    Not one of his better articles.

    Also, he most likely lost on his play to AC or else he would have boasted about his winnings, even if it were a small win.

    In simple terms, a card interferring with flush or straight possibilites, or both.


    Example, a 5 of clubs may be a penalty card solely because it is a "club", thus holding two to the royal for two "clubs" may not constitute the right play because one has a just a very small less chance of hitting a flush because one of the clubs has already been exposed/discarded.

    As the article stated, most penalty card situations do not cost and/or save the player much in the longterm, but giving the right play, it is best to obviously learn these to increase one's winnings over time.

    In poker terms, you're throwing away some of your outs. Got it. Thanks!
