Need a defensive discard here, so I'll ignore the Q-2 option and choose between Q-8 and Q-9.

Q-9 is a better (from Pone's point of view) discard, but the flush starts with a higher hand value.

The 2 is the lead least likely to be scored on, but it is my escape card. If Dealer plays a middle card on it, I could get trapped in an unwelcome run. 6 lead.

Chose the diamonds and tossing 8-Q. If I remember correctly Ras stated that these cards are usually only worth 2 points 36% of the time.

I played the flush because I like the 8-K defensive throw. Iíll lead the seven and play the 2 if it gets fifteened or paired.

Will anyone dare try 6-Q or 9-Q?

The (Q-8) is almost as safe as (Q-9), with a much higher resulting average hand.

Playing defense to keep our opponent short of 111 as much as possible with the 2 lead.

Good luck everyone in Brookline tomorrow. See you there.
