I would like to begin to accumulate screen shots of extraordinary games or hands to highlight on our awards page.
If you have a perfect game, boston or awesome hand, please screen shot it. If you don't know how to screen shot, ask the TD in IM to screen shot your hand or game for you.
Some may not know the definitions of the events. Below is a quick summary.
Perfect Game - A completed game with no bags, no sets and no busted nils. In other words, perfect bidding. I suppose it is possible to play a perfect game and still lose but generally that is not the case.
Boston - When an individual or team captures all 13 tricks. Some say it is only a Boston when you bid 13 and capture 13. For league purposes, we'll say it is a Boston if an individual or team captures 13 tricks. It's awesome no matter what you call it, especially when one individual does it.
Awesome Hands - There is some leeway in this one but the hand should have 8 or more spades with a trick count of 8-12 for the individual. You can screen shot the hand before you play it or screen shot Last Hand after the hand has been played but BEFORE the next hand ends.
To be listed on the awards page, a screen shot is required. If no screen shot is available, at least 2 staff members must verify your accomplishment.
If you have any questions, contact me.
