LOL geesh when i started this thread i dint expect such a debate. I gotta say I will bid nil with the lone king of sp if my pard goes 5, but i dont think ive ever discussed it with a pard. Sooo does that still count as cheating? I had a p the other day go 5 and i went nil after another player went n...

I still dont see how this is cheating?? Is it any different then parding the same player over and over again and at some point discussing your playing? Its like saying p if you lead me spades I will always play my highest and return spades. Do people not discuss games they play after they play them?...

Ok shell wut i am asking really only matters if you use the 5 rule. I never know which of my pards do or not so sometimes i adjust my bids depending on spade holding. I will answer my own questions maybe it makes sense. If i bid 5 i am promising my partner that i have the Ace or King of spades. 1. I...

The Big 5

1. Who uses the "BIG 5" when bidding with their partners? 2. Do you bid nil if your pard goes 5, knowing they have the ace or king of spades? 3. Do you bid 4 when holding a 5 bid when not holding the ace of spades? 4. Do you bid 5 when holding the ace and king of spades but no cover in the offsuit? ...

Ralphie I couldnt have said it better. The simple fact is that if you dont like being kicked at the start of the game then host your own game on your own TERMS. The positive on the BOOT far out weighs the negitive.

I voted no tooo. I actually use that button. In fact i used it last night when a player came to my table to annoy me. I dont use the ban button, but i would if they kept at me. I have not seen the feeding frenzy, but I know I wil kick low rated players if im in a provie game. As far as you being hig...

NP....True about winning only matters to the outside world..BUT you gotta admit people chose their pards by their win loss most of the time.

I just like playing and being challanged. Sometimes it works sometimes it dont. Either way as long as i learn and eventually break bad habits im good.

depends on how they helped...Did they do something really dumb or did they just overbid? Did they not spend enough time trying to kno the proper bid? Did a fake them out? LOL

I personally would rather win by outsmarting them. A win is a win tho hehe
