Again, another short round. The game state is rather poor – if we don’t get a space in column 5 then there are very few plans corresponding to any letter of the alphabet after ‘A’. And sure enough, we got a dreaded King of Diamonds. At least we managed to clear every face-down card in Column 2 and our Club suit is almost complete. The only bright spot is it’s hard to make a mistake when options are severely limited. Maybe it would have been wiser to decline the initial double and start afresh. At least we know next time if Villain is willing to stake the entire match on a single game then he probably has a very good reason.
With three Eights being dealt simultaneously, I think it would be good to see a few Nines in the next round …

Road trip tomorrow, Tuesday, so I will be unplugging my electrical umbilical cord until late Wed, possible Thursday.
Enjoy your trip, hope it’s a good one
