As Luck Would Have It
Peter’s friend Lore has joined the two of you for a cozy afternoon at your favorite daytime hangout, the Café Abeles. Today’s special is Linzertorte and, of course, lots of hot coffee and cards. You are preoccupied with the fact that you haven’t yet scored a single game point against Lore, though in the back of your mind there is also the concern that Peter will get the last piece of Linzertorte.
Stock: 1 face-down card
Game points: Lore 3, You 7
Trick points: Lore 41, You 46
On lead: Lore
With no hesitation Lore pulls out the ♦ marriage to show you, returns the king to her hand, leads ♦Q, and goes back to her Linzertorte. Plan your play. When you think you have a good plan, you are welcome to read my analysis.
