Online Dutch Open, Round 2
Another six-hand game, except the last one was a draw. The final scores were 12, 7, -7, and -12, so extremely close. Yet again, I managed to be third place at the table -- the second place player won the first hand self-draw, then proceeded to pay everybody else once. Still no luck with hands; there were at least three hands with no particular things to recommend them: not enough pairs, not enough of a suit, no chows, and not enough of a knitted hand (or rather, often, I would have 147 147 147, which doesn't count). Getting kicked off (not losing my internet connection, but getting kicked off MT) didn't really hurt my round 4 hand too much. Still 38th out of 52, although my tiebreak situation is slightly better.
