But with that hand assuming he had no face cards- which if he did he would have held any face/ the only other possibility I saw would have been a gut shot straight which you would hold over three to the flush

If the flush pays 6 you start holding 3 flushes over zilch.



I'd be surprised if the paytable was 9/6 though, even at dollars. And if a person is playing one coin on one of those, very doubtful that they know correct strategy.

Yes I realize that. I was just saying that's when you should consider doing it on TDB. As i'm sure you know, once the flush hits 7 the strategy changes drastically towards flushes. And adding 5 to a straight changes up str8 holds. That's why playing 10/7/5 DB is a very difficult strategy to play perfect.

With all the new crazy VP games and bad pay tables I have to think VP percentage holds are way up. Unfortunately I have to believe the volume is way down. They certainly could offer better pay-tables. They are slowly killing off VP with bad pay tables.

It's funny, everyone's talking about the 3 card flush hold, when the point of this picture is a VP machine with a slot handle puller thing.

Multi-Game unit? Many machines in the WV parlors have VP/Keno/Slots, though I haven't seen any such with handles.

Regarding the hold, maybe the person thought he/she was on Deuces and then realized they tapped the wrong game, but I'm speculating. Aside from that, maybe the person still perceived it as a potential SF draw, even though it wasn't.

As already mentioned they used an old slot machine and converted it to VP.

Yes, I'm aware. Still funny [I think].
