Introduction

Chase the Flush is a poker-based game with the goal of having a higher flush than the dealer. It follows a similar bet structure as Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em with the flush scoring of High Card Flush. I first noticed it at the Luxor in Las Vegas on August 11, 2016. It can also be found at the Fantasy Springs near Palm Springs. The game is marketed by AGS.

Strategy

Soccer analysis tips. So far nobody has tested any kind of quantifiable strategy to the best of my knowledge. Until that time, the following table of the probability of each player action may be of some help.

Player Action

RaiseProbability
323.84%
224.90%
135.17%
Fold16.09%
Total100.00%

I suggest the following vague strategy, which I admit has not been tested but is based on the table above.

  • At the first decision point raise with any three suited or Q-9 suited or better with two suited. If close to Q-9, consider the singleton, the higher in rank the better.
  • At the second decision point, raise with any three suited cards.
  • The third decision point is tough. 68.6% of the time you will raise at this point. If forced, I would raise with any three suited or two strong suited pairs.

Analysis

The following table shows the probability and contribution to the return of all possible outcomes of the Ante, All In, and X-Tra Bonus wagers, assuming optimal player strategy. It is organized from left to right according to the player's raise first, whether the dealer qualifies, the number of cards in the player's longest flush, the outcome against the dealer, the net win, number of combinations, probability, and contribution to the return.

Total398,664,610,344,0001.000000-0.023907

The bottom right corner shows that the ratio of the expected total loss to the Ante bet is 2.39%. Since the player must bet at least two units, I would define the house edge as the expected total units lost to the initial bet, which would 0.023907/2 = 1.20%.

For comparing one game to another, I like to use the Element of Risk, which is the ratio of the expected loss to the average amount bet. The average bet in Chase the Flush is 3.564878 units. Thus, the Element of Risk is 0.023907/3.564878 = 0.67%, which makes it a very competitive bet.

I would like to thank the game owner, AGS, for providing to me the math report by Stephen How of Discount Gambling. This saved me a lot of time analyzing the base game myself and I always trust Stephen's work. The analysis on the Same Suit bet I did myself and it agrees with How's report.
