Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ 8Гўв„ўВ , 8Гўв„ўВ¦, 8Гўв„ўВЈ, 10Гўв„ўВ¦, 9Гўв„ўВЈ, 6Гўв„ўВҐ, 6Гўв„ўВЈ, 4Гўв„ўВЈ, 3Гўв„ўВЈ, 3Гўв„ўВҐ, AГўв„ўВ¦
Player B KГўв„ўВЈ, QГўв„ўВЈ, JГўв„ўВЈ, 10Гўв„ўВЈ, 10Гўв„ўВ , 7Гўв„ўВ¦, 3Гўв„ўВ¦, 3Гўв„ўВ , 2Гўв„ўВ , AГўв„ўВЈ

Conditions: This hand is the third hand of a set. Player A has already scored on the first two games, while Player B has not scored on any. The knock card is a 2Гўв„ўВ , so it is a double hand.

Play of the Hand:

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Having the odds in his favor, he throws his most useless card, the AГўв„ўВ¦. He is more concerned with retaining all of his combinations than holding a knock card at this point.

Player B Гўв‚¬вЂњ Realizing that his hand must be played for nine melded in order to affect a knock, he has no interest in picking the AГўв„ўВ¦. He picks from the deck the 7Гўв„ўВЈ and discards his AГўв„ўВЈ.

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Going to the deck, he draws the KГўв„ўВ  and discards it.

Player B Гўв‚¬вЂњ Picks the 5Гўв„ўВ¦ from the deck and now discards the 10Гўв„ўВ  as his safest choice. He realizes that it was a hanger on the end of a four-card run and could be used to develop another meld, but every other card in his hand is combined, so the 10Гўв„ўВ  is thrown.

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Picks the 9Гўв„ўВ¦ from the deck, which now gives him tremendous offensive combinations with his three 8Гўв‚¬в„ўs. In addition, since his opponent just threw the 10Гўв„ўВ , it is likely that this card could be followed with either the 10Гўв„ўВЈ or 9Гўв„ўВ . He discards the 3Гўв„ўВҐ rather than the 6Гўв„ўВҐ since the 6Гўв„ўВҐ could tie up a needed 8Гўв„ўВҐ, whereas the 3Гўв„ўВҐ could not tie up anything.

Player B Гўв‚¬вЂњ Takes the discarded 3Гўв„ўВҐ. Of course, he will remain with his 7Гўв„ўВЈ, 7Гўв„ўВ¦, 5Гўв„ўВ¦ combination and he has the choice of either throwing the dead KГўв„ўВЈ or retaining the 2Гўв„ўВ  for a knock. While the 2Гўв„ўВ  is less safe, there would be no point in throwing off his run at this early stage. For this reason he discards the 2Гўв„ўВ .

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Picks the QГўв„ўВ  from the deck and discards it.

Player B Гўв‚¬вЂњ Draws the 5Гўв„ўВЈ from the deck and discards the 7Гўв„ўВЈ as being the safest card.

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Taking the discard, he now has seven melded cards and has a choice of discarding either the 8Гўв„ўВ  or the 6Гўв„ўВҐ. The 6Гўв„ўВҐ can be used by his opponent either for 6Гўв‚¬в„ўs or in a heart run, while the 8Гўв„ўВ  can only be used for a spade run. The 6Гўв„ўВҐ, in addition, offers another opportunity for nine melded so he discards the 8Гўв„ўВ .

Player B Гўв‚¬вЂњ Going to the deck, he pulls the 4Гўв„ўВҐ. Not knowing whether the 7Гўв„ўВЈ is being used for 7Гўв‚¬в„ўs or for a club run; he does not have a safe card to throw unless he throws from his run. Even if he did, he would not be in a position to knock, and if he bought his nine melded he would then be faced with the same problem. He therefore discards the 4Гўв„ўВҐ.

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Picks from the deck the 7Гўв„ўВҐ, which he discards. It would be an excellent card to hold with the 6Гўв„ўВҐ since 8Гўв‚¬в„ўs have been established and he would not have to disclose to his opponent how the 7Гўв„ўВЈ is being used. However, if he threw the dead 4Гўв„ўВЈ he would then be faced with the problem of the 3Гўв„ўВЈ, since his opponent has already picked the 3Гўв„ўВҐ. He discards the 7Гўв„ўВҐ.

Player B Гўв‚¬вЂњ He is aware now that Player A holds a club run and he will not release the 5Гўв„ўВЈ. He picks and discards the QГўв„ўВҐ.

Player A Гўв‚¬вЂњ Draws the 2Гўв„ўВЈ from the stock, ginning the hand in the only way possible at this point.
