About
The old standby, the ever-popular double tuck. Here, there, everywhere, it cannot be kept down. The double tuck is given the same value as the double pike on floor, presenting a rather solid argument to downgrade the double tuck to a C to reflect relative difficulty, but nothing doing yet. Although, having the tuck at the same value hasn’t exactly curtailed the pervasiveness of the double pike anyway.

This is among the skills that Nellie Kim has decided she invented starting recently.

Value
D
