MCU poker tip: Razz proposition bet

Try betting someone that if they shuffle a standard 52-card deck and deal out 7 cards, you’ll end up with a seven stud low (razz) hand ranking 9, 10 or jack for low. You must have precisely one of those three hands to win. If you have an eight, a seven, a six or a bicycle, you lose. If you have a queen or a king for low, you lose. If you have a pair or worse for low, you lose. You’ll get takers on this one, and you have the best of it! You’ll win just over half the time–50.6%.
