I saw David Todd lose his first round match in Cannes today with an incredible sequence from his opponent. David led 13-12/15 and the opponent doubled him -- we all thought it no double/take. The opponent held David's 5 pt; David held the opponent's 1 pt and bar point, I believe. (the match was recorded so David has the exact position.) No one anticipated such a crazy sequence so we didn't mentally note the exact position. Anyway, seemed a very easy take with limited gammon chances for the opponent. This is the opponent's sequence following the cube:
Dbl, 4-4, 4-4, 6-4, 6-2, 6-3, 5-5, 5-5, 5-5, 6-3, 3-3, 6-6
Seven pair in eleven rolls. David rolled as bad as the opponent did well and was gammoned for the match with never having been hit after the cube. It's why we love the game.
