The Schnapsen Log
You are back at the Café Abeles, at your favorite table, playing cards with your buddy Peter. Outside it’s steaming hot and humid, but in here the ceiling fans and heavy stone walls keep things nice and cool. Cool enough that you’re enjoying your hot coffee while you play.
It’s been a close game so far and you’re in the endgame of a close deal where no one declared a marriage and the stock has just been exhausted.
Peter: (29 points)
You: (38 points)
Game points: Peter 3, You 3
On lead: You
You can see Peter’s remaining cards in your mind’s eye; you notice that they mirror your own cards, so are easy to remember. With only 5 cards remaining in each hand, how difficult can it possibly be to come up with a good plan? When you think you have one, you are welcome to read my analysis.
