Let it Ride
games was developed by Shuffle Master Inc., the
company that makes the automatic shuffling machines
that you see at online blackjack games, Caribbean
Stud, and Let it Ride tables. Like Caribbean Stud
games, Let it Ride games is an easy games to play
and features a large jackpot. The difference is
that players do not compete against the dealer as
they do in Caribbean Stud games, and that you have
the opportunity to take hack up to two-thirds of
rules are simple and easy to learn. Each player
is dealt three cards. There are also two "community"
cards which are common to all players. The five
cards make up each online poker games player's hand.
The objective is to end up with at least a pair
of tens or higher. If you do you will win, and the
payoff depends upon the ranking of the hand. The
higher the rank the greater the payoff-up to one
thousand to one for the royal flush-as is illustrated
by the following chart:

of a kind
want to hit the flop and hit it hard. Forty cards
are dealt to the players and most of the cards are
accounted for. It's very likely the flop hit someone,
and if that someone isn't you, then don't get involved.
But sometimes it can look like the flop hit you hard,
but it's not as strong as you might think after only
a superficial view. An example of a situation where
you're strong enough to bet but probably not strong
enough to get carried away with a lot of raising would
be if you limped in from the big blind with K? K?
Q? 5? and a flop of K? Q? 5?. With this dangling 5
and no Ace, this isn't a hand you'd usually want to
voluntarily put money in the pot to play, but sometimes
you just have to go with what you have.
How hard did that flop hit you? You do have top set,
with no possible straight, and only backdoor flush
and low draws. But look ahead to the next card. You
have one of the Queens and one of the 5s blocked.
And if any other card falls, it puts either a possible
straight on the board or a combination possible straight
and9.ow draw. Take a moment to look at that.
It's very likely you aren't going to like the next
card. By all means, bet the hand, you're best at the
moment. But if you: pet raised, don't get real carried
away until you see the turn.
