Thanks to April, my first 10-point month of the year, I’m standing on the threshold of 1,700 career points. The latest total, according to the ACBL’s “Check Your Masterpoints” portal, is 1,695.04.
Not included, of course, are my three small successes so far in May – the 51.92% game with Selina Volpatti on Friday at the Bridge Centre of Niagara in St. Catharines, Ont., which brought us 0.36 of a point; the 51.75% game with Cleveland Fleming on Saturday at the Airport Bridge Club, good for 0.49 of a point; and a solid 56.55% effort on Monday at the Airport Club with Marietta Kalman. Second north-south in an extra-point game, that was worth 1.18 points. So make that a career total of 1,697.07.
