Hello, Swope. It seems to me that almost every hand is based on luck. Still, in 5 card poker, you can keep some cards in your hand, while throwing others away. So depending on what you're first dealt, you have better or worse chances of achieving a certain hand. For example, if I was given four cards of the diamonds suit, I'd discard my none-diamond card and hope to get a Flush (five of the same suit). In short, they all seem to be based on luck, but there's definitely some strategy involved, too!
