Re: Another Myth I need clarified please

Sorry .............. ...but 300 of those points WERE nils. A 6 bid set? Was it card distribution? Peeps dont normally bid nil for no reason. Cut and paste Game Log . (send in email) My point is that we have all been in games when it FEELS like u have 4gotten HOW 2 play. Sometimes it never GETS to th...

Re: Another Myth I need clarified please

Ummmmmmmmmm.......... If your Opponents bid 4 nils out of 9 hands wouldnt it be logical to conclude YOU were 'getting the cards' ? Sheeeeeeesh ! What is the point of bidding 1 every hand and STILL lose the game ? Sometimes peeps TRY and make lemonade outta lemons, when u get nuttin you take risks. I...

Re: Another Myth I need clarified please

I Play........ .......mostly in a league (singular). One format I play a LOT is Singles which involves 2 human/ 2 botz. I cant begin to explain how 'Botz' can 'ruin' a game. What happens a LOT is 'a bot' will be 'spade tight' w/ 5 cards left to play........after bidding 2. Dont get me started on the...

Re: Another Myth I need clarified please

Yes.......... The Perception of the Individual is paramount to HOW they 'act'. I have been in HW about 10 yrs now. In the beginning I was arrogant and brash, thought that anytime I WON was because of my 'skill' and anytime I LOST it was just 'dumb luck' of opponents. But, with the RNG and the inevit...

Re: ASAP?

If its in a "public room", (Smoots, Gnomes, etc) I would have to assume they mean 'as soon as possible'. In a League? Hmmmmmm, maybe the 'sorry player' variety. There is Nothing Worse than have a Player JOIN a Tour and then leave after 1'st game/b4 Tour is OVER ! If you dont have the time dont sign ...

Re: bad cards bad dealers

From What.........

Jonas has explained about the RNG, you WILL get every possible hand. I think sometimes the 'bad hands' get clumped together resulting in the 'Infamous Hardwood Slump'.

Re: First hand play question

Your Pard....

May simply hold a singleton K. Play under and SEE if Pard leads out w/ another D. If not, it was the only D they had.

This will put 'you' in a position to lead D once you get the lead and hopefully P will throw off leaving their Spades to be used later in the hand to effect a set.

Re: Another Myth I need clarified please

Sadly........ anyone that is 'concerned' with Ratings ONLY is missing out on a Lot Of Fun. Ratings are, at best, an 'indicator', not a viable gauge of anyone's 'skill'. To 'excel' @ Spades one simply needs to remember cards played, recognize advantages when they occur and know what to do when it doe...

Was quite perturbing, none of my bidness, I didnt WANT to know ! For some reason, my objection was taken as a personal affront. I simply asked they take it 'pr...
