What, no one has ever held a stretch straight draw when playing super fast for hours?

Stretch straight draw = 5 7 8 10, 4 5 7 9 etc.

I'm sorry but you've opened yourself up to some attacks here. Your strategy makes me think of many things. I think about weakness and a wounded, tired gazelle near the water with the lionesses pouncing on the kill. Interestingly the Jackals are in the wings ready to poach or just be happy with a scavenger play. Honestly I'm not sure who is smarter but I like the Jackals method and style.

Next I think about when I'm playing with my wife and we're up 8k in 30 mins and she wants to quit. I tell her... we didn't come here to win 8k... we came here to work! Now stop yakking and push those buttons, if you have to yak, yak but play while you yikity yak in my ear.

I guess the point is that quitting just because something good happens will only hurt your hourly.

Also your gonna have some serious losing playing DDB compared to FPDW or even 16/10 Deuces. Buckle up Buttercup if your playing that wave of the future DDB.



I'm not an advantage player nor do I claim to be. I live in central California where most of the VP sucks. I have a very good day-job where I work from home and have no desire to become AP.

Nor do I recommend my strategy to anyone else. I am the stooge that makes advantage play possible! A ploppy. An addict. All of these.

My hourly is negative. And I freely admit it, and am okay with that.

Oh... for some reason I thought you were playing more serious. I thought it was you who broke down the 99.3 version of Jokers I play at the 5 dollar level. I got the message now though and will store it for future reference.

A friend of mine told me his friend accidentally threw away a dealt flush only to draw another flush in the same suit.

The worst thing I do playing VP is get distracted after drawing a hand for whatever reason, phone or drink or whatever, and forget I'm in the middle of a hand and throw it out when I start playing again.

I don't think I've ever thrown anything out that was too juicy at face value.

Ya, that seems to be the most common game to do it on. You probably would not make that mistake on a JOB where you don't go for inside straights anyways.

I also quit when I start throwing away good hands. Just shake my head and make a mental note on how much that misplay cost me. After about 2-3 hours of straight playing the mental errors start to come on.

Don't get me wrong, Monet. I do like going on big point multiplier days and play really good machines when I head up to Reno, but my bankroll and amount of time available doesn't allow me to chase slot jackpots or play long term. And I play video poker pretty ideally, not perfect, but I've done VP analysis on myself and came out very good in the games that I've played. So I don't have the opportunity to play advantage play as there are only 3 casinos within an hour drive from my house and all of them are California tribe casinos.

Don't know if it was the WORST play I've witnessed, but it was interesting nonetheless... I was playing Pai Gow and to the right of me was a gentleman who was betting $100/hand and after about an hour's play he picked up the perfect hand. Immediately he threw his head back and looked disgusted as though he couldn't believe his bad luck, shook his head in disbelief and played 8/8 face-up. I was told later that some folks believe that picking up that hand uses up all of their luck and that afterward they'll have none left. He ended up winning the hand but as soon as he got payed he picked up his chips and left the table in a huff.
