Ultimate Poker

Students were asked to research the different combinations of all possible poker hands.

They were then instructed to discover the new combinations of the same hands if the deck included six suits instead of four, and an extra “bishop” card in each suit (valued higher than a 10 and lower than a Jack). They should also include the possibility of a new hand – five of a kind.

Using the inevitable increase in the number of combinations of hands (but not necessarily the probability of winning), they were then to create an advertisement for the new game, making it seem like players would have a better chance of winning simply because there were more ways of getting each hand.

The research and the videos were wonderful, and I promised I would post the best video. Here it is!
