I am going to commit heresy. I’ve been deviating a little from JoB basic strategy. I’d like for y’all to judge my sin and tell me if I need to repent. There are two ways that my deviant streak comes out. First, if I am dealt 3ofaK off the bat, I’ve started saving one of the two remaining cards, trying to get the full house. I don’t know if this is actually statistically sound, but by my logic, it seems easier/more likely to hit the one card I need for the full house, rather than hit two of the same card. Anecdotally speaking, I seem to hit a few more full houses, but haven’t actually tracked it. Next, (and here’s the really bad one) I’ve noticed that a LOT of the time, when dealt a low pair initially, in the three cards I swap, there’s another card the same value as one of the cards I just swapped. Seeing that, I’ve started to save back one card in addition to the low pair. And I am absolutely hitting more 2Pairs that way. Now, admittedly it’s a bit of a crapshoot as I have no rhyme or reason in picking the third card. But to me, for my perceived increase in the 2 Pair, it seems worth it to use one of my cards that way, with two cards that are still random chances to provide a paying hand. I haven’t noticed a strong negative difference in my sessions. Or am I just throwing money away??
