In certain circumstances the HA could be reduced. IE if you have a K high straight and both of your neighbors had pocket Aces, then you would know that your straight would beat any dealer straight. In the instance of a straight you would make the additional bets anyways though. There are probably instances where sharing of information could lower the edge, but I don't see where it could be enough to be an advantage play.

I'm not a math person, so I could be wrong, but the HA and knowing other cards on this particular game is much less than Shufflemaster's sister game, Ultimate Texas Hold Em.

Since the bets are flat bets, and you play most hands for the one larger bet you make, the only pre-flop hands would be the two small cards suited, if you know most of your suit is out on the table. You may also skip a post flop bet on the come if you know your cards are already out there. In UTH though, you can go up to 4x, or as little as 1x and knowing other cards is more significant on that game.

Neither game would take this to an advantage play, unless you are cheating though.

If I had 8, 3 unsuited, the strategy says that I should not fold. If I knew that my neighbors held an 8 or a 3, I would then fold.

This situation is exactly why I like to know what cards my wife has (and anyone else at the table who wants to "root" for their cards to come out).
