Spider GM Comments: I’m assuming this completes the round, unless Bart/Bug can justify moves like “gd” or “hg” etc. Also, a rare lapse from IM Bug who forgot to mention the Jack of Clubs in his song lyrics.

Round three, Score 441.

It doesn’t look like we have any weighty decisions to make. All those nice 8s are good for receiving 7s, but they themselves are immobile at present. Try for a space in column 5, and if nothing good happens there, try for column 2.

eh, ei. If nothing good, continue with
ba, bh, bf.

If we had gotten the jack of clubs, or if we get it now, we can remove the clubs…

1. And that completes the round – at least we got more than the absolute minimum turnovers 🙂

2. .eh, ei = Turnover the Club Jack

Followed by .ba, bh, bf = TurnOver the 5 of Dia.

Now those two cards could dramatically change the outlook of this hand.

But if no help …. Cleanup time is upon us.

.gf, jg

Even if we get two no-play cards and if we can avoid continuing our King Komplex, we will still have an AtomicVoid and an AtomicTurnover heading into the final 20. I’ve been in worse shape.
