Talk:Dice poker in The Witcher
Just had a big win, wondering what others maximums might be. I usually only play to complete quest, bet the minimum, win once then leave. Played with King Foltest, except I saved beforehand and this time bet, and raised the maximum amount whenever I could. Through some *extreme*, (maybe dodgy?), luck we had two draws because we both rolled the same hands, so game went for four hands and the pot ended up at 7,200+. I guess I will buy that new sword to use for a few minutes...(this happened after about 3 tries by the way.)
The AI can most definitely see your hand[edit source]
For example, if you roll a full house of 3s and 1s while your opponent has two 4s, he will keep those and reroll his other dice. If you have 5s and 6s, though, he'll reroll the whole hand.18.104.22.168 14:31, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
- what part of the game ever gave you any impression other than that every roll is visible to both players? Yeti magi (talk) 07:23, September 30, 2012 (UTC)
Impact of wager[edit source]
I just tried using the default conservative strategy against a novice opponent (gardener in act ii) and I lost every single time I picked the high wager/raise everything, but as soon as I picked the lowest values (5 to start, no raise) I won like a piece of cake.

Time flow?[edit source]
Does the time during poker add to the in-game time or not? Gilrond 18:54, June 18, 2012 (UTC)
Found under 'Basics':[edit source]
"Note: Some characters require you to play extra rounds."
please confirm? i.e. is this actually particular of a specific opponent, or is it just a conclusion someone jumped to because of not always winning or losing two hands in a row? (and in any case, something noting an exception does not belong in 'Basics'.) Yeti magi (talk) 06:59, September 30, 2012 (UTC)
Betting Strategy[edit source]
It's not true that always betting the highest is always the best strategy when trying to bet the most possible.
The CPU will often re-raise you several times if their hand is significantly better than yours, but they seem less likely to re-raise you if you bet high on a hand that is only slightly better than yours.
If you instead bet low on a hand you think they may raise you once, you can reach a potentially overall higher amount by accepting the now-higher maximum.
If your hand is better, I always go max.
