I just saw Two for the Show on field trial at the Excalibur today. No, it is not a sequel to our own One for the Money. It is pretty much Three Card Poker, except based on the best two-card hand that can be made among six cards.

So far all I have for you are the rules, which you can see by clicking the link. I hope to have an analysis soon. With 190,694,571,947,880 combinations, it won't be trivial. A simulation may be in order.

The question for the survey is would you play Two for the Money, not knowing anything about the strategy or odds?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I can report the Two Pair Plus bet has a house edge of 6.73%.

Scientific Games was kind enough to share their math report for Two for the Show with me. I have just used the report to update my Two for the Show page with the proper strategy and analysis of the base game.

This sounds like a game boring enough where most players may need to play the higher edge sidebet to be entertained.
