Stud Poker The section of the forum is specifically for strategy questions relating to, or specific hands from stud, stud 8, or razz, of any stakes.Posting Hands In order to receive feedback from others regarding questions pertaining to specific hands, we ask the you follow a couple simple rules: 1. Convert Your Hands Several websites provide programs that will convert your hand from the raw hand history provided by the poker software into a clearer, more appealing layout. All you have to do is copy the raw hand history text and paste it into the input section, press the convert button, and copy and paste the output into your post here. We recommend the following sites: Stud Converter: http://www.andyblack.../converter.html

Supports: Various sites, including PokerStars, Full Tilt, etc.

Using this converter to post here, select either UBB Code Format, or Plain Text. Works for Razz, Stud Hi, and Stud 8. When using UBB Code format, you must manually input a space between the rank of the card and the code for the suit icon (J<space>:club:, for example.)

Note: From time to time poker sites will change their HH format, the converting sites will go down, or you will come across a hand from a site that is not yet compatible with the converters. If this should happen, please take a few minutes to manually convert the hands from the raw HH to a more friendly format, including information such as number of players in the pot, pot size, stack sizes for NL/PL and please replace the screennames with positions.[/i]2. Do Not Include ResultsYou did not know what the other person had at the time of playing the hand, so there's no reason that we should know them. Essentially, posting results influences the way posters reply, whether they know it or not, and it encourages results-based thinking, which is the opposite of what we should be doing. 3. Additional InformationBe sure to include anything that you knew of at the time of playing the hand. For example, any reads or notes you have on the important players, including any PokerTracker stats that you may have. With respect to PT stats, we use the layout VP$IP/PFR/AF/Hands (Voluntarily Put Money in the Pot/Preflop Raise %/Aggression Factor/Number of Hands). For more information relating to PokerTracker, please visit this thread or check the forums at http://pokertracker.com. 4. Descriptive Post TitleAlthough this won't be strictly enforced, I feel it would be quite helpful if the titles of posts for specific hands be titled including certain information. Specifically, please include stakes, site, and a brief description of the hand/decision. Ie. "3-flush on 4th Street - 1/2 on Stars"What Not to Post
  • Please do not post very general questions. Since poker is such a situational game, asking something like "what do you do with JJ preflop?" is not going to get you anywhere.
  • Please do not post bad beats in the strategy forum, they belong in the Bad Beat Forum.
  • Please do not make brag posts with no strategic content.
  • Please do not post hands just because you thought they were funny, or because there was a big pot, etc. Again, we're looking for strategic content.


Thank you for following these rules and helping keep the FCP Strategy Forums clean, and helpful to those who are looking to improve their game.- Zach

Zach is right about pretty much everything.
