I set a new record today. Gail and I played at Mosswood, as we do every Tuesday, and we managed a total of FOUR plus scores.
We made one game, and one partial. Set the opponents twice. That’s all, folks. Every one of the other 22 boards we got a negative score on–although we were only set twice, the opponents made 6 games and 3 slams.
At least our score sheet was exceptionally tidy. And we weren’t last. We weren’t next to last. Third underall, that’s us. 41.14%, which is actually much better than I thought we were doing.
Once, 4 or 5 years ago, Gail and I had a 28% game. Today’s game felt just as bad, yet was almost half again as good. Probably because it is so hard to estimate your game when all the cards are against you and they are making contract after contract.
At least it’s over. But that’s the single most dreadful looking private score I have ever seen, and I hope to never see one like it again.
