Yes, I know that I have been guilty in both the present and the past of dubbing Toss (7 9) as "The Curse," but we shall likely be cursed here if we *don't* Toss (7 9).

Toss (7 9) *only* averages about one lousy point worse than Toss (7 T), which incidentally is probably our best defensive resource, so why indeed not Toss (7 9)?

If we're *bold* here, we lead the Ten Card; otherwise, we might usually choose to lead the Trey.

But as we're likely to be in a very *defensive* mood and posture here, some might wish to be more 'tentative' today and thus lead an Ace.

How's *that* for covering all of the bases?! I'll in fact lead the Trey, since another Trey was Cut. Focus on defense today.

Close to my desired position, so won't take any risks with 7-9. Only cuts of 777,8888 won't help me. Ace lead from my A9A eleven.

7-9 no but 7-10 a lot less riskier. Once again its mostly about what they get here. Ace lead. No pegging.No crib. Await next deal. dec

That was pleasant. I was afraid that an 8 would show up as the starter. Time for a little defense. Lead the ace and play off? What happens in the ace is paired?

I think we need to push forward and toss 7-9 which as has been said previously, is less than a point difference between this toss and 7-T. Expected averages favor 7-9.

Keeping the 9-10 with the aces gives me a good chance to score 3-4 points at the end of the count. Also, to much upside to 7-9.

I always cut an eight when I do this but I keep doing it.
