With very favorable dice, Chet takes Culdeus down 5-0.

I didn't really find them all that favorable.  I think I just got way too fast and loose with the back checkers and got myself trapped going for a wall.  I need to read a lot more how to actually play

I highly recommend this book by Marc Olsen who's one of the founders of BG Galaxy and a super nice guy.

Won 5-0 just steam rolling with dice. Rolled double sixes three times in a row in the final game.  Fun when it's going your way but it sucks when it happens against you. Sorry gb.

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.

Kard wins 7-0, but the story of the match was doubles on top of doubles on top of doubles for me.  BG loved our play - both had error rates sub 10.  Luck factor went 1.52 vs. 0.62 and that played a huge "roll" (pun very intended).

If i never hear the words "I probably shouldn't accept but I feel like doubles are coming" again it will still be two times too many today

Looks like I meet @chet for the semis. We've played 3 different 25 point matches for a buck a point in the last couple of weeks. Chet is up $2...

And i've already burned through those winnings.

Early next week for our match?
