Full Coins Or Not

The previous chapter emphatically describes my feelings about full coin play ...I strongly favor it in any situation. It is especially important to play all five coins in video online poker games. The math easily points out the 2 to 3 percent advantage of the five-coin royal flush, but there's another factor that may weigh in even more strongly. Unlike most of the reel machines, where the primary jackpot is terribly remote and we don't consciously play for that big jackpot, we video online poker games players play for that royal! We know the odds are 40,000 hands between royals, but we also see enough three-card and four-card royals to entice us. We also want to take full, leveraged advantage of those "winning hands" described below.

We wait for many sessions, sometimes months, to see a royal. Given all this anticipation, you can imagine the devastation when you finally get that rare display and only played one or two coins! I've witnessed that on two occasions. In one case, a lady valiantly tried to convince herself that the $500 for her two-coin royal was better than nothing at all. Another case was a man playing a ten-coin machine ($10,000 royal) and hit with one coin-$250. He became physically ill and had to leave for the restroom. Why he played a ten-coin machine with one coin, I'll never know. Perhaps he had a "system."

I'm not sure that the problem with a short-coin royal is even the lost money. It's more the fact that we wait so long and so pointedly for the royal, we need to experience unrestricted "I beat it!" yell-and-scream exhilaration. Don't risk losing that.

The beauty of online poker games is that on the surface it is a game of utter simplicity, yet beneath the surface it is profound, rich, and full of subtlety. Because online poker games basic rules are so simple, anyone can learn online poker games in a few minutes, and novice players may even think they're pretty good after a few hours. From the expert's point of view, the veneer of simplicity that deludes so many players into thinking they're good is the profitable side of the online poker gamess beauty. It doesn't take long for pool players or golfers to realize they're outclassed and to demand that a match be handicapped, but losers in online poker games return to the table over and over again, donating their money and blaming their losses on bad luck, not bad play.
