Hello All

 Through April 7th, I have now played in 43 BBO Support Your Club Duplicates and 3 Support Your Club Day Long Events.  (You know I am a computer nerd so don’t be critical)

My current stats are :

Average Score  47.32%

Total Black Points Earned: 9.16 (4.59 March – 4.57 April to date)

Total Fees Paid: $238

Total Fees Accrued to our Club $190

Total Unique Partners: 23

Number of Partners who will not Play with me again: 5

(This is probably due to my average Bridge Abilities)

Number of Partners I will not play with again: 9

(This is probably biased by my frail and flawed ego and desire to succeed)

Number of Nice People: 21  (do not ask about the missing 2)

Number of Events Played: 46

Number of Days Played: 17  (get a life! – hey I’m shut in)

Interesting Events:

  1. I Paid Entry Fees  ($10) for an Expert to play with me.  I did get some masterpoints and a good percentage. Here are the tips I got:  Don’t play Cappelletti Convention because it applies so rarely and natural bidding is easier ( He probably said this because I appeared to be unable to cope with complexity) .  Don’t lead away from an Ace in a Suit Contract.  Worth $5?  It was fun though.

  1. Had to go to the bathroom in the middle of a round.  Discovered that my smart phone app worked perfectly well while I was there.  Is this too much information?

You can see this ‘Stay at Home’ order and my love of Bridge has created a monster

Seriously,  this is great fun.  You all should get all in --- go see the tutorials at https://www.acbl.org/bbotutorials/  and get into this.
