Vacationing. A week away from the tables. But before I left, Selina Volpatti and I managed to scratch out some fractional success playing our usual aggressive game (she was declarer on nine of the 26 hands, I played six of them).
Plus it was Canadian STaC (Sectional Tournament at the Clubs) week, which cost $2 extra at the Bridge Centre of Niagara in St. Catharines. Big game. 17 tables. Once again we slip in slightly above the 50-50 mark – 52.76%. Five 16-point tops (for the best offensive one, see Blog 763). Three zeros, including two bad sacrifice bids. seventh in A North-South, fourth in B. 0.57 of a silver point. Less than 2 points from 1,700 now.
