This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

October 20

 

Over/Under

 

There was much interest in the USF-Notre Dame football game that occurred this past Saturday. One of the interesting things is that due to uncertainties with regard to the USF quarterback, there was no betting line on the game for much of the week before the game, according to that famous bookie, Charlie the Greek.

 *

With the upcoming tournament, we went to Charlie the Greek to get the early line on the results. Charlie was not prepared to give odds on the winners yet because the participants are not yet known. (It would probably help him to know that you are planning to play – I hope that you are). However, he was willing to give me two over/under bets to consider. He thought that for any single game, 50% of the players would score over 50% and 50% would not.

*

 

So, plan to play in the tournament –  the Sectional tournament and/or the NAP District Finals this coming weekend (October 24-6). According to Charlie, you have a 50% chance of scoring more than 50%! Details are  at www.stpetebridge.org

*

 

The second over/under bet for the tournament that he gave me was snacks. He said that I could choose over or under 50 different snacks/cookies that would be brought.  I’m choosing the over – So I hope that you will sign up to bring something on the sign up sheet at the club. And I really hope you will bring items whether you sign up or not.

*

 

The Greek went on to say that any individual’s future betting line would improve if they took Larry Cohen’s seminars on Saturday November 8. He will be talking about Signals in the morning and Bidding against Opponents Pre-empts in the afternoon. Sign up for this super day at the club. Flyers are at the club and details are also on the web site. Spots are filling up fast.

The Greek (or Charlie as he is know to his friends) predicted that another interesting bet is how many tables would play at the club during the 4 days prior to the tournament. His bet was 80 and invited me to pick over or under. Once again, I chose over and so you had better come out to the club often this week for these activities:

Charlie concluded our time together by telling me that staying home was Overrated and that, in his mind, the bridge club was Underpraised. I hope that you agree and that I will see you at the club!
