Self-injury

Hi all

Last weekend we had our not so succesful start in (qualifying for) the GNT. Greg found one of his other partners willing to fill the gap in our team, so I could play with Foster. After 48 boards (against team Meltzer) the margin exceeded the 80 IMP already. But it certainly didn’t feel that we got our asses whooped. They went down in a cold 5 while our teammates bid to the edgy slam, they missed a couple of reasonable games and had more difficulties with junior enthusiasm than I expected. I can state that the loss was mostly self inflicted.

Your name is Woolsey, you have been a world champion and your sitting East:

North opens 1 and Woolsey decided to overcall 1 (nothing special so far), this is passed out to North who reopens with a double. He raised himself to 2 and walked into my knife. Double!

Okay, so the penalty was only -100, my knife wasn’t that sharp. But I was looking for some IMP to pick up. Actually I’m glad I did, because our teammates went down two in 3 undoubled.
