Default 2-7 Triple lowball

Recently started playing this on GamesGrid. Inteersting lowball game where you dont necessarily have to have anything at the start because you can trade all of or noone of your cards 3 times! BAsically you get dealt 5 cards down, round of betting ensues, then you trade as many of your acrsd as you want even all 5! round of betting after that and then trade as many crads as you would like again, then repeat this whole process for a third time! best hand is 2 3 4 5 7, because in this game of lowball unlike razz or O8B straights and flushes do count against you. also A is always high, so you dont want anyof them in your hand. A decnt hand at a smalltable table is 8 high and at any ring game it would be nice to have a 7 high. I am just elarning this so if anone out there has any pointers for me I would sure appreciate them. thanks

I've only played a tiny bit, but have found this to be a rather refreshing change. The strategy of drawing, of which I have only a very minimal understanding is particularly intriguing in that getting the wrog card or cards can make your hand a lot worse. So if you're at the third draw with a decent but not great hand like maybe a 9 high, you have to decide whether you want to risk drawing. If you decide to take a card, it might be higher than the 9 you threw away, or it might be lower, but even worse because it pairs one of your other cards.

It's supposedly quite a bluffing game, but that's really all I've learned so far.
