Regular readers know that I'm fairly unbiased on this blog, in terms of including lots of hands I messed up, etc., right? I hope this gives me license to publicize the following. Last night I substantially broke my previous record in a (12-board) robot duplicate, scoring 77.1%. I resolved not to play for a while, since my next effort would surely disappoint, right? Well, but I couldn't resist a game today, and as predicted I couldn't live up to last night, scoring 74.8%, my second-best score ever. :-) Yay, 2.4 masterpoints. Now I really shouldn't play for a while.
Good luck to everyone in Philly...I'm not going, have to get back to work.
In "real life" I'm an associate professor in economics at the Kellogg school (Northwestern), specializing in game theory. In my other life, I spend way too much time with bridge hands swirling in my brain -- maybe this outlet will help cure my condition! I hope you enjoy.
