds are 3:1, therefore the expected profit is $4 for each $1 bet. This is only an initial calculation, the actual odds might be slightly different so you need to check these numbers. You need to be able to check Your hole card Ariel. You need to be able to check the numbers of the opponents and be able to identify ANS,PE,AC,NGAME and others.

The bring in in the limit case is Tracker Odds (that is when the odds are in your favor). You need to calculate your DA on the spot in the limit case. In the no limit case the Odds have to be calculated every time the stakes go up. The bring in in the limit case is the% of all the pot that you have to contribute. This is the denominator for the arber. The arber needs to exploit the percentage of the pot contribution in the limit case.

In the no limit case the pot contribution is small, less than 5% of the pot. If the pot contribution is 2% the Trader need to play a different strategy. In this case he need to estimate the percentage of the pot contribution and bet accordingly. The internet poker tracking software is an excellent help, for both novice and professional. You can use the software to estimated the pot contribution. The most ideal for novices is to use the online kartupoker tracking software to gather information, then you need to train the novices regarding poker.
