The biggest change in a $ 1 -4-8-8 game from a $4-8 or $3-6 game is that you can see many more flops because of the lower price and high implied odds. You still have to watch your position, because a $4 raise destroys the implied odds you were hoping to get by sneaking in for $2. But as you get to middle position, you can start to play almost any hand that can flop big, assuming you can do it for one bet. Any suited ace, king, queen, or jack. Any suited connector, one-gap, or two-gap. Any pair.
