Just dumb stuff all the time (MADE NO SENSE TO LEAD AGAIN). But S2 had a possible loner as well!

Bottom line, if your are going to play it alone, take it alone.

Are you showing us replays of the bots? I would sincerely hope none of our members would make this play. lol

These were ranked games as we did not have 4 players to set an OE table. If it had been a bot, I would have shown the bots name.

Bottom line. Your point is secure, give your partner a chance to pick up that losing trick.

Oh, that makes a lot more sense, I didn't think of that.

I wouldn't go alone with that hand at 0-0 with a 9 loser. According to Eric Zalas' data we need at least a green jack/Next 10 loser to get to a point where going alone beats out calling. But that data was from the dealer position. From the 2 spot calling performs even better as this is the situation our P is most likely to help us since he's guaranteed to have a trump and void (if he doesn't have a void he's got aces which helps just as well). Given the extra advantage a 2 seat call has I suspect that even a green Jack/Next 10 loser is actually not a loner, maybe even a queen loser is not a loner. I don't know. It hasn't been put to the test.

Yeah that's a bad pull of both bauers. Shoulda got two on that easy. Other wise playing like that might as well went alone.
