    Leaving in 2 days! I'd like to try to learn to play the correct way. Where can I go to practice? Is there a cheat sheet somewhere so I can learn quickly?

    If you have a tablet, or android phone, download the VideoPoker.com app. It's a free trainer for Jacks or Better, and it allows you to change the paytable. ALL FREE. For $5 it'll show you which cards to hold, but for FREE it'll tell you if your hold is right or not.
    Jacks or Better is pretty intuitive though...

    Tim, I always thought so too but I've seen a lot of people (usually a couple) that sits down and have never payed and they discuss what to hold. The majority of people will throw a low pair for 2 (suited or even off suit) face cards and go for 3 to a flush all the time. And as you know, that 2 pair payoff is a huge part of staying in the game.

    i've been playing the Bally gamemaker and IGT gameking JOB, with strategy, but i found JOB to be a money loser for me. even the four of a kind has pretty lame payout when you hit it. gave up on the thought of hitting a royal flush on the JOB a long time ago.
    good luck.

    There is a free JOB trainer app that will tell you when you made a strategy error. it will also give you the EV for each possible desision
