4-4 Correct Play

I made play No. 3...I hit and put a checker on the 7 point for a cover.  Not the best play here as you can see from the ExtremeGammon xg mini-rollout below.  By the way, I got lucky and won the match...not an easy thing to do against a great player like Dave, especially if you make some wrong plays. 

An interesting aside.  Because David lost to me he was now out of the tournament and instead of just sitting around doing nothing, he sat down with Scott Casty who was waiting for his finals match in the tournament.  David showed Scott some positions and gave him some insights into various opening move responses and the theory behind them.

An hour later Scott won the tournament.  Talk about being gracious in defeat!
