The all-important net spread points in cribbage games

At our Saturday, Sept. 21 weekly cribbage tournament we had eight players, which included a visitor from San Jose, John Petrin.

First place went to Darlene Pekovich with a nice 14 game points and seven wins out of nine games posted on the day. Janet Miller took second with 10 points and five wins with a spread of  plus 11 points, which is important because Keith Nelson also had a 10/5 scorecard but lost the tiebreaker with a spread of minus 26 points tallied throughout the day putting him in third place. Keith got the only 24-hand to win the 24-Hand Pot. There were three 4-of-a-kind hands: two held by me and the other one by Darlene. We two cut for high card and, even though I had two chances Darlene cut a king to win the 4-of-a-Kind Pot. Our thanks to Larry at the Graeagle Frosty for hosting the club this week!

  Meanwhile, Ron Morgan (impressively ranked 18th in the country for all-time tournament points) and I (our grassroots’ club champion the last two years) both posted measly 9/4 cards and appear to be in a slump. Ron joined the Graeagle Peggers this year as a transfer from the Reno club so that is why he is no longer mentioned as a visitor (they are members of another grassroots club and our guests are crib players not affiliated with a club). Welcome Ron!

The Graeagle Peggers Grassroots Cribbage Club meets at Gumba’s Pizza in Blairsden every Saturday for a 9-game tournament. Check-in is at 10:45 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!
