- Don't draw to complete straight unless you have a one-card draw to a straight that is open at both ends.
- Don't hold three cards of the same suit hoping to make a flush. The odds are mighty against you.
- Don't hold three consecutive cards hoping to make a straight. The odds are that you won't much like the pervious video poker tip. An exception to this is when you have three consecutive suited cards. Then the potential payoff is well worth the risk.
- Don't play two-card connectors. This means keeping a Jack and a Queen, or an 8 and a 9 just because they're consecutive numbers. It's won't improve your chances of making a good hand.
- Don't hold more than two high cards when there are no other trends in your hand.
