I knew when you bid that the game was over. Haha.

I knew we had to make a splash, but my hand was so putrid I couldn't do a thing.

Well done!!

I really liked my hand and wanted to force you to bid 9.

I got really good cards almost every time, I feel bad that the new players didn't get a chance to lead.

I was going to go No Trump on that hand that get redealt. I had all 4 aces, that's the only way I'd bid no trump without the Joker.

If you only picked up the JOKER and 2 other trumps in the Widow, an 8 Hearts bid was bold, indeed.

Yeah, it was bold. But I had 5 trump (both bowers) and the A Diamonds. That's basically 5 tricks right there. Just needed some help from WK if the widow was bunk.

I had a hand full of clubs, and was going to bid 7 - but that worked out.

Yeah, it was.

It's even more fun sitting around a table with friends and/or family, with a huge bowl of popcorn and other snacks and maybe a couple of adult beverages.

The women-folk yap about something or other and the men-folk talk about the game.

I really don't mind dealing. I was able to help you guys out even when I didn't have much time. I don't have the time to learn the game right now, but I can squeeze in being the dealer.
