Today Houston Regionals starts at 2.30 pm central.
Whole week I am playing with Richard Pavlicek. Wednesday our very own Phil Clayton will join us for teams partnering with Ira Chorush.
Also I am so happy that I will finally meet Justin Lall in person, he is coming too.
I think we will have fun, wish me luck people! :)

Great team, no wonder Justin didn't make the cut!

Richard and me at "outback steak house" after playing a % 56 single session, finishing 1st in our section and direction but not good overall.

Thanks! I am indeed having fun.

We won today's 2 session MP event as well. It was not big score like yesterday but %59.86 and %59.80 was enough to be 1st overall.

I know this is getting boring for you guys but......WE DID IT AGAIN! We won today again!! Thanks to Phil Clayton and Ira Chorush, they played great! 4 days on row!!

http://live.acbl.org.../011A/2/summary

But I have to say "Thank You" to both Justin Lall and Brad Moss. In one auction Richard asked aces, and I responded 5 (0-3) and Richard decided not to bid slam when our trump was hearts but he forgot to correct my 5 to 5 and passed but immediately saw his mistake...Justin and Brad told him that he can correct it and that is not how way they want to win a match. They are such cool people both as personality and a player at the table.

Seeing people like this, at the times where real cheaters have the nerves to come back and play at events as if nothing happened, with CAS or court decisions, gives me hope.

As it turned out, Timo and Richard broke the record for the most points ever won at the Houston regional with 189.

They were 20 points short of Meckwell + Lwvin/Weinsteins/Helms record of 210 a few years ago at Gatlinberg (I think).
