So my casino has 7-stud but it's only a 2-6 no ante spread limit, and it's usually the older crowd looking for a more casual game that's interested. I've always wanted to try pot limit stud with $1 antes but for some reson none of the hardcore players that usually play holdem want to try stud with serious rules. Why is that? What about this game itself is unappealing?

I believe 7 stud is a much harder game and beginners tend to lose a lot more while learning. Secondly it does not play well on television so the younger casual poker fan has not been exposed to it.

in my brief experience with it, everything DRich said was true, and I also found that the local players colluded more in that game, taking turns letting the fish (me) get killed. Haven't played it for years after a few bad experiences, though.

Pot limit stud is rough game with the extra betting round because Stud is sort of a "chasing game". And the hardcore players haven't played Stud enough to be good at it. They would rather play BigO or whatever...lol I dunno why that game took off in our area...meh I would love to get a Stud8 game going. Love that game. Played that before Harrah's Tunica closed, had a ball.

Stud is a game that requires most memorization and hence most skill. An example. I had hidden jacks with a 6 showing as the door card. Two other jacks were also shown. I knew I had the best starting hand but I had to fold because I knew with four players playing for the pot, it was unlikely I would win.

Also, you have to keep track of how many discarded suits and cards were played.

In Holdem, all you will ever see at most is 8 cards.

I just don't get how anybody could like Omaha better than stud, I HATE getting trips in the hole so much. I guess I just like having all my cards all to myself. Everybody thinks it's so weird that I'm 25 and like stud.

It's also worse for the pros which makes it harder to get games going and keep them going through slow periods. Hold'em is more fast paced, so you can get more hands in, and it can be played for longer since it doesn't require as much concentration to remember, and make decisions on, all the cards that are out and/or folded.

5 board. 2 your hand. 1 peek at neighbor who refuses to protect his cards despite you telling him three times that you can see them.

So people still usually chase pretty far even with a pot limit/ante? If so I guess that would explain it, still it would be nice to have a higher stake game with bad beat/high hand jackpots because then there wouldn't be any of that "both your hole cards have to play" crap. 2-6 spread limit no ante doesn't even bring in enough rake to cover costs let alone have a jackpot.
