        Have you ever heard of a certain Mr. Zeman, Alex? ;)

        Getting back in topic, are you sure that betting high is automatically a bad tactic? It's surely a reckless thing to do. But Orlanthi weaponthanes are supposed to be reckless, aren't they?

        Well, maybe not, but surely they are supposed to be boastful (as per the keyword). And after the battle what are they going to boast? How they heroically and manly hid behind their shields until their foes were too tired to wield their weapons? Surely this is a woman's (and solar) tactic!

	A tactical Alex.
