Interesting discussion on possible need for language change related to games played with minimum openers such as NL Lowball. See thread here:

Add to this discussion clarifying the rule for silent overchips used for the stud bring-in.

Hello Mike,

 The rules that pertain to the bring in for stud might be a bit confusing because it seems to go against the normal oversize chip rule. I have not dealt stud for a while but, tossing a $5 chip into the pot, in a $1 to $5 spread limit, with the lowest door card was regarded as a $1 bring-in unless a different amount were stated. I don't have the rule in front of me but I'm sure I can find it.

 Anyone not familiar with the rule might easily force the bring-in to be $5.

 Mike, if this is not what you're looking for, let me know.

Right, that's a great example of the issue we should consider putting in writing.
