7 card stud tournament assistance

I'm going on a trip to Foxwoods next week and the only tournament that I will be able to play in is a 7 card stud tourny. I've played this for cash but never in a tournament. Does anyone have any advice? This is straight stud, no hi-lo.

My advice.

Play more hands early, as cheap as you can.

If you sit and wait for 3 to the straight/flush, or three big cards, you could be there anted away.

what type of hands would you play early? low pair, 3 high, 3 to the straight with 2 gaps?

I would play one gappers to the straight. 7 8 10 for example. I would also play low pairs through the cheap streets as well.

I would also keep a mental note on how many players make it past 5th street, and the winning cards for the first 5 hands. This should give you a pretty good idea on how loose/tight the table is.

Stud is a completely different monster, especially when compared to HE.

I am not a Stud tourney veteran, but I have played in a dozen of them or so. I have placed in the money 5 times, and the final table twice.

Would you also see 4th with 2 to the flush if both flush cards were hidden? Still talking early on.

yes, especially if they have straight possibilities.

Jam the pot with rolled up aces.

Thanks for the advice.

Has anyone been to Foxwoods? How big should I expect this tournament to get? Do I have an realistic shot of getting in the money? I have played cash stud to good results.

You should post these types of questions on 2+2. Posting them here would be like going to a poker forum and asking when a certain DVD is going to come out.
