At our Saturday, Nov. 16, cribbage tournament, we had 11 players including one guest, Mike Nesbit, from Quincy.
Susan Terry from Graeagle took first place with a nice 16 game points and seven wins on her scorecard while Dave Boynton from Quincy came in a distant second with just 12 points off of six wins.
Four other players, all with 10/5 scorecards, vied for third place: Steve Frank from Plumas Pines, Lee Davis from Quincy, Doug Hart from Blairsden and Clyde Terry, also from Plumas Pines. As you may recall, the first tiebreaker is the net point spread and Steve had the highest spread with a plus-29.
Susan is now back in first place in the club standings with 90 game points. Brad Archer from Reno didn’t play so he is now in second place with 82 game points.
There were three 4-of-a-kind hands held by Ron Morgan and Lee Davis (Lee got two) so the two cut the deck for the highest card to determine the winner. Ron cut a two while Lee cut a seven to win the 4-of-a-Kind Pot. There were only two 24-hands posted for the day and both were by Clyde Terry so she walked away with the 24-Hand Pot.
