A thread from 1998 rgp

Here's a thread started with a question about psychological impact of color of the suits where Caro/Sklansky/Carson/and even Paul Phillips (who once vowed to spit in my face if he ever met me) actually agree that people are more likely to draw to spade flushes than to flushes in other suits.

With the hand histories available today somebody could actually test that hypothesis.

That's funny because I used to play a lot of bridge and I do sort of feel AsTs and AhTh are stronger than the "minors". I know it's not good thinking but when you've trained your brain one way...

I think that partly because of the bridge suit ranks there's a cultural predisposition towards spades. There's also the Qs being a point card in Hearts. And, of course the Spades game.

When I first started I noticed that women were playing a lot of junk hands suited in diamonds. I didn't keep on observing though.
