Video Poker Tips and Tricks
If you enjoy playing video poker but don’t seem to be having much success, you’ll be pleased to learn that there are a few simple rules which can greatly help improve your chances.First of all you have to know when to hold. Always hold a royal flush, straight flush, four of a kind, full house, three of a kind, or two pair. If you are dealt three of a kind, hold the three and discard the remaining two cards, this gives you the chance to develop four of a kind or a full house. If you’re a dealt two pair, discard the fifth card for the chance of a full house.
It is only a good idea to break up a flush or a straight if you have four cards to a royal flush. For example, if you’re holding ace-king-queen-jack-9, all clubs, then discard the 9 to take a chance at the big payoff if you’re deal the 10 of clubs.
It still leaves the chance for a flush with any other club, a straight with any other 10, a pair of jacks or better with any ace, king, queen or jack.
These are just a few basic tips, there are many more strategies to learn, so don’t give up and keep studying the game.
