Wiz,

Does your strategy for Mississippi Stud take into account that other players at the table might be holding cards that you need ?

Ex.....I'm dealt pair of deuces..strategy says to bet 3x..However two other players at the table are each holding a deuce..

Thanks

At 16:50 you explain that the player should expect to lose $4.91 for every $100 wagered, and then say that should not be confused with the house edge, while the accompanying text says that the house edge is 4.91%. As a long time follower of WoO I knew where you were going, but the transition to the concept of element of risk needs to be clearer, misstatement notwithstanding.



You're right, the 4.91% is the house edge. I blew it there. Once a video is "published" it can't be changed and I've taken to task for three different Ultimate videos. I left a correction in the description of the video.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

No. Go to Discount Gambling if you want that strategy.
