Your much delayed Tuesday night results. That’s Tuesday the 29th
I couldn’t understand why I couldn’t get onto our Gmail site, and then, this afternoon, when I drove down to the Cell C shop at Lakeside Mall to check how much data remained on our sim card, I was informed there was nothing left. So there you have it, just like trying to call someone without any airtime.
Sorry about that but here are your results.
Well done once again to that struggling pair, Paul and Bridie. They came galloping up the leaderboard in the second half of the evening after languishing somewhat in the first half. Ros and Cathy came a close second, just 0.67% behind. And there was another jackpot of 50% to Marianne and Caroline.
There were some astonishing hands again last night, then there were also some bland, pointless, boring, other hands. But this is the nature of the game, isn’t it? We pick those cards up in expectation every time. awaiting that moment of magic where the great hand you have always wanted is there in front of you, you bid, your partner bids, you make the greatest contract of your life and you purr quietly in total contentment. Ah, life is sweet, you are the King or Queen of the bridge world, even it’s just for that sweet moment., then you bid four and make only three. Back to the moment of truth.
Have a good afternoon and I’ll see you all tomorrow.
PS. I cannot attach the hand records because there’s a problem in accessing the file from Dealmaster.
