Re: The G with some Basics.

I have had some real good feedback on, why, the failure, the success of "The Next Call" i think a little look at this is warranted, i know and hope players put their dime or pennies worth in. When i started playing this game, we also played a real fun version. This required the dealer to automatical...

Re: New suits smileys

Dust, before i even opened this thread, i said to myself, i bet Dust has mentioned 7s up to Jonas. My insight is good at the moment, hah, but it will fade. :) :)

Re: The G with some Basics.

Have had quite a few IMs and emails on what has been discussed in the forum lately eg. scenarios, different players play patterns, why they shouldn't do this, should do that etc. I thought about it pretty deeply and i don't only feel, i know the playing standard on HW within those top players is not...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Yep, thousands of scenarios, we can all do them. As for making up statistics on the spot, nope i don't do that, i have a statistics manager to do that for me. If you work out the different card combinations, not just the SUITS, you will find that the 5% aint far out. I didn't say i would never lead ...

Re: The G with some Basics.

The point was, that ace can take a trick at any stage of the hand if they have a heart, so why lead it? Give your partner a chance to do something on the 1st lead. Sure, you can build a scenario on why you should lead it, and in that scenario it would work, but only if they have two of the same offs...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Have been watching some great 1900 & 2000 games in the last couple of weeks, but have picked out three very bad plays which cost the game many times (In my opinion). (1) I just don't understand why such good players, when they make trump, their P leads the left, you take it with the right, and lead ...

Nope, never done that, that is an awesome feat by Bre. My Nic "Oh Me Oh My" reached 1950 in 82 games, then got killed for awhile. :( :(

Re: The G with some Basics.

The discussion on Loppy Tables, runaway loners, players calling for 7s up, all of these things can be curbed a little, but once again HW has to do it. On the 1st page of this thread, which is two years ago now, i called for all games to be played to 11, which is fairly common in other parts of the w...

Re: The G with some Basics.

I was going to put this LEAD scenario in the Forum a few months ago, but held back to obtain some more statistics from you guys by watching, and how you handle it. It's a favourite NO NO lead for me, and works 90% of the time. When my Father tried to teach me this game, i think most of his instructi...

Re: G's Bot Coaching In Action!!!! Take a look!

Hehehehe, Omg, the bludgers are actually listening to me. King Arthur was the hardest to coach, he kept blocking his P all the time with his insipid hands. Told him straight "Do something outstanding or go back to England" He informed me he was working on an outstanding play, which i will be blown a...

Re: The G with some Basics.

Knock Knock, who's there? It's Jonas G, iv'e got 700 decks of 7s up for you, they tell me you have been doing a lot of bleating for them. Thanks mate, about time you came to the party. Yeah well I have been doing a lot of work in Spades and Hearts, but was told you guys needed a 7s up fix, so here i...

Re: Placebo Effect...

Lol, yeah yeah. All i have said, was that with the short deck and 84% of the cards in play, and with card distribution the way it is, it is very common to have a Loner lurking at nearly every hand dealt. With 7s up where you have just 62% alive, the chances of that closet loner are less. But i see y...

Re: Unreal high ranking?

I have said dozens of times in many different threads, the 7s up game WILL and DOES eliminate the tedious loner that the short deck dishes out. You can put what ever spin you like on it, try all different combinations, but believe me with this game the boring loner will not bail you out like it does...
