I love playing Rock Band guitar. Not with or against other people, but to improve my score. I think I'm pretty good for an old guy; I rank in the top 1,800 on the PS3 leaderboard.

I'm going to the casino this weekend that has the 3 card poker progressive over $23,000, so I have to bring this up again.

The AKQ of spades should occur once in 22,100 hands. I can expect to win $12,020 on the other progressive payouts (or $22,100 minus the break even target of $10,080). From the Wizard of Odds analysis of three card poker, the house edge on the 5-4-1 ante bonus table is 3.37%. So, the house edge take on 22,100 $10 ante bets would be $7,448, and my loss on the 22,100 $1 progressive bets would be $10,080. Perfect distribution of the results would indicate approx. $18,500 loss or bankroll requirement. What I don't know how to figure is the standard deviation. And are there different confidence levels based on plus or minus 1, 2, or 3 standard deviations?

Does anyone have a guess as to how many hands per hour might be played with 4 players at the table?

I played through the first 2 Guitar Heroes but haven't kept up since, although I'll play that or Rock Band at friends' parties if they have it up and running. They say it is nothing like playing a guitar, but I find that it actually helps out quite a bit with my alternate picking.

Can't help you with your 3 card questions, sorry.

Oops, sorry Nareed! The poll question is do you play Rock Band or Guitar Hero, or not.

But I really just wanted to bring up the three card poker question again.

Do you have to place an additional bet for the progressive? How does this work? Why do you have to have 4 players? Oh and by the way I love both Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Have you also tried Band Hero?
Come short with my cash and you'll be dancing like it's "Hammer Time"!

The progressive is a separate $1 bet. Don't have to have 4 players, I was just using that number as a potential team.

I have not tried Band Hero. What is it about?

It's just an offshoot of Guitar Hero. All instruments are compatible. It's got different types of music instead of just rock like Guitar Hero.
