End of Day 2 – 11 matches played; 12 more to go

So the round robin is almost half way over. We have to pull up our socks. The boys lost another close one by 7 imps. I don’t know any of the hands, but I do know we now have 163 VP’s from a total possible of 275.

This is clearly below the targeted average needed to make it into the playoffs. At this point, no one really cares if they come in 1st or 8th – since the KO portion is like a brand new event.

Only 8 teams will be in the knockout portion. Instead of playing short ten board matches against your opponents, you play at least 64 boards per match.

The current leaderboard sees many changes throughout the day – in our case, we free fell from 3rd down to 14th or so. Others like L’Ecuyer have moved up into contention, and others still – like Rayner, Todd, Marcinski, Steinberg etc. seem to have been near the top since the beginning.

Funny how there is less to say when the results aren’t good. Hopefully I will have good reason to be ebullient tomorrow.
