Bill.I have not rec'd a copy of your email and would appreciate it if you would forward me one. My understanding is that people, yourself included, were under the impression that no backgammon was played to determine the results. The fact that I mention that as being untrue, certainly is not intended to imply that you have deliberately mistated the facts. I have no doubt that you would never knowingly do that, and your integrity is not in question here as I would never doubt that. But here are the facts. I was watching the final game of the match between Jeff and Alfred, and then, after comiserating a bit with Alfred, walked over to watch what I expected to be a very interesting match between Jeff and Mike. As I got there they were just finishing their game and they got up and shook hands. I asked Jeff "What happened, big cube? He explained no, that they played a one point match for the trophy and split the cash. I think this is an important discussion, and perhaps from it we can clarify the rules for the future. But there is absolutely no question in my mind that a one point match was played, and that is an important point for this discussion, as there is a big difference between that and what everyone here thought took place.
