Just in case it wasn’t a double-digit month already, Dianne Bloom and I took October out on a Halloween high note. Maybe her hat bewitched the opposition.
Playing mostly defense North-South, we had four top boards, a couple more ties for tops and only one absolute zero. A 52.08% game, it was still second-best overall and tops in the B strat for 0.49 of a point, bringing the total for the month to something like 11.87. It’s a far cry from last October’s 35.15, though. At this point in 2012, I had 202 points overall and 164.50 for club play.
