ranked pinochle game tonight
#1
I'm just posting here on the off chance that anyone wants to join. I'll be sitting at a ranked pinochle table tonight, 8 PM EDT (Boston USA time), at World of Card Games. Ranked games are described in a blog post.

You have to play at least 10 games at the site before you can play a ranked game.

I've been trying to play 1 ranked pinochle game per day... seems to be working so far.

We got our game going, but it took a while. I was joined by sue almost immediately... then it was a bit of a wait, and finally a couple other players joined us.

garnerted, my partner, brought me good luck. Here's the final hand:

I'm pretty sure that East was thinking about the bidder-out rule when they bid. We were just about neck and neck, and it was likely that whoever won the bid would win the game. They would have gotten it if they'd had just a bit more meld.
