Heavenly PokerMade hands are hole cards that could win the pot without further improvement. Before the flop, A-A, K-K, and Q-Q are in this category. But they are all highly vulnerable. An opponent can catch a better hand, making your big pair a costly second-best. Let’s focus on pocket Queens.

Winning Strategies | Have you ever been tempted to throw away a Full House and go for the Four of a Kind? In a Jacks or Better machine this is essentially a suicidal move. The Full House is obviously worth the full 9 EV. The Trips is worth only 4.3.

Crazy for Keno | It seems many players think nothing about having all the numbers covered at a $5 or higher crap table but are reticent in playing more than $5 per game of keno; and some frown even on that much.
