Pick FiveVideo Poker
Pick 5 is a video poker game with a difference. Its played with a standard 52 card deck of cards from which 2 cards are dealt and the player selects one of those cards and the other card is discarded. This process is repeated another 4 times so the player finishes with his 5 card poker hand. It's not a commonly seen game even though it offers a payback of over 100%. Part of the reason for this is due to the game speed being a little slower than most due to the player having to make 5 card decisions.
I haven't seen this game offered online. In live casinos it can be found on some Williams Corporation multi-game machines.
Pick FiveVideo Poker Strategy
After a little research I found the following information on the strategy of playing this quite complex game. Doug Reul who was associate editor of Video Poker Times and also worked with well known video poker author Dan Paymar came up with the following:
"For your first card, select the first card in this list:
As usual, RF2 means "two cards to a royal flush," "h1" means "one high card (jack or higher)," and "i" means "inside draw (e.g. 5-7 or 2-4)."
The above strategy is not optimal but is enough to give a payback of over over 100%. It also doesn't take into account the seen but discarded cards.
