I MISSED SOMETHING TO BEGIN...WHAT IS A PENALTY CARD
It's a card that might help you, but that you're supposed to discard anyway. Say, for example, that you have KdQdJd9h2s. You should keep the suited KQJ, and discard the 9 and 2. The 9 could help you make a straight if you drew a 10, and throwing it away makes it slightly less likely that you'll fill in a straight on the draw. But, discarding the 9 and going for a straight-flush, flush, or straight with an Ace and 10 or 10 and one of the other 9s is the best play.
Hi, Elna, I had an aunt named Elna, it is kind of an unusual name I think. Or is it making a comeback?
Since you are new, you might as well know you will be better received here if you join us in the Forum instead of using your blog to ask questions. Also, you should never use all-caps as that is considered "shouting" in internet etiquette. Congratulations on graduating from Keno [and slots?] into something better and good luck!
Thanks ..I need all the help I can get....Keno I loved ..I have never played poker before though...and have to watch in the casino's .It confused me...and I tried reading some books...but it was overwelming with the different ways and then I accidently came across this site...I knew that this was really some facts here and not just random information....but I also know I need to start very simple so I dont get confused, and I have never texted or bloged before either...So I will print and incorporate your advice in poker stragedy...thanks again.
