My Word! April 29




A hand of cards in Bridge or Whist containing no Aces, face cards, or cards above a nine.

Hilda was very unlucky at Bridge and once was dealt 5 yarboroughs in a row.

This one goes back to only around 1900 when the second Earl of Yarborough was rumored to have bet 1000 to one that such a hand would not be dealt.
