Serous about winning vs fun or entertaining, big differences. Which won are you? You cant go to a casino and take the game seriously if you arrive sharing a ride or expect to win on your initial buy in. If you're running good, dont quit. Usually that happens once a year, when it's your night its your night. If you're running bad, after multiple rebuys, then quit. Time is a critical variable that often goes overlooked when it comes to winning or losingg. Make sure you arrive and leave alone. Dont have somebody dictate when to leave. Leave on your own accord.

interesting. Sounds like uth has alot more variance than craps pass line/come bets with odds?

avg bet= 4x?
So for $10 ante,$10 blinds and$5 trips, it's considered $25x4=100?

how much would you bring when being$10 ante,$10 blinds,$5 trips ($25 total)?



No, that multiplication factor only applies to the base game. On a $10 table, you would get about $40/hand credit, then they would add the Trips on top of that.

I buy in for 200-300, but will expect to need about 500 to roll with the punches @ 10 Ante. A couple of times I've needed more.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

The best paytable I've seen in the last year is Harrah's Gulf Coast (Biloxi) with 9/7/4 (FH/FL/ST). I haven't looked at WoO to know which is the .9. Everywhere else I'm playing, it's either 8/7/4 or 8/6/5. I think 8/6/5 is at IP Biloxi fwiw. ( I don't care from one to the next - if I'm playing UTH, I'm playing Trips for the table minimum.)

Edit: ok, I looked. Harrah's Gulf Coast for the .9 paytable.

please respond to the messages I sent you on eBay.

yeah, I buy in for $500 Everytime at $10 ante,$5trips.
Down -$2500.

So $500 for a session isn't enough, apparently :(

100 X a bit excessive, yeah if you lose that no need for a rebuy. When I played limit poker, which was for decades, my rule of thumb was 25x the big bet. But for UTH, for a 10 & 10, my buy in will be 2 or 300 with no trip bets.

I still think if you play trips, that should be considered a separate buy in and your bets and winnings be tracked separately. Have two different stacks.

Why is the Common Progressive side bet at 5.7% house edge?
https://wizardofodds.com/games/ultimate-texas-hold-em/#toc-CommonProgressive

it pays way more than the Trips (1.9%) bet for all hands.

what am I missing?

I think you have to flop the hand to get the Common Progressive win. So before the turn or river cards.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

Yes, I can confirm that. 1st 5 cards only - both your cards + the flop.
