Post by Player422738 »

I didn't pay attention to the police car when I was driving to the casino and I got pulled over by a cop for speeding. No ticket but just a warning. ;)

I have been playing a $5 machine with my free play recently. Never thought I could hit this hand with such a limited budget!

I started with the crappy 9/5 TDB. I threw the pair of Qs and went for royal. The first card got a 10 on the draw and I didn't pay attention to the last card, normally I ended with 4 to Royal as a losing hand. But this time, I got a "call attendant"! :D

Thanks to that cop for changing my timing and reminding me of driving safe as well! :)

Not pure luck for sure. Playing correctly is also important. ;)

Congratulations. I would have kept the Queens. Amazing.

In TDB you always go for the royal discarding high pair other than AA, except if the hand contains AHT, e.g. AQTQ5 (holding QQ is better play in this hand).

And FL4 containing AHT is better than SF3 AHT.

In 9/7 version, you get less royal flush since FL4 is always better than RF3.

In 9/5, holding high pair should be better than holding RF3. But 99.99% of time I play 9/6 or 9/7, when I am on 9/5 version, I never play 9/5 strategy.

Nice royal hop, I am hopeful that $100.00 of your winnings will be donated to your local police departments vest fund? Or something similar?

When using the trainer here, I sometimes get an error holding "FL4" over "RF3". Not certain, but I think only on KQJ suited with certain low card and not all the time certainly...
