Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
anything to see here?

Sometimes a hand is just too hard?
When in doubt, trust aphorisms like punching opponents when you have trump length :)
Conditional Restricted Choice
It is also trivial to understand the reasoning behind 0.5*21C11 versus 17C12 + 4C1*17C11 + 4C2*17C10 and calculate it at the table when playing online with a computing device handily available :-)

At the end of the day I'm glad that though my math was incomplete, my gut feel that finessing was anti-percentage (even with the assumption that it was a pure restricted choice situation) turned out to be right as Kurt's Combinations computing the odd favouring the drop showed.
