A card which may well turn the best hand into trash. If you have Tc-8c and the flop comes Qd- Jd-9s, you almost assuredly have the best hand. However, a turn card of Td would be very scary because it would almost guarantee that you are now beaten.
Secondary Payoff
In many cases we are drawing with the hopes of making a particular big payoff, but much of the EV of the play comes from smaller payoffs when we miss the big one. For example, you might draw two cards to a Royal Flush but end up with a high pair, two pair, three-of-a-kind, a straight or a flush, all of which we would call secondary payoffs.
Sequential Royal Flush
A Royal Flush in order, either left-to-right or right-to-left like 10h-Jh-Qh-Kh-Ah. Some Video Poker Machines have a separate large Jackpot for one of these. You will get one of these once in about two and a half million hands, so most of us will never get one. Still, it's possible, and a lot more likely than winning the lottery.
Short Run
A limited amount of time when probability theory will be marked by streaks or fluctuations.
Short Stack
A number of chips that is not very many compared to the other players at the table. If you have $10 in front of you, and everybody else at the table has over $100, you are playing on a short stack.
Slow Play
To play a strong hand weakly so more players will stay in the pot.
When you win a hand that would put you over 1,000 credits, most video poker machines don't add to your credits. Instead they start spilling quarters into the hopper to pay off that hand.
Five cards not in the same suit in an unbroken sequence like 10h-Js-Qs-Kh-Ah.
Straight Flush
Five cards in the same suit in an unbroken sequence like 4h-5h-6h-7h-8h.
A pattern or method for playing the hands.
Strategy Card
A Strategy Card is a Strategy Table printed on a card. It's a good idea to have a strategy card with you while playing. You can buy strategy cards for most any available video poker game on the Internet.
Strategy Table
A Strategy Table is a list of the hands you might be dealt in decreasing order of Average Payback. If you can play a hand in two or more different ways, then you pick the highest in the strategy table - the one with the highest Average Payback.
In a poker deck, each card that is not a wild card is in one of the four suits: Clubs, Diamonds, Hearts or Spades.
