Playing Prominence Poker – Second Place Finish – Playing Four-Of-A-Kind

My daughter and I have been making gaming videos and I thought I’d share this one with you. One of my favorite poker games on the Xbox is Prominence Poker. The price is free and it’s a play money site.

I go over play money strategy and give a little insight into reading hands. Two items of note:

  1. I show you how to play a four-of-a-kind in early position. The beauty here is that I was able to get some money out of my opponents without driving them away.
  2. I lost about 90% of my showdown even though I had the best hand and/or dominating hands. It’s important to build your stack to handle constantly doubling up opponents who get lucky.

This is one of my most famous articles. “Is Poker a Sin?” I answer the argument of whether Christians should be playing games that involve deception and what if you’re taking money from a fellow gambler who is betting their mortgage.
