    Was dealt a full house last night and was wondering all night if I made the right play. Hold all 5 or hold the trips and chase quads?

    Agree, most games, hold a winner at that level (ie the FH), with some exceptions depending on the game and paytable

    I was a little foggy at that point but it was DDBP and I think 99977.

    You made the correct play. A couple exceptions that come to mind is if you had a full house with 3 aces in DDB, or with 3 As, 2s, 3s, or 4s in TDB.

    On multi-play, you always play the same strategy as you would on single-play. The major difference is that it is even more essential that you play (close to) perfect strategy as the number of hands per base deal increases.

    I disagree, it’s called gambling.
    If you’re ever going to take a gamble do it on the hands that grosx2 mentioned. Your will still get back 3x your bet even if you hit nothing.

    I say it matters more if you're betting more than normal when you play 100 play. If you're playing 100 play pennies, but $5 level single line, errors on the $5 single line game will be more costly.

    If everyone thought like that, we wouldn’t have any inventions and no one would have traveled the world. I can’t even imagine what life would be if we didn’t have explorers or inventors.
