Oh well, at least if Dealer did Toss (4 7), it won't be a long, drawn-out game . . .

Have to play for the picture card cut here-obviously you don’t like giving 2 points away on the discard when dealer is only 30 away but it has to be done here-obviously not the cut we were looking for

For some reason not all the cards are showing up on the site today on my end.. Tossing 4-4 as we are far behind. Starting with 10 points a possibility of 21 points with this hand.

Too far behind to throw away points at this position. Rather lose being aggressive here.

I tried to blank the dealer's crib with the Q-4. The 4-5-5-J still kept the hand viable for an X cut. At least my lead of the 4 should be relatively safe.

Gambling on the 16/46 chance of either an X or 5. Didn't work out this time.

5 Spades lead.

Ace thru seven vs five / face cards. I pick the latter. Queen lead hope they have some crummy four hand. dec

We're running out of runway. This improves on nearly 3 in 4 cuts to at least 8 points anyway, while 5-5-J-Q is only worth 8-9 points on about 2/3 of cuts. I'd go for the big cut!

Plus if our luck continues to fail and we find ourselves fighting a skunk we want to play defensively anyway and J-Q is a lot safer than 4-4.

I'm for holding 10 points(with large upside) and discarding 4-4. Hope Dealer has poor hand.

10 points in hand. Many cuts for 16-20. Better odds than hoping for one of 4 sixes. Bad cut. How far away is that line?

No time to play defense down 16 points with dealer on 4th Street. Many cuts will give us 16-20 points and would put us past hole 90 with the upcoming. Have to be willing to take risks when in this position. Sol it's goodbye 4-4! After that lousy cut will lead the QS and take any pegs offered.
