Congrats to the winners!
Didn't do as well as you hoped? Don't worry; it's 15 boards and there is a large luck factor in short sessions, so there are increased chances of scores outside the normal range of about 35-65%. Things tend to even out over time, but less time means less even-ing out!
Scores this week are decimal-ly because at one table it was discovered after about 10 tricks that one player had 12 cards and partner 14. It's important to get into the habit of counting your thirteen cards before looking at them and ensuring that you have 13. It's even more important to ensure, in the hullabaloo of excited comments after the cardplay ends, that cards don't get accidentally transferred from one hand to another.
Today's deals and notes are here.
Our game is posted online here shortly after the main game ends.
