CSS Results for October 9
« on: October 09, 2006, 01:58:28 PM »
Today began the week with a perfect half-and-half.* Not only did I score 3/6 in GRECO, but of the large 28 player field for CSS, half of you received points, and half of you did not. With only one exception, these overbids (and in one case, a chat bork), involved the Cadillac showcase, with some overbids being fairly slight and some (like mine) being quite ridiculous.

The problem, I think, other than the blindness induced by "A NEW CADILLAC!!" being announced, was that Rich announced it as a CTS V6 VVT. This car has a base price of about $30K and had a decent set of options on it. There is also a Cadillac model CTS-V, which starts at $50K, which is where I went wrong. Of course, who can really figure out these car models anyway?

Gatorman walks away a winner of points today. Robair takes the money for the Sebring showcase, and dm misses a DSW by $8 but gets the money for the Cadillac.

Today would have been a good day to bid the same on both showcases.

*half-and-half is also nice to put in your coffee as you sit after a nice big dinner if you're celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada.

Evil furniture/car combo! I hate those, especially when the car is something big, like a Cadillac. No worries; I'm still 3-2 over Armadillo this season. :-)

When I heard the "42" in SC2's ARP, I was hoping it would be 9xx for a DSW.....and when he said 413.....


Or, to put it in Joe Capitano's words to describe Hans after today's Cliffy playing.......

Man, I did HORRIBLE today - an overbid combined with a big-time garf!  Not a good way to get my chat season off to a good start.

Oh well, now that I've worked the kinks out, I'm ready for next time

Both Mackeys moneyed. Who knew?
We'll think of a signature. Don't worry.

Very courageous bid by Robair on that first showcase! You don't figure the two showcases to ever be that close together in price at that level... both over $40K and within $1000 of each other's price.
