The strategy below is more than 99.9985% accurate; meaning the cost due to errors is 0.0015%. To use the strategy, look up all viable ways to play the hand, and go with the one listed first. If a play is not listed, that means there is always a better alternative, and it should never be played. For example, if the player has 2 J Q Q A there are three viable plays: the high pair, three to a royal, or four to a flush. Playing a four to a flush depends on the number of high cards. A four to a flush with three cards is not listed (because three to a royal is always better), and thus should never be played. Between three to a royal and a high pair, the high pair is listed first, and thus is the better play.
