I just deleted a comment to the post I made last night because I didn't particularly appreciate the content coming from an anonymous poster. I then just spent 30 minutes writing a profanity-laced tirade in response to that comment but decided against posting it. Blogger doesn't let me disable anomymous posts - if I want to let all of the readers here leave comments, then I am forced to allow anonymous posts as part of that. Nonetheless, I don't have to keep them if I don't like them.
If you are the person that left that comment and you have the balls to leave your name this time around, please restate your comment in the original post and I'll provide a thoughtful response as to how I disagree with your main point, particularly as it pertains to the game on Friday night. But if you're only going to make anonymous comments, then I'm not going to put up with you calling me out like that and you can keep your comment to yourself.
I will go ahead and ask you a question though, please tell me what the proper starting strategy is - the strategy with the highest expected return in the long run (assuming one chooses to play) - for a friendly game of 727. And furthermore, please tell me how "good player" can not use this strategy and still win with "bad cards".
And if you have to go look up the rules for 727 as I kind of suspect you do, then my point is already going to be made.
What does the poster's identity have to do with anything? Is his/her comments not valid simply because they don't have the "balls" as you put it to use a name? What if you don't even know the person, what would them leaving a name accomplish? Is this a private blog where only your group of friends is permitted to comment? I thoroughly enjoy this blog and it's contents but you don't know me and I wasn't the one who made the original post (although I was the one who called out Junell on an earlier post and he didn't wig, perhaps he doesn't have deletion powers) calling you out, pehaps the goal of this site of reaching out and influencing others is working. It's too bad that "censorship" had to happen, perhaps you will learn from this and allow more freedom of expression on your blog so it will continue to be a source of good information, stories, heartaches, etc.
727 while not a great "poker" game is a great card game and is almost as good as 333. All about reading and bluffing (and a little luck).
