The strategy below is more than 99.9935% accurate; meaning the cost due to errors is 0.0065%. 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: a high pair (of jacks), three to a royal (JQA), and four to a flush (with three high cards).
