    Riders just wondering playing 10 handed dollars have you ever held the 3 threes and not the kicker? And I'm not the equity police just curious if you have better luck keeping the kicker overall.

    It depends on the game. If I am playing DDB, then I never hold the kicker. However, if I am playing TDB (which is my preferred game these days), I will always hold the kicker if it is there. On DDB, the difference from 400 (without kicker) to 800 (with kicker) is much smaller and I just try to fill in the 4OAK with the 2 card draw. But with TDB, the difference from 400 to 2000 is much greater and better to keep the kicker. Does that make sense?

    That big hit made all of the difference in how this trip ended for you. So glad you got that one. Hoping for two next time!!

    It definitely smoothed out the variance when playing VP. I hope i get it earlier in the trip so I don't have to dig out of such a big hole, even if I would keep playing for something bigger. next trip it is a 6 figure handpay. :)

    Thanks.
