Saturday’s tournament settled by the tiebreaker formula

Ten players showed up at our Saturday, Oct. 19, cribbage tournament so we got to play everyone else just once.

Ron Morgan and Doug Rodrigues (me) had a photo finish for first and second place with Ron edging me out by a few spread points. Both ended up with 14 game points earned with six wins on their respective scorecard, but Ron had a spread of 89 points and I only 65 points. Janet Miller took third place with a 13/6 scorecard.

Susan Terry is still in first place overall in this season with 74 points, but Brad Archer has closed the gap with 57 points, having scored 12 points in today’s tournament. Morgan has 41 points, Jan Cook has 32 and Darlene Pekovich has 26.

There were only two 24-hands dealt on the day, one to Archer and the other to Clyde Terry. Clyde got the last one to win the 24-Hand Pot.

We have now rolled over the 4-of-a-Kind Pot for three consecutive weeks, which is really unusual. Fifty cents per player is put into the 4-of-a-Kind Pot each week and it has grown to $16 so it is “ripe for the taking.”

The Graeagle Peggers Grassroots Cribbage Club meets at Gumba’s Family Pizza in Blairsden every Saturday for a nine-game tournament. Check-in is at 10:45 a.m. and play begins at 11 a.m. The American Cribbage Congress sanctions the tournaments that qualify when we field enough contestants each week.

For more information or questions, contact me, Doug Rodrigues, the club’s director at 836-4254. Players of all skill levels are welcome!
