A complete, utter dealer special.

Final score...556-0.  10 hands.  Dealer burned them once, the no-meld hand, AND we got 36.  We get burned by the dealer, but they have no meld.  And that was pretty much the story of the whole game:

[Melds "55:16"]
[Melds "47:16"]
[Melds "36:14"]
[Result "NOMELDS"]
[Melds "36:24"]
[Melds "48:30"]  
[Melds "33:34"]  
[Melds "26:10"]
[Melds "61:12"]
[Melds "56:37"]

And, of the 8 times we made, we pulled 31 (usually with room to spare) 6 times.  Their defense was probably a bit soft, but I don't recall anything really bad.  IIRC, too, we each had runs, my partner and I...like 4 times.  

This was extreme, but VERY lopsided games seem too common on PlayOK.  And those hands of run with run...that's a reason why PlayOK seems to foster so many insane bidders.  PlayOK is extremely streaky.  IIRC, when I ran my dealer...which might be flawed, I'll grant...the chance of partners having a run in the same suit was, I think, about 5%.  But that counted cases where it wasn't the trump suit.  Then it happens 4 times in 10 hands, in the trump suit?  And never 5 opposite 5...at least 7 opposite 5, maybe 6, and one I recall was 7 opposite 7...each with double ace runs.  Yeah, OK, it'll happen from time to time, but that *badly* stretches credibility.
