This is another popular poker base game, unlike some other games that talked about.

This is a game where the player wins, based only on his own cards there’s no dealer hand. The game starts out where the player makes an ante wager. The deal is going to give the player two cards and three community cards face down when, after the player sees as a first two cards, he may either make a raise bet a pic one to three times as anti that or he may fall after. This decision has been made. The deal was gon na turn over the first three community cards. Again, the player can either raise one to three times as ante that or you can fold than that it was gon na turn over the second community card.

Yet again, the player can raise one to three times and he that or he may fall. Finally, the deal is going to turn over the fifth community card and pay the player according to the poker value of his hand, according to a post up a table on the table. That’S all there is to it. There’S some no side bets to the game and the strategy is not too complicated. Next, let’s talk about the strategy from mississippi Stud.

There is a different strategy for all three decision points and I’m only gon na talk about the first decision point, because the second to our little bit too long and technical to explain in this video after the player sees his first two cards and before any community Cards are turned over. The player should make the big raise three times and tibet with any pair. The player should make the small raise equal to his auntie wager.

If the player has any hi karte very high card is defined as a jacker higher. The player should make the small raise want equal to his auntie bet if the player has to medium cards median card being defined as a six through eight ten, the player should finally make the small raise people to use anti that if he has a 65 suited, If the player doesn’t have any of those things, then he should fall. The good thing about mississippi Stud is the player. Has three chances to raise with good cards? The bad thing about it is: the player is forced to making a razor for decision, there’s no checking.

So sometimes if the player has a bad hand, but not a terrible and he’s mathematically speaking he’s making bad race bets because it’s at least better than folding so oftentimes the player gets kinda sucked into the game with mediocre hands and then ends up losing the experience. In this game, is you have a lot a las is that are offset by the occasional big win. Mathematically speaking assuming optimal strategy, the house and manage in mississippi Stud is 4.91 percent. The original anti wager that means that, for every dollar the player bets on the anti he can expect to lose 4.91 cents for the strategy.
