      NH Sir. I'm not a Razz expert in the least, but with your starting hand looking so good from the start, it would be hard to much on 6th street. But a lot of your cards are already out there, so a fold there wouldn't have been bad either.

      Razz cost me A LOT of money before I started to learn the nuances of the game.

      Standard, aye. You deffo want as much as money as you can push in on the third and fourth (though raising on third is always a contested issue...), and with such a smooth draw against such rough boards, I don't see how you can fold even with the sixes out. You still have good equity against typical razz hands; though the seat 8 might have 6 made if he's playing a (baby-baby)9.

      You hit the hand, you get the money in, and that's the way the razz goes. :f_cool:
