    Been playing DDB STP at Cosmo this week and am not sure on a few holds.

    A pair between 5-10 or an Ace? What about two royal cards vs the pair?

    Also, J-k or nothing?

    Thank you

    Always the pair versus the a single Ace (or any single card for that matter).
    Always the pair versus two to the royal. (if you have 4 to the flush or 3 to a royal, it get a little more specific)
    Any high card (J-A)) over nothing.

    Those are just the ones you asked about about. WoO has a good hand analyzer that can help with

    Thank you.
    Sorry for the basic questions:

    If you are dealt three 2-4 with another low card you hold the kicker, right?

    Also, is it proper to hold the two pair when one is 2-4 and the other is 5-10? I assume yes, but not positive based on the high value of four 2-4.

    Thank you

    No problem and there are hands I still have problems with.

    With DDB, if you are dealt trip A-4 and a A-4 kicker, you would drop the kicker. If it was Triple Double Bonus, you would hold the kicker as 2-4 w kicker is worth 2000 and Aces with kicker is worth 4000 versus the 800 and 2000 in DDB

    The only time that I would split 2 pair is if one of the pairs are Aces.

    Thank you sir.
    Someone was doing a VP heavy report on a poker forum and I think it was TDB, which explains his comments to keep the kicker.


    I solemnly swear to study Wizard of odds before my next trip.
    JoB is way too boring with STP DDB now found.
    And the machine by the Mlife desk has been quite giving once again.

    I just did a VP heavy report here and it was almost all TDB with some DDB ... but all DSTP.

    DSTP is like crack (from what I am told)... it is addicting. I am with on JoB being very boring now.
