Face up Poker (Posted on 2007-06-04) Difficulty: 3 of 5
This is a bar bet. You bet another player "You cannot beat me at Poker even if we pick our hands out of a faceup deck, and you pick first."

The rules:
* First, a player picks five cards from the face up deck.
* Then, the other player picks five of the remaining cards.
* Suits are all ranked the same
* There is one draw phase where either player may get new cards.

QUESTION 1: How can you win your bet if the other player goes first, and picks a Royal Flush (10-J-Q-K-A of the same suit) as most people would?

QUESTION 2: How can you win your bet if you go first?

Some Thoughts Can you do better than tie? | Comment 2 of 8 |

The previous post seems correct.

I'm just thinking of whether the person who goes fist actually can get a better hand.  I don't think it is possible to do so.

Strategy:  Person 1 picks AAAAK thinking they can get the royal flush in the draw.

Person 2 counters KKKQQ (One queen in the same suit as person 1's king.)

Person 1 cannot get the royal flush and can't keep person 2 from getting a king high straight flush while still geting a straight flush.
