    So girlfriend and I will be in Vegas shortly (staying at Vdara) and feel like we have the JoB strategy down. I've been checking out VPFree, and there's really nothing close that offers anything close to full-pay.

    We of course will be making some trips to places with full-pay video poker (I heard MSS downtown has a good VP bartop setup and we've never been!), but if we want to do some gambling close to the room..what variant should we learn to get the best paytable-for-our-buck?

    What are the easiest variants to learn when you know JoB pretty well?

    JoB leads into both Bonus Poker and Bonus Poker Deluxe quite well.

    Check vpfree2 for paytables of games at any casino. Don't expect to find much in that part of town. Most of the playable games will be JOB at high stakes, or maybe BP, which plays almost exactly like JOB. Sometimes you can find BP in a progressive, which improves the expected value when it's up.

    On the strip often 7/5 bp is better than jacks or better. jacks or better strategy works pretty well on bp

    Mss has full pay at the bar tops. Check up the sticky bar top thread for best bar tops.

    Absolutely! JoB is just a gateway drug!

    Thanks!, We'll make sure to take Bonus Poker and BPD into the mix! Wizard of Odds didn't seem to have a strategy listed, anyone got a link to a printable "cheat-sheet" strategy card for those tricky hands?
