Open Face Poker

A standard 52 card deck is laid out face up.

  1. Player A picks 5 cards.
  2. Player B picks 5 cards.
  3. Player A may discard up to 5 cards and pick that many new face up cards.
  4. Player B may do the same.
  5. Player with higher poker hand wins.

Would you rather be player A, or player B, or does it not matter?
