provisionally 77.59% in the free weekend survivor. None below average, only 2 under 60%.

Not nearly as good day 2 in the NABC robot individual practice. Started out with what should have been a super board, but only 58% provisionally. The same LHO must have been defending at many tables. Auction is 4S by CHO, float. RHO (opening leader) cashes the heart A and shifts to the club 7. J842 in dummy. LHO has AKQ10x, and decides to play the x, CHO's stiff 9 winning. Or maybe the other tables made 6 when RHO didn't play a club at trick 2 or even didn't start with the heart A. Still, something was strange.

I could have had a monster game had I done everything right, but most of my decisions were reasonable (except that maybe you should realize a good game is irrelevant, so take off-percentage actions hoping to strike magic.)

I tried to sign up to Day 1 and it had already passed, even though it was still Saturday. Shame.

All winners were by at least 10 imps. oirg + 17.75; SW49 by +34.99, and me by 15 in the 2-way with procrastinator.

I reissued them all.

NN wins one group challenge with +16.00. oirg wins the other with =21.50. procrastinator wins the 2-way by 17.

I reissued them all, with AA out in the SW49 challenge.

I did pick up a win, in a 16 board challenge against a robot, by 48. Very strange. I thought I had probably lost. I had only one board that I thought would be a clear pickup IRL, when RHO bid an idiotic slam, and against bots I figured I probably lost on it, since I cashed the setting trick (at risk it was making if I didn't cash, but in fact I set it only one when the alternative defense sets in at least 2, probably more.

No, it's attached, and it was a big pickup. I thought my hand was a clear-cut opening bid, but bot passed it and opps rested in 3NT.

And another expected to be unfortunate one. I missed an excellent 6 slam (cold on a non-spade lead; on a spade lead it requires a finesse, with opening bidder holding the heart K). To miss the slam, I lied in my Blackwood response. The heart K was onside. In fact, it was an good 7 slam, making 7 if the heart is onside.

Still, I expected a push. (I intentionally lied in response to Blackwood because after belatedly reading system notes, I realized CHO might well be expecting more for my previous bid.) No, bot with my cards stopped in 4.

Then this one. An absolute disaster IRL, as surely you would expect the other table to reach the frigid 4 game. Instead, I thought I might have been too aggressive to reach 4 , down 2. Can you believe CHO's bidding?

Still, I figured my bot counterpart might also end up in spades, going down, so this wasn't necessarily a disaster. In fact, I won 3 imps. Exactly the same auction, and he went down 3.
