Even thou all I needed was five points I wanted to break up as few possibilities that seven points could be pegged here. I believe the ace might be the best lead thinking it might end up being a part of a trip possibility and breaking up any runs possible involving six,seven and eight. Live and learn. dec

I only need 4 points and want to keep 6-7-8 but what else? Think that a queen might be an escape card. I need to peg out here before pone gets to peg and count out needing 7 points. A good learning example is presented today.

Hope to trap a five with my 6-7. The face cards will help advance the count.

I think mine will be a lone voice today, but let's see if I can win by keeping away, J-7.

Will keep the four of the six cards with high to moderate pegging value. It works like this: A, 2, 3, 4, 5 have high pegging value, 6-7-8-9 have moderate pegging value, Jack has low pegging values, and 10, Q, and K, have no pegging value. Don't want an escape card with opponent needing 7 points. RAS will take any pegs offered. Yes I would pair the Ace as it gives me two points and keeps the count low enough that opponent can not score 15-2. If unable to pair an opponent card as this pegging sequence progresses, will attempt to keep the 6-7 intact as just might pick off a five spot since I didn't have one. If you were to choose a defense pegging strategy, you should know that is 5-1 against holding non-dealer to 6 points. If you were to do so, Rosemarie44 points the way. Hold 6-7-8-Q. Get rid of the A and the Jack as those are the two cards that just might add pegs to opponent effort. Needing four pegs, I will play on the lead. Will need some luck although with opponent 7 points from win, we can give up some pegs to get our four. Even so, three pegs for dealer is quite frequent. Four pegs is a stretch! Need to execute a pegging plan flawlessly and hope opponent does not screw it up. That is better labeled luck!

Its unlikely that Pone will peg 7pts so we need to try our best to peg 4pts. Without a doubt A-6-7-8 is the best pegging hand out of this deal so I'll throw the J-Q and go for it.

Some players will hold non pegging cards when trying to hold opponent back in end game scenarios - like the K Q J 10 and 9 because he/she "knows" I'm going to be trying to hold pegging cards. If I know I'm playing a player like that I would have held the J Q here. Also I like to hold a 5 with people like that so I can 15/2 their X lead. Overall with most players it's A 6 7 8 for me in situations like this.

Holding the four cards with the most pegging value this morning, as we are on offense. Will definitely pair an ace lead as Pone still needs one more if s/he trips. Pairing a 7 or an 8 lead as well, as opposed to the *seemingly* safer (15-2) alternative. Will need a bit o' luck.

At 117*-114 playing an Optimal strategy for the pegging the chances of Our Pegging Out are:

Optimal______Our Peg Out %

6-7-8-Q has the best chance of Our Pegging Out so I'll select A-J to discard.

After the 2 cut I'll play Defense to the lead.

Like many other ailments, people are not properly informed about the reality of sleep apnea, especially if they have never dealt with it before. Many people begin to develop this issue later in life and are unaware of how to reduce problems with it- that is where this article comes in with useful tips!

Skip sleeping pills if you are prone to bouts of sleep apnea. You may feel you need them to get to sleep, but they have a similar effect as alcohol on the body. They also have additional side effects besides the obvious ones. Stay away if you want to lessen your sleep apnea symptoms.

Consider doing a few very specific exercises before going to bed each night, to alleviate some of your sleep apnea symptoms. Exercising throat and tongue muscles has been proven in scientific studies to reduce snoring, improve breathing and lessen the more profound effects of sleep apnea when done according to doctor's orders.

Improve your sleep apnea by slimming down a bit. Recent research showed dramatic improvements in overweight men who shed 25 pounds over a period of one year to reduce sleep apnea symptoms. In some cases, the weight loss resulted in a cure of sleep apnea where no further treatment of the condition was necessary.

Try your best to lay off tobacco and nicotine products. Cigarette smoke can irritate your upper airway causing it to swell up, subsequently hindering your ability to breath during the night. Quitting smoking could therefore, significantly improve your sleep apnea symptoms and will also improve your body's overall health and your feelings of well-being.

Keep your bedroom in prime shape for sleeping. Insomnia and sleep apnea are often connected. This makes keeping an environment in which you sleep at the right temperature, lightness level and sound level important for helping you get a good night of rest. The right environment also means leaving your stresses outside the bedroom to ensure you are relaxed enough to fall asleep.

The first thing to do when you think you are dealing with sleep apnea is to discover if it is really apnea or just advanced snoring. If you have a loved one sleeping with you, this can be done alone at home, but if not you may need to visit a sleep clinic.

You can reduce sleep apnea with exercises to strengthen throat muscles. Sleep apnea is often caused by the tissues in the throat, which can relax and collapse while you sleep. When your muscles strengthen, their chances of collapse and airway blockage go down.

If simple changes in your lifestyle, such as regular sleep hours and losing weight, have not eliminated your sleep apnea episodes, it is time to consult with a sleep specialist. The specific causes of your sleep apnea can be evaluated, and an individual treatment plan can be designed for you.

Life after your CPAP diagnosis may seem overwhelming at first. However, there is a lot of help to be found if you look for it. This article has shared just a few easy ideas for dealing with your sleep condition. Start applying these today, and you will feel more in control of your life in no time.
