I saw that you answered my question on the other thread. I do agree that in the scenario described here that South holding the queen was dumb, and also rather mean to the stopper. I would agree that in a situation like this where low is the one trying to moon that to dump on the stopper who is not l...

Is this cheating, unfair, unethical, or playing to win? 3rd or 4th appears to be mooning. Low is sitting on my right, and I'm holding the queen. I've had several chances to drop it on the player who appears to be mooning. I hold it back in the hopes that I'll be able to hit low with it if he takes a...

Had game like that this evening. On 2nd hand high called me a moron because I led spades, (Low was on my left.) even though it was the player who passed to him that led them again and bled queen. Like it was my fault that somebody opted to pnp. Geez. Another player to add to the dnp list.

Yes I play bridge, though I'm a little rusty. I find of one the problems with online bridge is having a partner who plays same type of bidding conventions. I used to play a lot of duplicate with a regular partner and we played some odd ball stuff. Now if I play I stick to simple stuff that I learned...

I think the point people were making is that people cheat to TRY to achieve a high rating. Whether they do or not that's a whole different story. I wouldn't know because nobody is going to get a high rating beating me. :lol:

What if someone's MSN name is all numbers like icq? LOL But perhaps somebody could put chatname-M for MSN, chatname-Y for yahoo, etc.

I love lowman play, and thought the Zone Case's Ladder room had some of the best lowman play around. The ladder system treated 2-4 as equal losers in the game. Most of the games were hard fought, and there rarely was lackluster play due to 2nd being the same as 4th. I found players more willing to t...

Oh, there is collaberation going on, Jerry! To think otherwise means you are in denial... I cannot add any more to what has already been said... but there are way too many tables where un-natural plays keep occuring. Cards, by definition, are random ... and there is no way three players can play th...

simple guide for "regular" hearts, 100 pt shoot... 1. Always cover UR passes IF possible(keep a heart larger than 1 U pass) 2. Try and hit low person 3. Don't dump points arbitrarily 4. Don't break hearts on low person 5. Consider aiding "safety" moon to high person to allow game to continue 6. Pla...

Thanks!!!

I forgot about passing. I guess to keep it a true comparision it would have to be all hold hands.

Has anyone tried to create an online duplicate hearts room?

Re: Duplicate Hearts

The other problem with random deals is that, say, you are playing in a room of 50 tables... you could be the best player on the planet, but just get some nasty random deals, and you would rate at the bottom... while the worst player in the room got such a favorable deal that he ranks top... Duplica...

Luna only talking about this being an Option for those that wish to select it. Some don't like to chat during a game. I win more when I don't chat and some days I like to play a serious game. JUST DUST I don't mind the idea of no chat, but I just find it extremely rude not to at least aknowledge th...

/me wonders if there may be an option to make a game "NO CHAT" (only effect the game chat) that could be programmed in as an option and how many would like that? /me thinks invite feature would help get rid of unwanted players that a host could ask a player if they wish to join their optioned "Invi...
