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. Nothing doing yet. Although, having the tuck at the same value hasn’t exactly curtailed the pervasiveness of the double pike.

The double tuck is among the skills that Nellie Kim has decided she invented…starting recently. Where she stops, nobody knows.

Value
D
