What Is Precision Play?

Precision Play is a computer-derived and player-proven technique for achieving the best win rate at certain video poker games. This is not the first file on video poker, and it obviously will not be the last, but it is the easiest to use without sacrificing expected win rate. For most players, Precision Play is optimum play. Before Precision Play there were only hand rank tables, such as "guidelines"or "tips" that were often harder to follow than the Precision Play rules even though they fell far short of achieving any game’s potential payback. Some files and cue cards offer simplified strategies that are very costly in terms of payback. In others, the path to success is to, memorize a table. Hand-rank tables work very well for many people - after they get some experience. But although Poker - The Player's Category you would be learning near-perfect strategy, your play might be slower, thus reducing your expected win rate even though you were making fewer errors in marginal decisions.

Most players would lose more than, that due to errors Poker - Get Omaha Tips when following a hand-rank table. You may wonder how I can claim that Precision Play will yield so close to a game’s theoretical maximum payback when it is simplified for ease of use by a beginner.

Precision Play vs. Expectancy Tables

To help clarify the advantages of poker online Precision Play, let’s suppose you are dealt (not necessarily in that order) on a full-pay (9/6) Jacks-or-Better with a flat 4,000-coin royal flush jackpot. You could hold all five cards, getting a payoff of 1.00 for the pair of jacks, but that’s obviously not the best play. 10 Should you hold the four-card straight, the three-card royal, or just the pair of jacks? Or would you hold the ace "kicker" with the jacks? Each of these possibilities has to be analyzed individually against the potential long-term paybacks to find out which play is the best. Table 2 tells us that the average EV of A-K-Q-J is .596, the suited K-Q-J (Royal Flush 3) is 1.401, and the pair of jacks is 1.537. (The tables give average EV because in any particular case the actual EV is affected by the discards.) Holding the ace kicker with the pair is not in the table because its EV is lower than for the pair alone at about 1.42. Note how holding a kicker costs you money.
