Make Your Own Video Poker Strategy Tables

26 August 1999

To sharpen video poker skills, you can't beat practice on the computer.

Any good software will warn you when you make a mistake and show you the proper plays. Hear the beep often enough when you try to hold a four-card straight instead of a low pair, and it'll sink in that the low pair is a better play in most games.

What most video poker programs miss, though, is the capability to display a strategy table for any given game. Practice is largely trial and error - you'll be warned as you make a mistake, and you can even have each hand analyzed to show you the expected value of every possible draw, but there's no strategy table to follow as you play.

That's where TomSki's Video Poker Strategy Master comes in. It fills that gap and allows you to use other software more effectively.

Strategy Master is not designed to be used as a game or to practice your skills. It just does one important thing - it generates strategy tables for any video poker pay table. Want to know how strategy for 9-6 Double Bonus Poker differs from that for 10-7 Double Bonus? Type in the pay table for 9-6 Double Bonus, then click on either basic strategy or advanced strategy. Strategy Master generates a strategy table specific to your game. Print it out, then refer to it when you practice with one of the good video poker simulations such as Bob Dancer Presents WinPoker or Panamint's Video Poker Tutor.

Strategy Master is available for $29.95 if you take delivery by e-mail or $32.95 if you request a disc to be sent in the mail. Call (888) 203-9363 or go to TomSki's Web site, zamzone.com.
