re: Poker & Can somebody explain RAZZ to me
Razz is like a easiest game to play in my opinion.
you have to get the lowest hand possible which is 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. flushes and straight do not count in this game. you do not want to get pairs. the main thing above everything is that you need 5 different low cards. FOR EXAMPLE. you could have 1, 2, 3, 4, J but that is a crappy hand. the other guy could beat you with 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 because your last card is higher than his. a way to figure out if your going to beat the other guy or not with lower cards is to see it like this.
( ) parenthesis means your cards are hidden
PLAYER #1 ------- (Ace) (3) 6 9 4
PLAYER #2 ------- (???)(???) 5 10 K
PLAYER #3 ------- (???)(???) 4 5 6
PLAYER #4 ------- (???)(???) Q 2 J
Now you are player #1, Ask yourself which person has the best chance of having the lowest hand???? The correct answer is Player #1 and Player #3 If you look at it, two of the three cards revealed will be used to make the low hand everytime so just remember that and look at yours and theres and you'll know if you even have a chance.
