I am new to Mississippi Stud. I had read about the game on the Wizard of Odds website, but had never played it. I watched people playing it about a week ago... and noticd a lot of things.

1. People at ths table were making horrible decisions.
People were calling with 25 off suit. a 4 would flip. call again. 9 would flip. Then call again.... just praying for a 9 to push.
I saw a person call with 93 off. First card was an 8. Call. Next card was a 2. Then call again... Just to lose.

2. One winner takes care of A LOT of losses.

I read a post by 'Lhornbk70' where he stated that the limit spread was 5\$-10\$ ante.
The casinos that I play at offer a 5-25\$ spread limit for the ante. Must bet in 5\$ increments.

Now, I am not a fan of the Martingale System.. but lets examine

A Player starting with JJ, QQ, KK, AA is guaranteed at the least 10X the ante.
Players with 66, 77, 88, 99, 10-10 are guaranteed to break even at the least.

Remember, pair of JQKA starting equals 10X ante at the minimum for profit.

Like I see how this easily can get out of hand.. now i know each hand is independent event but ... we are looking at this from the start of the run.. not a person saying, "now that i have lost 'x' times... then I am positive that I MUST win this one"

What math would I need to do to test this?... or despite the 5X amount between minimum and maximum and being able to raise 3X ante.. there just isn't a system to come up a winner.

I'd like to do the math, but just don't know where to start.

It should also be noted that there will be more winners than just 1-1 Pairs. There will be 2 pair, 3 of a kind, Full House... 4 of a kind. Regular flushes (still going to play suited hands).
