Yesterday's Bridge: Nathan joined us, and partnered with me against the Dans. He opened 1NT with a singleton ace of hearts, but I had six spades to his four, so we found a game where slam might well have been laydown. The opponents made two partscores, and we set a 1NT. There was another heart trick available, but seven was all we really needed. Finally, I declared 3NT with S A-x-x H K-J-10-x D A-x C K-J-10-x facing S K-x-x H A-x D Q-x-x-x C A-9-x-x. With that kind of power, I'd be thinking of slam, but we got lucky. The opening heart lead felled the queen, and when I cashed the king of clubs, the queen fell on that as well. I tried a diamond to the queen, which also won, so I claimed nine more tricks and conceded the final spade. The slam requires three finesses, and they all just happened to work.

Yesterday's Work: I think I solved the biggest problem we're still aware of that's likely to happen in the field. It was kind of an accident, but I noticed something and went with it, and it paid off. There's one more problem that's really bothering me, but there's little I can do about it unless it comes up again, such as during testing.

Obviously, I've been pretty busy so far this weekend, but most of it was Breath of the Wild. I'm nearing the endgame, and I could go fight Ganon whenever I feel like it, but I know there's a lot more stuff to do first, and I intend to do as much of it as I can first.

Signature

Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
