For simplicity, EV is the sum that a player can expect to win or lose if his movements and choices have to be repeated many times.

There are thirty two ways to hold any five-card hand that has been occupied. In each possession, the player must calculate the expected value of the results and then draw in the combination with the highest EV.

Calculating the EV is not so complicated. Calculating for the EV of a specific draw, a player must multiply the chance of each possible outcome by its value and the result will then be mounted.

For example, the busy hand is 8 clubs, 9 diamonds, 4 hearts and 8 husks; assume the player has chosen to play the jacks or the best video poker machine. The possession for this hand with the highest EV is 89 98. The deck has 47 cards remaining; 4 of which would make a full house with a disbursement of 8; the remaining 43 would make two pairs with a payout of 2.

A simple equation: EV = 4 x 8/47 + 43 x 2/47; hence EV = 2.51064 it is a very straightforward calculation but quite boring to most players. However, the game’s technology has turned out to be fast paced and player-friendly. There are programs and software that are designed to calculate the best strategy for each hand. The software can also give suggestions on how to increase the chance.
