Advanced Strategies for Killing Oasis Poker

Oasis Poker is one of the more complicated types of casino poker out there. There are two main decision points in this game, and while one of them is pretty straight-forward, the other is extremely difficult to play well. Our goal here is to give you a way to play one decision perfectly while giving you strong advice on how to play the more complicated of the two decisions. Just remember that when you start playing this game, you may want to start with play money or lower stakes than you're used to until you get familiar with the decisions you're going to need to be making.

The first decision you have to make is whether or not you want to take a draw, and this requires paying a fee worth the same size as your ante for each card you want to draw to. You have the option to draw to one or two cards, but drawing to two cards is never the right play, so you should ignore that option completely. If you don't have a pair, then you should draw to four to a straight or four to an eight-out straight draw. This is the basic starting point for draws, and most players who are familiar with Oasis Poker know this.

However, there's a more advanced element as well. If you have four to a straight flush (including a royal flush), then you should always draw to it regardless of if you have a pair in your hand or not. Additionally, if you have four to a flush with a small pair, and at least two of your flush draw cards are higher than the dealer's up card and the pair you have, then you should break the pair and draw to the flush as well.

After you decide to draw or not, you are left with what essentially comes down to a Caribbean Stud Poker hand, and you should follow the correct strategy for that game here. In short, you'll always raise with any poker hand that's worth a pair or better, and you'll always fold if you have AQ-high or worse. The AK-high hands can be tricky, but you should base your decision on your opponent's up card and the other three cards left in your hand. This is an easy decision based on just four pieces of information, and it's hard to make a mistake.
