In response to the many requests for a single game video poker challenge I got together with the amazing Ken today at the Santa Fe Station. This time I think you'll be happier with the final video. However, for now, can I please get a volunteer to help me check the close up footage for accuracy. Ken remarked afterward he thinks he made at least one error. Below is the video.



Thank you!

The question for the poll is what do you think?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I didn't watch it all. You would let us know if there was a natural RF in there, right ?

Same here. I slowed it down to 0.75.

If there's a mistake, it must be a small one. His play looked perfect to me.

Interesting hands:

At 4:35, he was dealt four to a royal with a deuce. He played it correctly, but I think most gamblers would toss the deuce.

At 1:10, he held one of two pair and connected on the natural quad.

At 2:50 was another one of those tossup hands where you could correctly hold for either the inside straight or straight flush.

At 6:58 was an example of an inside straight draw outranking QTs.

I counted about 50 in 2 minutes, so very roughly 1500. But the machine was not perfectly fast. I think he could have done better on a faster machine.

I've checked the first 100 hands, which took 3:58 to play. That translates to 1512 HPH.

Couple tricky penalty card situations in there, both of which he got right:

Hand 37: 10d, Ad, Jc, 6h, 2
Hand 40: 5h, 7d, 10d, Jd, Ac
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I just got home from playing 4800 hands of 5Play bonus. Started at 5:45 and ended shortly before 10. I thought that was fast.

Hello forum. I'm Ken, and I took the poll and selected 10 minutes doesn't mean jack!!

If there ever is a record set then I anticipate mine being shattered and a new record set or possibly set many times over. After that I hope to have an opportunity to consider training specifically to break the record. The record should settle on someone who receives many lucky hands in the 10 minute window, such as toss all 5 cards in Deuces Wild.

If someone would like action on whether this could be kept up for a full hour then I would like to bet on that. And maybe a 12 or 24 hour challenge as well. Also, a 3 machine challenge.

Thanks to Mike the Wizard for his interest in this product. I have been wanting a video for awhile and I got 2!!!

I do have a fast machine in town in mind for a future gold medal attempt ;)

Ken
