That sure is a shiny lure there lets see if I can steal the bait here. Looks like I might have escaped with the prize here possibly. Play the percentages and position that the cut might be ours alone. Eight lead, I am not a big fan of a possible six or five response here. dec

I am going for it! Starting with eight points and a possibility of 16 maximum vs. three points and a maximum of 8 points tossing the balking cards of 10-K (usually worth 2 points in opponent's crib).

Position Position. I need help to get my next CPZ. Opponent is already there. Playing defense not my nature anyway. Go for it KK away. Go find some horses for your kingdoms.

Great minds think alike... strongly feel I have to keep the double run.

I doubt it'll be the optimum hold, but I'd like to see how 10-K would fare, especially since I have another of each.

The only way I can possibly reach the desired board position is to "go for it!"
BINGO! Lead the 8 and hope the net of 10 points plus pegging points is enough to get us where we want to be on our deal.

Sneaky Inushtuk! This exact scenario is in DeLynn's book in his chapter on position,how do I remember these things? Our opponent is just past the CPZ, we will be there dealing next hand with just a couple points. We are 26 points from the NEXT one, we can't get there with a 16 hand. So its defense for me.

Gambit paid off. Always a worry when I have to give my opponent points. Lead the 9?

Sorry DeLynn. I know you're a five time national champion, and have about 50,000 more MRP's than me; but I have to disagree with you on this one. The cut hit my hand. God only knows how much damage I did by tossing the cowboys. Offense on the lead of the 8.

For me in this position....this is a no-brainer.

Given that 'Dealing from Beyond Hole 70' is the coveted positional goal of Third Street, would we rather be Pone or Dealer today?
Since we're now Pone and since we may have already in a sense met that goal ourselves, throwing points to our Opponent (who is now dealing from Hole 73, a subjectively superior POSITION) will possibly only serve to help our Opponent better meet that same goal!
Therefore I think it may be better to 'hedge' here and Toss (T K).
And look: after the 9 Card Cut, we have a Double RUN! Who Knew?
