My husband and I had a fantastic time! Dean and Denise are the best! They were very generous and kind. I hope some of you will come up to our place in PSL someday soon. Great games and excellent food. And I always enjoy seeing and playing against the greatest players in the Southeast (and beyond!).

Congratulations to Carlos! And good luck in college this year, Atticus. See you again soon.

That's the irony of some of the 3 strikes events. You sometimes do well on games you think you will be terrible at or have never played, and tank on games you have played your whole life :)

Yep.  Atticus was catching a bit of questioning from some folks after getting 2 strikes right off the bat.  I think it became clear that a bad start wasn't going to affect him :)
