 Pineapple Open Face Chinese Quiz 4 

So here we have to decide whether we want to split our pair and keep the dream of FantasyLand alive, or just settle with 88 up top.  Note that closing off the bottom here in an attempt to keep running big pairs alive is  abig mistake (3 points!)

 Pineapple Open Face Chinese Quiz 4 Question 2

This is a pretty bad draw.  We really have to make the most out of our cheese here.  I think people are undervaluing spots like this because they look uninteresting.  I am finding out quickly that being able to play the boring spots right is really what seperates the men from the mice.  I think its pretty clear we should leave the flush open on the bottom, as a pair of 3's isn't strong enough.  Then the second thing I am thinking is, I want to leave FantasyLand opportunities open as well.  So that leads me to put the 5 middle and one of the other cards up top.  Instinctively, I think it should be the 8, since it's a higher card , it can give us a royalty if we pair it, and would tie my opponents 8XX under some conditions.  I was surprised to learn that my intuition was making a mistake of .2 points!

 Pineapple Open Face Chinese Quiz 4 Question 4

So while in Question 3, it was quite obvious we didn't want to pair the back, we now have the opportunity to 2 pair the back, which is a big difference.  Or we could set an agressive FL allin with Q top 5 middle.  I wasn't sure what the answer was going to be, I really was stumped with this one, and there are so many different ways it could go.

Best Answer: Q Back, 3 Back: -4.813

3 Front, 5 Middle: -5,048

5 Middle Q Front: -5.227

3 Front Q back: -5

3 Back Q Front: -

Q back 5 Middle: -6.019

Hi Derric

Hi Derric, I've not received my results nor had my Contact Us message replied; could you kindly look into it  as I also asked a question about upgrading my premium membership to the higher tier one.
