Tichu

Jon/Nadine S1010 Haim/Nadine 690

Nadine: It would have been closer if Haim had called Tichu the two times he had good hands and went out first. I made two GTs; Jon did a good job blocking one of my regular Tichus – he called Tichu when I had two cards left, Ace and Dragon, he bombed my long straight and went out, he would have even if I had played differently. Nadine S, my RHO, had called a 2 on a straight including the 1. Then she played a full house with 3 10’s. I had two 2’s, and a bomb of jacks. I realized that I at least needed to ask if I had to play, which I did, so I used my bomb. We hadn’t played in a while. Second time for Nadine S who needed a review and advice. I was following the second World Cup semifinal on my phone, Croatia came back to beat England 2-1.
