Default Worst Hand - All Poker Games

All right...so I spoiled the fun in the "Best Hand" thread, and I apologize for that...

Anyway, it's pretty much universally agreed that 27os is the worst Texas Hold'em Starting hand (I disagree, it's the best. I've never lost a big pot with 27os).

So the question is, what are the worst starting hands for all the other forms of poker?

Omaha
Omaha Hi/Lo
7 Card Stud
7 Card Stud Hi/Lo
Razz
5 Card Stud
5 Card Draw
2-7 Triple Draw
A-5 Lowball
Pineapple
Crazy Pineapple
Chinese Poker


Anything else I'm missing...?

I saw a cool game in the "I bet you" show but I don't know how it went exactly. It was 9 card omaha or so and it went about like this:

You have each 9 cards (2 players)
you each discard 2 (7 left)
flop
you each discard 2 (5 left)
turn
you each discard 2 (3 left)
river
you discard 1

best hand wins

could be a mistake in this but it think it was something like this.

In razz, its KKK
In omaha its 2222, same with omaha hi/lo i think
In holdem, 72 offsuit
2-7 triple draw, its AAAAK
A-5 triple draw its KKKKQ
Chinese poker would be 2 3 4 5 7 8 9 10 Q K 2 3 (With no flushes)
The rest im not sure about.

A-Train is correct in that KKK is the worst starting Razz hand. 3 of your 7 cards are kings, and with only 4 cards to come, the best 5 card low you can make is A234K, which is beat by any Queen hand or better...which isn't to terribly hard to make.

In 2-7 Triple Draw, Royal flush is actually the worst hand. Unlike A-5 Lowball, in 2-7 Triple Draw, straights and flushes count (and Ace is always high). That's why 23457 is the absolute best hand, while 23456 is actually quite a terrible hand. Additionally, if you're dealt AAAAK and discard all, you can't possibly draw any more Aces, however if you are dealt a royal flush and discard all, though it's HIGHLY unlikely, it's not entirely impossible to be dealt a royal flush in a different suit.

Hey. I would like to talk about football betting based on the Martingale strategy, or, as the people say, the Dogon strategy. In the classic version of the Martingale strategy, each of our new bets doubles if the previous step is unsuccessful.
Football is good because it allows players to choose the type of bets to taste. I am wondering if I can use this betting system here http://103.109.101.65/MewahBet/JudiO...club-mewahbet/ ? Some say it only works in poker and roulette. Thank you all for your comments.
