Swiss teams, 23 of them, I believe. My team – Selina Volpatti, Usha Khurana and Joe Miranda – gets off to a fast start, winning two of the first three rounds and providing Selina with the quarter of a silver point she needs for what? She’s not quite sure. Hope it’s Life Master.
But then we hit the wall, losing four straight rounds and playing our final set of hands in the round robin group. We lose against one of our round robin opponents, but win by a bigger margin against the other. I’m not sure if that counts as winning a fraction of a round or a full round. The final master point tally will tell. Each winning round is worth 0.26 of a point. We’ll have either 0.65 or 0.78.
Once again director Brian Meyer hustles the players through their paces. The Swiss team sessions usually don’t finish until after 5 p.m. (which is why I took tonight off from work), but this one is done shortly after 4:30 p.m. Could have gone to the office after all. Came home and did some much-needed yard work instead.
