This keep might just give us a chance to reach that next par. Game is close here like to take advantage of having this deal. Just don't cut a low card here. Tough two point sacrafice at start but lookin potentially much better now. offense. dec

All black fake a Flush. Start with 2 points in the hand and 2 points in the crib with 6-9. Nice one Ras

Wasnít sure whether to throw 6-9 or Q-Q, but thought that there was more room for improvement with this hand.

Keep the four points and hope for better cards next time. Unlikely that Pone scores 17+ here.

A Meh hand. Question is 67 or 69? I'll keep the JQQ together just in case of a 10 or King Starter.

It stopped raining here in Northern Massachusetts ... for a while anyway ...

I like tossing 6-9 to myself because 6-X and 9-X are such common balks. It's definitely better than Q-Q, anyway. Defense to the cut (we start at +11/-8 and the cut is helpful).

Don't like 7J to the crib holding 2 Queens, especially when I can throw 69. Not a good hand but the type that comes up more often than you would like.

I like the open ended double run possibility, and out card... Small hand rule?

At 81*-78 playing a Defense strategy for the pegging the dynamic expected averages and Win/Loss %s are:

________________Pone's
Defense___Hand__Pegs___Crib_Total___W3 %____W4 %
9-J-Q-Q___4.52+(-2.33)+4.99=7.18____35.7____65.5
7-J-Q-Q___4.39+(-2.39)+5.14=7.14____34.6____66.6
6-9-Q-Q___5.04+(-1.98)+3.32=6.38____32.3____62.8
6-7-9-QS__3.87+(-2.22)+4.64=6.29____29.7____60.4

Defense______L3 %____L4 %
9-J-Q-Q______16.8____19.1
7-J-Q-Q______16.6____18.6
6-9-Q-Q______16.6____23.3
6-7-9-QS_____19.1____24.5

There's very little difference between 9-J-Q-Q and 7-J-Q-Q. Only 0.04pt in favor of 9-J-Q-Q for expected averages but equal for Win %s and slightly better for Loss %s for 7-J-Q-Q. As we're so close for expected averages I'll select 6-9 for the better Loss %s.

After the 5 cut I'll play Defense to the lead.

I think its better send QQ to our crib due to more cuts available and also better pegging play (we play 2nd and have plenty of options to peg 15-2 ,pair-2 and runs for 3 or more)
