3-card Hand Rankings

For the record, I’ve done the math (correctly–I think) for the various kinds of three card hands, and have come up with the result that a straight flush definitely beats three of a kind in three card poker.

As with any kind of poker, the harder it is to make a hand, the more the hand is worth. It turns out there are 48 ways to make a straight flush (12 possible straights, from {A,2,3} through {K,Q,A} in each of 4 suits equals 48 possible ways) and 52 possible ways to make three of a kind (for any given rank, there are 4 ways to make three of a kind–“without spades”, “without hearts”, “without diamonds”, and “without clubs”– and there are 13 ranks, so 52 possible ways).

Since it’s harder to make a straight flush, the straight flush wins.

For completeness sake, here’s what I worked out for the number of ways to make each kind of hand in 3-card:

# Hand
48 Straight flush
52 Three of a kind
720 Straight
1096 Flush
3744 Pair
16440 Ace High or Less

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
