Props and Nits

The Stud/8 game at Garden City often has a prop player when one of the tables gets shorthanded. The prop playing on my last visit seemed to play OK (not stellar) Stud/8, but she was not otherwise a particularly professional player. She stomped off in a huff when my 5th street low held up and her better 4th street draw bricked out. When she returned she was too short-stacked to fully capitalize on making aces full vs. trips and a low. Now propping at $4/$8 Stud is probably not all that lucrative in the grand scheme of things, but if you are obligated to play, why not play your best?

The table also featured a lot of whining and complaining about how the cards would have fallen had so-and-so stayed in or dropped out. Overall it was a lot more like the stereotypical Stud game than I had previously experienced.
