Bridge Blog 773: Bonus checks

It’s true that it takes a least a 60% game to earn district-wide bonus points in the Sectional Tournament at the Clubs (STaC), but sometimes there’s a reward for the high 50s, too.
That’s happened twice so far this week. On Monday morning, my 59.07% with Marilyn Sultz was worth 1.42 silver points at the club level, but now that the District 5 tallies are up, we’re fifth in the district-wide B stratification. That 1.42 points has turned into 2.58.
Tuesday morning’s 58.60%  game with Eva Schmidt, which gave us 0.99 of a point at the club level, got an even bigger bump from District 5. We were fourth in the B strat, getting 2.67 points. Readjusted point count for the first 10 days of June – 11.93.
Something extra is sure to come from that wonderful Wednesday morning game with Celine Murray, where we tied for first overall with 61.03%. Already it’s good for 1.5 silver point at the club. But for the third day in a row, the hot morning session gave way to a lackluster afternoon – 45.46% – not helped by the fact that my partner reneged not just once, but twice. Ouch!
