Tough Pineapple Open Face Chinese Strategy Decision 


 If you have played Pineapple Open Face Chinese, you have been here before.  It's a tough decision that doesn't seem to have a clear answer.  The only way to really find out is to count outs and break down our options with some rudimentary math, but that is hard, time-consuming, and inaccurate.  Luckily, there is a much better way. We have created 3 amazing tools to speed up the learning curve and let you beat your competition.


1. Hand Input App - If you are taking screenshots or saving tough hands, you can input them on this app.


2. Tactics Trainer - After your submitted hand finishes the simulation process it will be here to review, alongside thousands of other user submitted open face hands.  In order to see the answers, you have to make your best guess.  After you submit your guess you will be able to see if you got it right or wrong, and by how much.


3. Rating System and Leader Boards - We will use your answer to calculate your rating. Compete amongst the community to be one of the highest rated players and stay on top of our Leader Boards.

For more information about our simulator, our process, or our team, please check out the FAQ, About Us, and the subscription FAQ at the bottom of our Pricing page.


As for that hand, there is a lot going on there.  We have to account for FantasyLand (we value it at 7.5) and count all of our flush outs and trips or 2-pair outs.  In the end there is one clear answer.

  Here is the solution:


6s Back, 7h Middle +.75


Kc Front, 6s Bottom -.03

Kc Front, 7h Middle -.62

We have a winner.

Yes, but if you have 1 more

Yes, but if you have 1 more live spade, you are suppose to go K Front 7 Middle!  Very fragile spot

mucked cards

Would be interesting to see the solution for different mucked cards / slightly different values for fl. or how much fl has to account in order to go with KK
