Video Poker Strategy Cards by
Starting in 1997, Skip Hughes produced some of the most popular cards
used by video poker players. One of the fans of the cards was
Jean Scott. Jean once told Skip,
"Your cards are in the player's pocket, not in their dresser drawer, like
some other cards."
The Skip Hughes Cards were discontinued in 2000, due to other business
priorities. Ever since that time, fans of these strategy cards have been
asking when they would return. That question is now answered with the
release of Frugal Strategy Cards by Skip Hughes. In cooperation with Jean
Scott and Jim Wolf, the creator of Frugal
Video Poker, Skip has created the most usable video poker strategy cards
available. These cards are not designed for the professional player
(although they would serve them well), but for recreational players who
want to win and get the most out of their video poker play.
Of all the strategy cards on the market, Frugal Strategy Cards are the
easiest to read, easiest to learn and easiest to use. Due to the
breakthroughs in video poker software made by Frugal Video Poker, it's now
possible to streamline and simplify complex strategies with no significant
loss of return. What's more, the exact return has been determined for these
strategies - not just for the specific game the card is designed for, but
for other games as well.

10/7 Double Bonus
The Double Bonus card has an Expected Return of 100.17% for 10/7/50 and
100.51% for 10/7/80. The entire strategy is contained in two columns on the
front side of the card. The 10/7 strategy is not easily adaptable to other
Kings or Better Joker Poker
The KBJW card has an Expected Return of 100.63%. This is the only card that
uses both sides of the card for the strategy. One side has the hands with a
Joker and the other side has the hands without a Joker.
The PE card is unique. The front side of the card has a traditional strategy
table with all hands covered, line by line. The reverse side has an unusual
"Logical Strategy" inspired by the VP writer, Scott Katz. This logical
strategy has eleven lines and two rules. Yet it produces the same return as
the 25 line strategy on the front. Once the two rules have been
learned, Pick'em is a snap!
