The Three Kings.

Some of us have heard of the Rabbi’s Rule. “If the king is singleton play the Ace.”

While in New Orleans playing the Mixed Pairs with June Pocock I came across this deal.

Dealer West. Neither side vulnerable.

The lead was Ace of clubs, dropped the King from dummy, Jack, 7. North switched to the Queen of hearts, 3, Ace and once again dropped the King! South led the 10 of Diamonds, Ace, at this point I half expected another King to drop, but it was the 7, 5. Now June led the Queen of Spades, 5, Ace, dropped another singleton King!!!

What an amazing hand, three times the Rabbi’s rule.

They led a trump against me, so it wasn’t as hard to drop the king. After that, I made six (pitching the club from dummy on the long diamond). Cute hand.

We three Kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar…always nice to apply the Rule …whenever it’s applicable 🙂

Yes Dave matchpoints can be so random.

Good one Fred 🙂

Anna, you are so inspiring! I saw you on the Nate Berkus show and I was amazed. I am starting a new job at the end of April and that is when I am starting my spending fast! I owe my parents about $14-15,000 and I feel terrible about it everyday and I just want to get that stress off my back and this is probably the only way I’m going to succeed. Thank you for the inspiration!!!

Tell me, though, if you’re onto that scam, you know who the women are, yes? So it won’t happen to you, right? (But, hey, I might get away with that at my school…once.)

thanks for a great review. i’ve been *knowing* i need to do something about my prayer life lately – it’s totally waning – and yet it can sometimes get to a period where I feel so uninspired and it’s such an effort. perhaps a good book would help cultivate more hunger…
