Js's nice hits 'n stuff

Post by Jstark »

Since FAA kindly asked me to start a thread of my own, I'll start with today's nice hit. Dealt 22596 on the 25/16/13/4/3/2/2/1 version of DW and talking on the phone with a friend, I take a quick second to think about holding the 5 and 9 which were in diamonds since the SF here pays 65 credits. Then I remember you dont hold a 3 gapper but only a two or less gapper. So I hold the ducks and low and behold catch the other two of them on a sweet 3x multiplier.

You've got the right stuff!

In Vegas I rarely see the 16/13 schedule on UX, so I wouldn't know the strategy. I think we mostly have either 12/10 or 10/8. I don't know those strategies either.

WizardofOdds lists the 3 play at 96.9387% for this version. Strategy wise, I dont know the full intricacies of it and sometimes just wing it. If I really want to check, it would only take a minute or so to plug the hand into a hand calculator.

Seems reasonable. If you're like me, you never play those schedules in any context other than UX.

The one decision I try to get right is breaking up two pair. I believe it depends entirely on whether the full house pays 3 or 4. If the pay is 4, you absolutely must hold both pairs.

Yep. Every time I'm dealt 2 pair on DW doing this I check the pay table. There has to be at least 5 or 6 different tables on the UX games here. None of them playable under normal circumstances either.

Unless you have many plays at the $1 and higher denomination, I'd say all you need is $100 to start and build it into hundreds of thousands. It'll take a bit of time though.

Seriously though, why people leave these big advantages around has me dumbfounded. :wacko:
