CSS Results -- 15 May 2006
« on: May 15, 2006, 02:38:05 PM »
WARNING: Them trips is creepy.

Very few would have thought a New York/Bahamas/China package would be worth a mere $15,000, but four thought so, and one thought even lower than that. As a result, these four doubled and received double the point value, in addition to over $44,000. As for your host, he couldn't cash in on a remarkable bid on the Pacifica showcase.

Wow. I thought a lot of us DSW'd, but it was just 3 of us and Stage Player.

I'd love to see how many other times it's happened when the only point-scorers all doubled....
Everybody got to deviate from the norm.....

I'd had enough of that 3-way tie for the DSW lead. ;-)

I was planning to garf these first two days at least completely and I was burned on multi trips last time.. and very happy i backed out of 15555 :)

Even though no money for me.. very glad for those dbl points to keep my playoff spot safe hopefully :) ]

 My garf on pacifica was clueless -- I had nO idea if that was a cheapo ( vibe ish ) .. medium ( a malibu-deluxe ish ) .. or kind of exp  ( a fancy Impala) -- so I lowballed grandly ( obviously ) to try to make sure i didnt have a  THIRD Over in a row.. whew.

 Good luck again tomororw morning everyone :)

You know, extremely tough showcases like the one with the trips is not what I need. I've got 2 1/2 weeks to get some money to get into the playoffs, and I'm certainly not going to do it with a Showcase of Death like that. On top of that, that Jordan scored a nice amount of money, so this Jordan has yet another person to climb past if he wants to make the playoffs.

About those trips........Good God Almighty, what a trainwreck.

*That* was a Talladega-style big one in the CSS.

heels, I'm in the same boat as you.  I have to make up a lot of ground in a little time.  That's what I get for doing a lot of blind bidding early in the season.

Anyway, are any of you cellar-dwellers interested in creating a "kiddie table" bracket after the field is set?  Message me and I will whip together something.

Haha, not me. I either make it to the big time, or nothing at all. Speaking of making brackets, though, Gatorman told me I could make the bracket for the CSS Playoffs, so here it is.

Hope my name will be on that bracket. :-)
