Traditional California player-dealt rules are these: After the initial deal, dealer places a chip on the stub and leaves it on the table before picking up his own cards (of course with a house dealer this doesn't apply). After the first round of betting, each player, in turn, beginning from the dealer's left, declares how many cards he intends to draw. A ...


I generally will fold unless there is no bet to call. Investing in a bad hand generally gets you a negative return. If there is no bet to call in the big blind or it's an ante game, I would hold the highest ranks in the following: suited with a high card A♣5♣ before K♥ 6♥ suited connectors 7⋄ 6⋄ before ...


I like just calling here. You already have position on the raiser, and can narrow him down pretty well. I don't see much benefit in trying to chase out those behind you. The tougher decision is whether to call if he bets after the draw and you don't improve. Raising only makes that later decision more difficult. Glad to know somebody in the world still ...

As you can see, in the classic game there are 30 cards dealt pre-flop and another 18 ...


I have been playing FL! 5 card draw for about 2-3 months. For FL, I would generally keep Ace or King. I was profitable at 0.2-0.5 level at that time, which was the highest level with more then 2 tables open at that time. (And propably also now...) In NL, I think just throwing away these cards can't be a big mistake, but I have no experience from that.
