Lunch Time Tichuers 04/20/2006

When we were picking for partners, Adam picked a Queen and I picked an 8. So I was joking that Ed and Mike needed to pick 7 or below. Then when Ed picked a King, I joked that now Mike needed to pick an Ace (or King). And what did Adam draw for Mike, but an Ace! So our fates were indeed sealed.

This is another game where Tichus (or Grand-Tichus) were called on every hand. In fact, it was more extreme, since there were multiple over-calls! On my first hand I was tempted to call Tichu but I had a single 4 and 10 to get rid of. So when Mike called Tichu, I was happy to set him. Unfortunately, our team got no points. So it was 0 to 0 after one round.
