I also consider it has the big test, but the only HORSE i play is some freerolls at PS, so i like to try it but i don’t feel good enough to put my Money on a real game. Even at these freerolls, one have to pay a lot of attention to the game or else we can think we are still in one game and it’s already another, and we will be playing the wrong way.

i only play on stars- and take my shots at freerolls or play money tables, though very rarely. it's a nice game- really keeps you up on your toes, you don't get bored since the game is always changing. what i miss is small stakes tables, low buy in sng's/mtt's...only option is to organize tourney in home games- this way you can setup even $0.10 buyin horse mtt

I like horse I don't really have a clue what I'm doing except in hold em and omaha rounds but whats weird is I donk all my chips on those rounds then win it back on the rounds where I don't know what I'm doing. I also always seem to get deep with less effort on tourneys where I don't know what I'm doing. I know its partly because there is a alot of other people who are the same, but its like I'm more naturally talented at the draw variants of poker. They bore me though.

Love to play and favor RAZZ and Stud H/L, but enjoy the overall challenge. Got hooked on this back during the FT Freeroll days and now there's only a few times a week that I can play HORSE at Carbon. Used to play RAZZ alot by itself, but Carbon doesn't have any of this except of course during the HORSE. Managed to place a few times in the money and 1st in the freeroll quite some time back prior to Carbon. Good Luck and enjoyed!
I've played at PS...one of the games I haven't won a ticket on...I'll keep trying tho...getting close. Last ticket won was in the 8 Game...that took 6.5 hrs to qualify for the ticket....eyes were burnin'

I love HORSE i usually play this game in pokerstar freerolls....only dont have much time to play because it usually last around 6 hours and that a very long time.... playing this game need a lot of concentration because of the changing game format...should always ready to adjust....

I love playing HORSE as I think it stops me from getting bored and gives me the opportunity to improve my understanding of different formats of the game. As Teddybears73 says there are a lot of players who don't know how to play Razz and therefore you get a chance of increasing your stack quite easily. I also think it helps improve your powers of concentration which is very important in poker...............
GL to you all on the tables............................
