October Surprises

The October Newsletter is now up.  This month's Newsletter is 13 pages long!  Lots of good stuff.  Make sure to check it out.

Also, the World Bridge Series is underway in Philadelphia.  Bulletins for each day can be found at http://www.worldbridge.org/tourn/Philadelphia.10/Bulletins.htm.  Also, check for blog posts by Ken Rexford as he posts his thoughts at http://www.cuebiddingatbridge.blogspot.com/, which is a "feed" to this site and can be found in the "articles" listing.

In today's WBS Bulletin, you can see that Laurie and John Kranyak, of Cleveland, friends of some Lima DBC players and perhaps known to many others, ar leading the World Mixed Pairs after one day by a whopping 66%, second being currently at 61%!  Go Ohio State!

Depends on Who You Play Against

Bob and Tom had a 94% game on the last Thursday of September, EXCEPT when they met Jan and Leah.  Jan and Leah ended up with four tops and one average, reducing Bob and Tom to the paltry score of 77%.  On the other hand, Jan and Leah had a 90% game against Bob and Tom but were unable to score better than a total of 50% for the event, meaning that the same field that Bob and Tom beat up ended up beating up Jan and Leah mercilessly.

Not sure what to read into this development.
