OK, this is going to be a bit arbitrary, playful, and at times silly, but over the next few weeks I thought I’d define a progression of the skill progression of an imaginary player.
Here’s a cool new game. It seems somehow fascinating. The players hide their “hole” cards from each other, and try to make the best 5 card hand from the combination of the cards in the middle with their hidden cards. Card rank, card rank… ok, looks like it is normal: A, K, Q, J, T, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Ummm, let’s google this… ok, best hands: royal flush, straight flush, 4 of a kind, full house, flush, straight, 3 of a kind, two pair, pair, high card. OK, I’m ready to go and crush-em!
