Today's Bridge: It was a day full of sacrifices. I pulled off an early 3NT when every finesse worked, so our sacrifices were a bit more costly than theirs, but they went for a few contracts and got set as well, so we racked up a few hundred. Ken made a 3D with an overtrick, so when I had a fairly strong 1H hand with little distribution and he raised to 2H, I let it go. We were pushed up to 4H, which I missed by one. Had I raised protectively to 3H, we might have been left there. So when I had S x-x H K-Q-J-x-x D x-x C Q-x-x-x, Ken opened 1C, and Dan H. overcalled 1S, while I had to pass, I wanted to get in on the action. Dan C. bid 2D and Dan H. raised it to 3D, so I bid 3H, seeing no possibility in the defense. Dan C. doubled, but Ken left it, so I didn't try to correct to clubs. Ken had S A-Q-10-5 H 10-x D x-x C A-J-10-x-x, but both black kings were offside, so we lose those as well as three tricks in the red suits regardless of what suit is trump. (Ken is declarer in clubs, but the opponents have enough transportation in diamonds to establish the spade before he can set up the hearts.) 3H was a trick cheaper.

Today's Work: Version numbers are harder than they look.

I almost made a sort of early day of it today, but not by much. Maybe tomorrow will be even better.

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!")
