The adjacent ticket, 16-spots marked in two groups of four, two groups of three and a deuce (2-spot) is a simple extension of a ticket 4-3-2 that we discussed back on Oct. 14.

Thanks to Carol for inspiring this column with her e-mail! This ticket is a great one if you like the 4-3-2 9-spot.

As far as the 9-spots go on this ticket, they are constructed in the best possible way (4-3-2) with the only weakness being the deuce.

It is obvious that the deuce plays on all of the 4-way-9s, so you must hit something on the deuce (solid is best) to get a good hit on one of the nines. Pick a good deuce!

The 8-spots are pleasing and simple: 4-4 and 3-3-2. I like the way that the 8-spot ways counteract the 9-spot ways. And, you get a lot more action.

As far as other ways on this ticket you may want to try, a 1-way-14, a 2-way-13, a 2-way-12, a 2-way-11, a 3-way-10, a 4-way-7, a 3-way-6, a 2-way-5, a 2-way-4 and a 2-way-3.

For me, any way from the sevens on up is playable on this ticket. All of the ways are pretty simple so it is an easy ticket to check "off the board" you don’t need to be a math wizard to figure out your winners.

This is an enjoyable and not too expensive ticket to play.

Well, that’s it for now. Good luck! I’ll see you in line!
