Hi Jim2,

Like remarriage, your Slush cup trip is a triumph of hope over experience!

Happy New Year though to you and everybody.

Best to you Bobby, and to all followers, for 2023.
I would never have Rabid Rebid’s problem. I would “Dodge” it by not opening in the first place, in spite of those prime cards.
Is passing it wise or too wimpy?

Jeff SJanuary 1st, 2023 at 5:24 pm

clarksburg, I had the same thought as you, prime cards, but no shape and intermediates are nothing to write home about. Just seems like the hand is too meh to open.

But really looking forward to hearing the verdict from Bobby, maybe we are just too cautious.

Hi everyone,

Happy NY to all the wonderful, wishful, wizards who wisely withdraw from the willingness to open this type of hand by waiting patiently.

Nothing terrible to do differently, but just not enough positive reasons to do otherwise.

Thanks to all of you winners for just getting to know you and feeling free and easy by doing so. My, how those years go by. and good luck to us all, both at the table and away.
