On Sunday at the country club, there was much controversy about a move I made. Here's the setup:
In my hand I had: FF 33669 DDD DDJ.
The 369 were in bams, with three red dragons, two soaps and a joker.
It was towards the end of the game. No 9 bams had gone out, so there were still three out there somewhere.
A soap went out and I called it. Then I threw the joker.
What an uproar! "What did you do that for? How could you call and then throw a joker?"
Well, people, why do you think?
Two picks later I picked the 9 bam and presented a jokerless hand.
Every game has its unusual moves. I will be reporting on other ones as they come up.
