Discard Strategy

1. Three of a kind: Discard any card.

2. Pair: Discard singleton.

3. Three suited cards: Discard lowest card.    Exceptions: Discard the middle card with A54, A64, A53

4. Three singletons, three different suits: Discard lowest card. Exceptions: Discard the middle card w/A54,A64,A53,A52

5. Three singletons, two highest suited: Discard lowest card.

6. Three singletons, lowest two suited: Usually the best play will be to keep the highest two cards. However, sometimes if a straight flush is possible, then the player should keep the two suited cards. The following table shows those exceptions to keeping the high two cards. The two suited cards are shown in blue. If the cell for the high card is shown in red, the player should discard it. If the cell for the high card is shown in green, the player should keep it, and discard the lowest card. If two cells are shown in a black boxes, the player should keep the two cards in black boxes and discard middle card.

7.   Three singletons, highest and lowest suited: The higher the middle card is, the more likely the player is to keep it. The following table shows all such situations. The two suited cards are shown in blue cells. The possible cards in the middle are shown in red and green. A red cell means the player should discard the middle card, and go for the flush. A green cell means the player should keep the middle card, and discard the lowest card.
