These horrible percentages are improved somewhat by the fact that the first three or four cards will occasionally show a clear winner, which allows the player to bet the maximum. Let Them Ride poker is somewhat like its poker cousin Texas Hold‘em. You don’t play every hand. The best Let Them Ride poker strategy is to wait and lose and lose and lose and lose…. And lose some more until the right hand comes along, and then you bet the most.

Just what is the right hand? Well, the first bet should ride in the following situations:

  • A pair of tens or better
  • Three consecutive cards to an open-ended straight flush
  • Three nearly consecutive cards to a straight flush with at least two high cards (Ex. 8,10, jack or 9, jack, queen)

Anything else is not worth riding the first bet. Bring it back. The criteria for the second bet is as follows:

  • A pair of tens or better
  • Four cards to a flush (including straight and royal flush)
  • A hand with a combined the, jack, queen, and king of any suit
Pull the second bet if the hand is made of anything less.
