California Open is on twitter!
This year we're experimenting with crowd-sourcing color commentary for the event. Players who are on twitter are asked to tweet about the event and include the #caliopen hashtag. Follow @CaliOpen to see how it goes.

I wish I was playing :(

Phoenix
I just dropped off my registration for Phoenix in the mail, extending the Scrabble streak to six weekends (yikes!).

Is anyone looking for a roommate or wouldn't mind a third? Floor space is fine with me.

speedy registration
Just an observation...

8:06am PST: I get my 2009 NSC Registration Confirmation email
8:08am PST: The Entrants list for the NSC is updated on cross-tables with my name on it.

Not super excited about the location but looking forward to 31 challenging games.

Oakland airport must get a lot of Scrabblers...
On my way to Portland for the OT, I have to take out the SamTimer to show the security folks...

Security guy: "Is this for Scrabble or chess?"

Wonder if we'll ever see ads like that in this country.

duh
I haven't shared in a while so here.


I just finished doing Today's 6s on Aerolith.  I missed finding the 6 in the alphagram EFFORT.  I tried TOFFER* and thought of FORFET*.

*sigh*

ouch...
yesterday i tripped on the curb at Fillmore and California and fell. hard. in broad daylight with lots of people around. including XP. and a hot girl (who gave me bandages, but not her number).

but the part that hurts the most, even more than my scraped knee...


I will get back to posting games soon.

not again!
bad:  dealing with scrabble burnout

good:  playing no scrabble for a week and getting over burnout

bad:  feeling rusty before a big tournament
good:  Vegas airport has free wi-fi

bad:  The aircraft for my flight back to SFO has "severe" maintenance issues.. Not sure if I can get home tonight.

If I have to miss  *another* tournament due to air travel delays....

If you have a Facebook and/or Myspace account (or a Friendster account -- gasp!), you might get a good laugh out of this:

Not a good month of tournament Scrabble -- 2-4 at both of the one-days.  Hopefully May will be better.

san jose april08 game 1 vs. Almond Guts
Another new venue for the South Bay tournament.  Director Bennett scoops me up from BART and we're off to the Round Table (the largest in the county).  It's a nice space.  I like having lots of light and space to spread out.  Plus, free wi-fi!  Div1 is not as strong as usual.  Not sure why, was thinking it was because of the Passover holiday, but I don't think that's it.  I load up on greens from the salad bar and play...

berkeley april08 game 5 vs. Inky Creme
this is the story of a game of scrabble:

after turn 1:  I'm down 20
after turn 12:  I'm down 26
after turn 24 (points on my rack added to his score):  I'm down 303 (!)
the end.

Well played, Capt. O.
