Scooping is the platinum rule for split pot games, smart players say, and something to always ask yourself about when employing good hand selection at the outset of any pot: am I playing for the whole pot, or just for half? If the answer is the latter, strongly consider folding.

This six-card straight flush is the definition of overqualified; sadly I bubbled this H.O.R.S.E. tourney despite this massive scoop in the mid-stages of the tourney. I like to call Stud8 the freeroll level in such tourneys.
