The good news is that there's no money involved. The bad news is that I've never played 42 before.
I friend called last week and said that they needed a player. Was I interested? I explained that I have never played, but was willing to learn.
Yeah, I guess they were that desperate!
Another friend who has played 42 for several years came by to show me the mechanics of playing the game. I feel like a player that's new to Texas Hold'Em, I know the rules, but NOTHING about the strategy.
What's a good starting hand? I know in HE, but 42, not so much. How high to bid? Is there trapping?
No doubt I'll be the little fishy in a tank full of sharks.
Anyhoo, does anyone have some advice on how to not look like an idiot playing this game? I've heard it's similar to bridge, but I don't know anything about bridge either. However, I do know an expert bridge player that might be able to help!
Where are you MOJO?
Till next time, win the flips.
