CSS Results for May 26 (Last Day of Regular Season)
« on: May 26, 2006, 01:44:02 PM »
What a thrilling finale to the regular CSS season we had today. Inspired by Richard Dawson, I decided to rotate the cube once more and give TRIPLE points/money today. Add to this that Plinko was played and that made for one VERY lucky player: heelsrule1988! Heels had the opportunity to double his already tripled scores. And that is exactly what he did, with a smashing $817 difference on a Chrysler Sebring convertible showcase worth a shade under $36K... giving him money in excess of $215,000!!!!!

RobertSearcy finished off the regular season with a DSW of $140, winning a LOT of points for his effort and over $160,000 as well.

Some very good bidding on the Splendido showcase (all three overbids were by less than $1000, and a chat bork claimed another victim of otherwise good bidding today), a few good bids and a few big garfs on the convertible (how much WAS that TV?) The PowerMac/monitor combo is at least $2800 (and quite possibly more as it's impossible to tell from the case what the speed of the processor on the CPU is).

If you didn't make the playoffs, don't despair. There will still be CSS for you; Jordanar18 is keeping the stats for it. For those of you in the playoffs, congratulations on a great season!

I don't know what to say. I am totally speechless. Everything fell into place today; the Plinko score exacta, the last-chance money... wow. I will ask this, though: did I set a one-day money record? I'd be willing to bet that I did.

Well, that was a great finish to the regular CSS season.

Too bad my DSW was too little too late (I woulda probably needed a QSW blitz at minimum, and not even sure if that would be enough).

As I said in the chat.......ya win some, ya lose some, and a few get rained out.  Also, close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and nuclear warfare.  :-P

I knew you could do it, Jordan.  From one North Carolinian to another, I rooted for you the whole way.  Some how or another I just knew you'd pull it off at the last second!
Life moves pretty fast; if you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it!

I thought heels' performance put him 7th in money, but he's 6th in money.  That would have set him up in a matchup with... ARMY!

EDIT:  Hang on a sec... (or 43,200)

NO!!! What an anti-climactic development! We were supposed to have the deathmatch to end all deathmatches in the CSS Finals. :-(

Nono...he says that Heels/Army would have happened if you were the 7 seed.  By going up to 6, you've avoided it...for now.  If we both get there, we'll meet in the finals (unless someone knocked me out of my 2 seed in points while I wasn't looking).

I'm the favorite? Who would've thought! I personally like the underdog role better, but hey, I'll still try my hardest to rip Armadillo apart. :-D

Yeah...he's the favorite?  I think both of us are a little disappointed in that...I like the favorite role myself.  :-D
