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.
Thanks. Interesting. The calculator would seem to trump the webpage, which perhaps is simpler. Good to know the WoO Game is not just suffering a glitch.
I biggest error I know about is the strategy says to play any non-pocket pair against an off-suit board. Instead, you should check some low pairs against some straight draws. I have no idea about the details.
Stephen claims his is 2.2% vs 2.1% optimal, so I have been going by that.
where do you find that strategy?
Thanks. Looks like I'll be able to laminate it and use it too. Will take time to fully decipher that jargon/slang though!
I play this game a lot and am ahead on it, thanks mostly to a $900 straight flush I hit a year or two ago with $10 ante/$10 trips. (I never play that much anymore; only $5 antes, no trips).
It does for me. Can anybody else corroborate the above?
It seems to be working now.
