A conflict hand is a situation in video poker when a player does not really know what to do. It might be that his hand is completely useless or that they feel that they have two good hands and do not know which one to discard to try and improve on it. The problem with conflict hands in video poker is that it can be extremely hard to determine which is the best part of the hand to get rid of. This is hard because players do not really know what the next cards are going to be, which means that their hand could actually get alot worse, in comparison to much better. There are no real rules when it comes to dealing with conflict hands, but players can take a few precautions to ensure they make the best decision possible.

Players need to understand that there are alot of different conflict hands, so no hand is going to be the same. In order to better the hand, players will have to get rid of some of the lower ranking cards that are actually winners, in order to better their position. Losing winning cards is something that alot of people struggle to do, but it will allow a player to win much more in the long run. For example, dropping a pair to try and hit a royal flush.

Here is the real problem though; discarding higher combinations of cards and actually receiving lower combinations. This is where the conflict really happens as players have the possibility to win alot more, but they could actually lose out on cash in the process. Remember that discarding hands does not guarantee a better hand, but it certainly gives players a chance to do much better.

What would you do if you had 3c, 3h, 4h, 5h, 6h?

Well, this is actually a fairly good hand with plenty of opportunities. Players can drop the 3c to try and get a straight, a flush or a straight flush. That being said, they could keep the pair and go for three of a kind. That being said, without the extra three, the low pair of threes is not really worth much. Discarding the 3c is what most people would do.

What would you do if you had 3d, 4d, 5c, 6d, Kd?

This one is slightly trickier than the last one as the flip off is between a flush and a straight. Getting rid of the KD will allow players to try for a straight, but this is not the right option. Players should ditch the 5C and go for the flush instead. The odds of getting a flush are much higher that getting a straight, which is why this is the best option.

What would you do if you had 3S, 8H, 9H, 10H, JD?

The more possibilities to pick up a win, the more confused a player can get. For instance, by ditching the 3S and JD players will be able to try and achieve a straight flush. That being said, players could ditch just the 3S and try for a straight.

Conflict hands can become extremely confusing but what players need to do is determining the winnings that they possess and are therefore risking. From there they need to see what the potential is for winning extra. On top of this they should pick cards to be discarded based on the probability of what will come out next.
