There are set rules defining Basic Video Poker Strategy whether playing online or in a casino – much like the Basic Strategy for Blackjack,
*Jacks-or-Better Video Poker Strategy
*In any hand holding a Jack, unless the hand is already a winner! – 4 to an open-ended Straight, 4 to a Flush or 3 to a Straight Flush or Royal Flush – reject all cards only keeping the Jack
*In any hand holding only 1 card Jack or above, keep the single high card and reject all other cards and redraw.
*In any hand holding 1 pair lower than Jacks, keep the pair and reject all other cards – unless the hand is 4 to a Straight or 4 to a Flush
*In any hand holding a 2-pair, keep both pair and reject the odd-card.
*In any hand holding 3-of-a-kind keep the 3-of-a-kind and reject the other 2 cards.
