That looks pretty nice. I had seen that before but I didn't realize what it did. Is it complete? I don't see where it explains two high cards ie kj. I've been trying to learn in training mode on another site but some of the correct plays didn't seem right.

The strategy maker for triple double bonus doesn't show 2 high cards in the basic strategy but then shows two to a straight: JK listed as an exception. Maybe it is not complete.

Thanks, is this considered one of the more difficult games to remember? Is there a simple strategy anywhere?

It's certainly more difficult than Jacks or Better.

The strategy linked to is complete. You can manually consolidate it into a simpler strategy using whatever notation you're comfortable with. If you follow only the basic strategy (and ignore the exceptions) then you're playing a game that returns 99.5761% (with the full-pay 9/7 paytable). Throw in the exceptions and you'll gain another 0.0017%. You're on your own for identifying the conditions which make each exception apply.

Versus most games yes, this one is more difficult. And nope, no simple strategy made. For most players, it's just better to play 9/6 JoB. Any game where the flush payout is 7 for 1 or higher is more difficult. Is there is a 9/7 TDB in your area even?

I wouldn't touch anything lower than 9/7 either.
