Check this out.

SHFL's Flush Rush versus Galaxy's High Card Flush and Galaxy's "Feel the Rush". Perhaps SHFL licensed Galaxy's patent?

I hope we see some more out of Stephen How, it's been a long time, I've always enjoyed DiscountGambling.net, and Stephen is quite a writer. I enjoy the blog details of many of his casino adventurers as much or more as I enjoy the analyses of games that he does.

I Stephen is quite a writer.

He is what I wanted my son to be. An Asian engineer / programmer / mathematician with good writing skills, and a gambler who retired early, doing little now. :-)))

Probably. You have to make a 4 card flush to win.

And unfortunately mission, his post explains why he hasn't added much. He's addicted to something else now. Blah.

Try it at home with one deck of cards and deal 7 cards, you will see it easily. No mathematician required.

Mississippi Stud is about 26.23% (10.18% push , 16.05% win).
At least the basic strategy is easy:
Fold before flop: 1 of each suit
Bet river: any 3 or more suited cards

Side note: I don't like the name of the game. The first search results are about Rush Limbaugh.

Here is my new page on Flush Rush. I get exactly the same number as Discount Gambling. However, I publish a strategy.

Please have a look. As always, I welcome comments, questions, and especially corrections.

It doesn't matter in how the game plays out, but the way it is currently written, it sounds like the player personally receives his 5th/6th and 7th cards instead of them being community cards as described in Discount Gambling.

I'm assuming they are really community cards since that makes this game a lot faster.

Neither DG nor I have actually seen the game yet, but I'm hoping to later this week. I can say the math report that Ballys game me says the player gets the 5th-7th cards "from the deck."

Mathematically speaking, it doesn't make any difference.
