Good games Fred and thanks to @chetfor setting this up and to @Joe Bryant for donating the winner's prize. GL all in the knockouts.  

You’re in luck- all 4 of my grandparents were Irish immigrants. Guess what we do on 3/17 every year?

I managed to raise my galaxy rating from 1280 to 1468 last night. The computer scoring is totally confusing, I had matches with error ratings from 3 to 50! And of course the 50 rating was a match I won!

It seems the only time my galaxy rating goes up is when I win the game AND my error score is better than my opponent's was.  If I win the game but with a poorer error score, it gives/takes zero points.

The error thing is frustrating.  Sometimes I make red errors splitting checkers to try and make an opponent gamble when behind on pips.  I mean wtf is the point of taking the 4 point if all the guy has to do is wait and run on you?

I'm convinced @culdeus is afraid to play me, likely intimidated by my reputation in the international backgammon community.  Still hasn't even opened my private message.

 

Basically.  Sorry got busy over weekend.  The idea is we do it in this week right?

You guys are the last Round 3 game, after that chet will post round 4 matchups.  There are no specific deadlines, just play when you guys can do it.

Oh, I got confused last week in that is showed things as "weeks" so that's what drove my "calendar week" question.  I was somewhat putting it off to get a little more practice playing this damn fast (and sober).  It's not helping.

I have round 4 and 5 matchups done.  LMK if anyone would like me to post them.  I had to get a little creative in Round 5 to ensure there weren't any repeat matchups.

Top of the hour?

To find the game, use the filter tool to search for 5-point games with casual timing and then look for FBGCM

How is this done?  do I have to wait for C to accept? 

Yes--then we can watch the match.  Or we can search for one of your player names.

I see the game posted.  If culdeus doesn't show, I will play if you want -- not counting toward the official tournament obviously.  LMK  I am a little toasty though.  :lol:

OK - My game is out there. I'm fighting off suitors waiting for C.  I saw he started a game and tried to join, but it timed out.

Round 4 - nys sneaks past johnnycakes 5-3. He needed two dice 3 or higher on his last roll to win, and couldn't get it.

The match was a lot closer than 5-3 would suggest.   I'm hoping for my first win when I get to play @ragincajun.  Looks like he's the doormat of the league.
