What Is Crown Roulette?
Crown Roulette is a combination of two WSOP event game modes. Texas Roulette and Crown Hold ‘em.
In Crown Roulette, you play mostly with Broadway cards. These are the cards needed to make the best straight possible.
You also can play with the nine card. So you play with the cards 9, T, J, Q, K, and A.
You can only call or fold preflop. You also can only fold or go all-in on the flop. This is a game mode of very simple decisions.
Crown Roulette Preflop Guide
I play most hands preflop. I tend to be pickier on the blinds as I don’t like playing out of position postflop.
I also tend to avoid playing hands with a nine in them. Those hands are going to be weaker postflop most of the time.
I do call these hands on the button, though.
Crown Roulette Postflop Strategy
The following hands are what you want to play in Crown Roulette. Stick to these hands and you will win as often as possible.
I organized the hands from the weakest to the strongest hands.
Pairs are losing hands. Don't ever go all-in with anything but two pair or stronger.
With so few cards in the deck, the odds of making a flush are somewhat better. But this still is a very weak hand.
Going all-in on the flop with a straight flush draw is going to be a losing play long-term. The times you make it will not cover the times you lose.
If another player has one of the cards you need to make a straight flush, you will never make it.
There are some situations where I might go all-in with a flush draw.
I will call if somebody with a pitifully small stack goes all-in and this a heads up game.
For example, somebody goes all-in for 12 blinds. I might call to see if I make it for the fun of it at that point.
Straights are a losing hand in Crown Roulette.
Pairs and three of a kind will improve to a full house a good amount of the time. A straight will never get better.
Sometimes you might win anyway. But the odds are not worth it long-term.
Two pair is always a more speculative hand. I sometimes go all-in with this hand, but I try to avoid it.
Trips tend to be a good hand to go all with. I am still somewhat more cautious with this hand, though.
You might think that a set is the same as trips. They are both three of a kind hands, right?
A set is going to be stronger than trips most of the time. This is why I go all-in with almost every set I make in Crown Roulette.
This is the confusing hand. Since there is the nine card, it is possible to make a plain flush.
I am uncertain about this hand. I think it is a fold still because if the board pairs, you probably lose to a full house.
A Full House
If you have a made hand, you need to go all-in!
There will be cases when somebody will call and beat you. But you want to go all-in when you may have the best hand.
Anything Stronger Than a Full House
Of course, go all-in if you have four of a kind or a straight flush!
