No descriptions on these hands, no commentary from me. I'm just posting hands.

I think calling is better than going alone from this configuration. The work done by Eric zalas suggests that you're better off calling with a 9 or green 10 loser.

S4 also discarded incorrectly. Always discard you lowest card. No need to make life harder.

Nvm the discard was fine. Brainfart. The 9D is equivalent to the TC.

One of the coolest points was Hand #10 in game 8. Score was 8 to 7. LOL

That seriously was. I was your P and I was like oh man if he calls Next we are in trouble. Still not sure how we made that point. I hate that spot btw. Being up 8-7 S1-R2 after the dealer passes. So many decision points where it feels like you're dammed if you do and dammed if you dont.

I knew the Dealer was sitting on next. I said this is game time, I am calling Next anyway. I knew not to lead trump, only had one. I needed the one trump to trump any heart lead. If the opponents have hearts and strong next, leading would have been bad. But I had off suit. S2 trumping my Diamond lead (I thought I might be euchred). But working the off suits and going over the Dealer's small trump did the trick. Ha ha!

And then the bazaar hand 11. Had I passed, it was curtains for our side.

Then the real drama, I could have ordered but just two naked Jacks, WAIT ON NEXT and there it was. 9 to 9, you had to call.

I think had S2 assisted, they may have won that game 9 to 9.

So much drama in that game. And we were in the shuffler's algorithm and I knew that too. LOL, but the light from the Moon was shinning bright. Just another Moon story?

That S H I T is not real!

I probably would have played this hand the same way S4 did, although I would have discarded the 9D instead of the 10C. The reason for that is that my opponents are a bit more likely to have strength in diamonds than they are in clubs. In the end, it probably doesn't really make much difference though since that's still going to be your weak suit but I'd rather be weak in reverse-next on a lone dealer call.
