We can't do everyone's jobs all the time

Today's Bridge: Dan and I teamed up again, and it was mostly a series of triumphs for Precision bidding. I started with a 4H pre-empt that was a bit of a stretch at S A-K-x H K-Q-10-9-8-x-x D x C x-x, but I saw no reason to cut corners and ended up off one. We hit 3NT after that, and I should have raised to 3NT in the next hand, but forgot my point count and was a bit shy with Q-x in diamonds. The defense was kind and we made 6. I stuck Dan in 4H with a Moysian fit in the next hand - we were probably short of power, but I had 3-5-5 shape with a void in his spades and all of my power in Diamonds. We finally finished the rubber with 2S in the next hand, and then went for a gross sacrifice 2S in the hand after that. I was hoping one of the opponents would brave 3D, but they left us to it.

Today's Work: We've officially run out of things to do, once the people running our repository get it up and running again so we can finish the last of what we had. That's not to say we'll be idle - we just have to do administrative stuff, which also badly needs to be done. It'll be a relief to spend some time on it.

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!")
