Not a big week, but things have had a way of accumulating. A second place here, a fourth place there in the morning games at the Airport Bridge Club. And then there were the extra-point Swiss teams games in the afternoons – just 18 boards per session – that also paid off in 5% gold points, those flecks of gold (see Blog 453). In three Swiss team matches, I’ve picked up .13 gold point, which leaves me an even 3.0 short of Life Master. Total for the month at the club – 8.61. October harvest.
