CSS Results -- 9 May 2006
« on: May 09, 2006, 02:44:58 PM »
The West Wight Potter sailboat once again bankrupted more than half the field. Throw in an ornery bedroom/motorcycles showcase and six players wind up scoring points. Unfortunately, two players had a chance to double, and one came VERY close to quadrupling, but went over on said sailboat showcase. As for PriceFan985, he is inching closer to FPGWilly's win mark of 13.

ugh, what a bloodbath. I keep managing to either score a decent amount of points OR get a few dollars, not both. I will not complain today, though.  :pint:

Now watch me go over for the rest of the season. :-D

Nasty. Just nasty. Give me furniture and a car, and I'll do okay. Throw a boat in there, though, and I won't do okay.

I've absolutely stepped my game up since first-runs started.  Butter, peeps.

The boat killed 76% and the bikes killed 48%.  I can empathize with the latter, but you should all know the price of the boat by now.

You want nasty Heels?  How 'bout getting your score disqualified because you clicked the "sayto" function instead of the "pm" function?  THAT'S nasty.  :-\

(And yes, my bid on the boat was good enough to score points.  Mostly by accident because I can't add, but good enough.)

Lots of DOUBLE overbids today  too-- including by yours truly... all of you can dissertate all you want everytime there is a FRBS  with your snarky  " Everyone should know the price of X boat by now"-- well guess what? We don't.  Especially in SAILBOATS -- who can tell the F'ing things apart?   Those of us who can't ( which seems to be the normal majority of us ) just need to lowball more I reckon on the boats. :) heh

And as I found out, that's not only nasty, that's DUMB. Dumber than sticking a screwdriver into an electrical receptacle.

Like it woulda mattered to me, though......I was fixing to pull a $20,000-some bid on the bikes.
Everybody got to deviate from the norm.....

Isn't that a little harsh?  I mean, we're still trying to learn a new chatrooom...shouldn't there be some breaks cut this week?

I say give 'em their scores.

Here's an idea: listen to the names of the boats.  That always seems to work with me.

For the record, I did not solicit that response from Steve at all.  :-)

My only question is where it says the penalty for bidding aloud is a DQ, because I can't find it (and I did PM the same bid to Gator immediately after realizing the mistake).

I guess so...

PriceFanArmadillo, give me your bid again on #1, please?

(never mind, I found out it was $18,199.)

$18,199, so I was saved by an unintentional Mello.

I think he bid $18,225, because I remember being upset that his bid owned mine.
