A single deck was dealt down to the 14 card level
and all systems ire evaluated according to their simultaneous
diagnosis of the same hands, so the element of luck
was kept to a minimum. if the pre-deal count for a
system suggested an advantage, one unit was bet, otherwise
The systems are described in the table by their ten
point values, ace through ten from left to right.
This is folloid by the betting correlation, the Las
Vegas simulation yield in % of units gained per hand
played, the predicted yield (in parenthesis), the
Reno simulation yield, and again the predicted yield
using the methods of this section. Slightly altered
parameters are necessary to approximate the Reno games,
but these correlations are not presented since they
differ very little from those for Las Vegas.
are other times when drawing to a flush or a straight
can make sense:
Early in a tournament, when the bets tend to be small
in comparison to your stack and there are more players
seeing the flop. This is where you can make conventional
decisions based on pot odds.
When you are in a position to semi-bluff especially
against short-stacked players.
If you are heads-up against a short-stacked player
who has gone all-in and calling his bet won't significantly
hurt you. Over cards help you make this call. The
reasons are that losing won't change the strategic
situation, and short stacked players are under pressure
to bet with any pair or simply bluff after the flop.
