According to the ACBL, I finished November with a career total of 1,796.41 master points and I’ve had a pretty good month so far, beginning with that 71.53% game with Marilyn Sultz on Dec. 1. Have I hit my goal of 1,800 before Christmas? Here’s the roundup:
Dec. 1 w/Marilyn Sultz, 71.53%, 0.90 point.
Dec. 2 w/June Feuerstein, 46.39%.
Dec. 3 w/Celine Murray, 63%, 0.42 point.
Dec. 4 w/Nancy Kessler (!), 52.24%, 0.48 point.
Dec. 5 w/Selina Volpatti in St. Catharines, 43.60%.
Dec. 6 w/Marietta Kalman at Unit 116 annual meeting, 51.90%, 0.26 point. (Something also should be said about the meeting itself, but I’m not up for it at the moment.)
And now for STaC (Sectional Tournament at the Clubs) week with silver points and double sessions:
Dec. 8 a.m. w/Usha Khurana, 57.17%, 0.91 point.
Dec. 8 p.m. w/Usha, 43.52%.
Dec. 9 a.m. w/Celine Murray, 51.10% (a tenth of percent out of winning points).
Dec. 9 p.m. w/Ron Henrikson, 58.13%, 0.84 point. Hooray! That nailed it!
Of course, the STaC awards extra points on a district level. Was Monday morning good enough to win some? Nope, not quite. We needed at least 58%.
