In anticipation of our Las Vegas trip I have been fooling around with Video Poker simulations (specifically for Double Bonus and Double-Double Bonus-9/6 or 9/5 since I'm assuming that's mostly what I'll see on the strip...not good, I know, but not sure I can always hunt out optimal conditions...) I have the "optimal strategy" rules from wizard of odds printed, and I'm noticing some serious differences from the way I play "normally" and what they suggest is "optimal". For instance, for Double Bonus, I always dropped the lower pair if I made two pair with two Aces, hoping for the big pay on the 4OAK. I'm now seeing this is incorrect? Bottom line question for all serious VP players (which I certainly wish I was) is: Do you religiously follow the chart/VP Trainer suggestions, or do you deviate slightly hoping for a bigger score???
