This card room has several table games in addition to poker and race book. The UTH only pays 200-1 for Royal Flush and even money for flush on the blind, the house edge is about twice the normal pay table at 4.87% (estimate, not done by computer; please check for an exact house edge and post it.)

The Mississippi Stud game is the opposite, it pushes 2's-10's (instead of 6's-10's), trips pay 4-1, straights pay 5-1. The numbers are more complex and I'd need a computer to calculate the exact house edge, but I suspect it's about 2.5% (please calculate the edge and post it.)

Push on any pair? Does that mean you never fold?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

When you play the MS game at Orange City or any other Florida Cardroom with Designated Player Games the player must beat the designated player hand to win — this is a requirement by law for these games. Specifically, at the MS game the designated player gets 2 hole cards same like the player gets — this is how the game is different from a regular casino MS game where your hand is just measured against a paytable for payout. To make up for part of the negativity that you have to beat the dealer to win versus the regular casino game, IF YOU BEAT THE DEALER, you push on a pair of 2s thru a pair of 10s whereas the regular casino MS game you push on a pair of 6s thru a pair of 10s. The house edges on most all of these Florida games is much higher than the house edges at these games at regular casinos.

Hopefully Terps sees this, I believe he plays at some of these rooms. Although maybe just Poker.

I don't play these games
I do play poker at Derby Lane in St Pete
Very thrilled they just brought back the low roller No limit holdem cash 1-1 game. Min buy in 40, max buy in 80.
Still qualify for high hand jackpots
but
10 to 19 in the pot, just 1/2 the jackpot
20 or more in the pot, get full jackpot
