The Trips paytable on the layout is wrong for any iteration of a game seen in a casino.

The "WIN" box does not add if there was a payout on the blind (straight or higher).

WOO, why do U feel the need to compete against discountgambling.net? It has a practice module too. Do U agree with his play strategy?



I didn't know he had one. Even if I did, it isn't that I'm competing with him, I just want to do my own version. I'm sure his strategy is fine, but I haven't analyzed it.

You're right. Thanks, good catch.

It does for me. Can anybody else corroborate the above?

Works fine for me too.
I was almost busted, playing crazy, and hit 6 blind bet winners of straights or better. The last 3 were full houses.
The win box on my computer showed the correct amount each time.

Nice game! I like your on-the-fly calculations for best decision, someone asked me for that feature, but I wasn't going to put it in my Flash game.

I think the more info/options for the players the better! There's no competition here; I don't care about anything other than vanity hits for my site :) I *do* care about players *not* giving any EV back to the house.

It'd be good to show the player the actual dollar cost of the wrong decision(s), like I did in my recent Mississippi Stud calculator. This might be the only way to get people to bet their hands (they check way too much at the tables).

Thanks for the links to my site over the years!

much better now!

however, there could be a glitch in advice? for the shown situation, I get scolded for trying to raise:





sorry for the tiny pics. The situation is, I have a pair of 4s, one of the 4s is in my hole cards. Shouldnt I raise?

#@%$#@ can't get a bigger pic. Umm, out of time, if you know how to enlarge the whole screen you can see them better. [hit control/+]

Thanks for the game with the advice. I played yesterday and only noticed the abundance of 2 of clubs but you have now fixed that. If the casino could only make that mistake once in a while.

You don't raise bottom pairs against scary boards, like straight or flush draws.

I don't think Stephen caught the straight problem in his strategy (he knows about not raising against flush draws), but I've noticed it from playing too many practice rounds with the calculator on. I plugged your hand into the wiz's calculator, and it confirms you should check. It's borderline, -0.584 vs -0.574.
