Let it Ride poker is a new and increasingly more popular casino game. Let It Ride is based on the classic five card stud. The object is to get a pair of 10s or better using three cards dealt to the player and two "community" cards dealt to the dealer. In this game, as in Blackjack, everyone plays against the casino. Players ante up three equal wagers and are dealt three cards open face. If you think you have the makings of a winning hand, you have the option of leaving all three of your wagers on the table. However, if you are dealt a "weak" hand, you can take back your first bet. The dealer then shows the first of two community cards which apply to all hands on the table. You then have the option of taking back your second bet or "letting it ride." The third bet remains. The dealer then shows the second community card. Winners are paid based on hands which have a pair of 10s or better with a pair of 10s paying even money.
The player on his remaining bets according to the following schedule:
|Pair of 10s or better||even money|
|Three of a kind||3:1|
|Four of a Kind||50:1|
Being able to have up to two of the three bets returned by the dealer is logically equivalent to starting with one bet and being allowed to put out up to two more.
The best strategy for this game is as follows. On the first three
cards, take back a bet unless one holds:
--a pair of 10s or better, or three of a kind; or --three cards to a straight flush, provided: --contiguous and 543 or higher, or --one "hole" and at least one card is 10 or higher, or --two "holes" and at least two cards are 10 or higher.
On the fourth card, take back a bet unless one has:
--a pair of 10s or better, two pair, or three or four of a kind; or --a four-flush; or --an open-ended straight including a 10 or higher. The following bets are optional, i.e., expected return = 1.000... --an open-ended straight not including a 10 or higher; or --all cards 10 or higher (an inside A-to-10 straight).
