Joker, Joker, Deuce…….. An essay by William Marshall

My partner said he had a maybe, I only had one. “Looks like we are going board,” I sighed. We were playing Spades and we were losing. Next time we are probably going to have to go “Blind Six” or pray that we have a “10 for 2” hand. Rules varied about whether you could upgrade to a “10 for 2” after calling a “Blind Six.” It was complicated. Watch out leading with Spades before something has been cut. No renigs! You always knew that you were in the big league if you were playing Joker, Joker, Deuce…….. Just sit and watch partner. I’m running a Boston!
