In Response To: Denmark vs The World Final (Seth)
There were some decisions which surprised me so I am very curious to see the PRs. Some of the interesting plays included:
Denmark rolled a 31 from the bar which was used to build a 4-prime. Here I would have hit at the score.
Denmark recubed with 3 guys behind a 5-prime and none of them at the edge. I didn't see the marketlosers so I hated the recube like a couple of the Danish players.
The World played safe with a 52 which could have built a 6-prime. I would have made the prime and as would Petko as far as I remember.
There were some containment plays which I was not sure about.
All in all a truly amazing final game which unfortunately went the world's way. I would have liked to have seen some more backgammon and to have heard some more discussions.
I found the team dynamics on the Danish team to be a bit different from last year. I think it made a difference that Gus was not in the team. I somehow don't think Denmark would have spent 10 minutes on the recube if Gus had been at the table, I think he would have made an "executive decision" before the 10 minutes we spent, but this is of course only speculation on my part.
