If I have another card ... would it be more profitable to

1) have a different worker mining at the same pool?
OR
2) have a different worker mining at a different pool?
OR
3) (I'm guessing this is possible) have the same worker mining at the same pool?

They would all be just as profitable, I would recommend you have them both work in the same pool.

Can you have one worker that uses two cards? Then do that.

I don't know, don't have 2 cards (yet); hence the "(I'm guessing this is possible)"

To get the most up time, I'd run 2 workers with different pools per card. This way if one pool goes down, the other is still up.

How would that work? Using Phoenix miner, I would have for example:
./phoenix.py -u http://worker_name:XXXX@useast.btcguild.com:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=0
and
<<edit>>
./phoenix.py -u http://worker_name:XXXX@bitcoinpool.com:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=0

Is that right?

no, you'd use different pools so something like this:

./phoenix.py -u http://worker_name:XXXX@useast.btcguild.com:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=0
./phoenix.py -u http://worker_name:XXXX@api.bitcoin.cz:8332/ -k poclbm DEVICE=0

notice same device name as well. This will put 50% of the hashrate on pool 1 and 50% on pool 2. If pool 1 goes down 100% goes to pool 2.

Thank you.

Yeah .. i was looking through my reply and re-read what you mentioned and corrected right before you reply.
Thank you very much for all your suggestions.

I would say use two workers at one pool. So you can keep track of stats for each card.
