Sometimes time can be your friend

The lighter side... playing for entertainment, less concerned about "the math."

I tossed the winning high pair. The math says in the long run, thats the way to go when you have 3 to the Royal dealt.

True. Full-pay Joker is more difficult for that scenario because usually you go for the royal, but occasionally it's correct to hold the high pair.

Your game pays 17 instead of 20 for quads, which I guess tilts strategy decisively in favor of the royal draw.

Speaking of time being on your side, I couldn’t resist posting this photo. I don’t know how good he is at playing video poker but he sure knows how to relax. The photo was taken a few days ago just a short distance from the family farm in Southwestern Virginia. From the looks of it he is at the edge of a local landfill.

With $800 in quality hits, I would hope so. I only had half that on Saturday, thus my slight loss after 2.5 roller coaster hours. Hey, a CET trip that didn't ruin my weekend.

The Mrs. and I are up at Mohegan sun for my birthday. Great dinner on the house stayed away from the gross lounge. We will see how it goes. Historically, every year going back as far as I can remember, I got a jackpot on my birthday but I’m not counting on it. Sometimes it’s a day on either side of it but no more than 12 hours apart.
