Difficult Oasis Poker Drawing Scenarios Explained

The problem that a lot of players run into when they're trying to learn a game like Oasis Poker is that there's not really a lot of resources out there that will walk you through a hand step by step. Following video poker type strategies will lose a lot of money very quickly in the game, and there aren't really other casino poker games with drawing stages that match up too well with Oasis Poker. Here we're going to solve this by walking you through some difficult drawing scenarios in a simple, step-by-step format.

Suppose you have Jd8d7d4d4c. It's not hard to classify this hand as a flush draw, and flush draws are fine to go after in Oasis Poker, but the problem is that you'd be breaking up a pair to do it. In this situation, whether or not you discard the 4c and draw or whether you keep your pair together and do not draw is determined by the dealer's up card. If the dealer is showing a card that's five or higher, then you'll draw. If the dealer is showing a four or lower, then you'll keep your pair together.

On the other hand, consider what happens if you have AsQsJs8d7c. A lot of people, especially those who are familiar with video poker, are going to be particularly tempted into discarding the 8d and the 7c so that they have three cards to a royal flush. The problem with this play is that Oasis Poker requires you to pay a fee the size of the ante for each card that you discard. This means you're spending twice the ante here, and it's not worth it. Instead, you should just discard nothing and fold your hand since you have worse than AK-high. It's no big deal, so just move on to your next hand without worrying about it.

Generally speaking, you should always draw for open-ended straight draws and flush draws as long as you're not breaking up a pair. When you do have a flush draw, you should usually break up a pair as long as all four of your cards are higher than the card that your opponent shows, or if one of your five cards matches the card the dealer has up. This makes it harder for the dealer to catch pairs, and if he does, then it means his pairs are lower than yours when you both pick up one after your draw.
