A card room in my city has face up MS Stud where players are allowed to flip their hole cards and show the rest of the table. I assume that basic MS Stud strategy should be modified if the player has knowledge of all the cards on the table, especially if the table is full. Could such a strategy be developed, and more importantly, is it possible that playing face up significantly decreases the house edge/element of risk or even turns it in favor of the player? Or, even with it being played face up, is the variance still too high to gain an advantage?

I would assume you mean Face Up as opposed to Heads Up. Two completely different things.

I would assume that would definitely change your strategies and lower the house edge.

Yes, face up, thank you.

What we would need to find is the math report on collusion of the game, or someone who evaluated it. My guess is Eliot Jacobson most likely did an APheat column on it and that's where to look first.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
