Some excellent scores at the Lion on a very nice table. Steve chased Colin's 6K in the first, I enjoyed the second ;D, Ian went off the 10450 in the third. Steve played well to make it 3-1 to the Flag but then Jon pulled one back, opening with a steady 10550 (one break each in this game). Ian then overcame an out-of-form Turbo in the last to make it three all.
Flag still undefeated (somehow :D) and a very pleasant evening amongst friendly natives...

Unfortunate and out of order when that happens. Our league has a rule now that losers are not expected to buy winners a drink.
It's bad enough for a newbie to get slaughtered, without having to pay for the privilege.

Well out of order, especially in these times of recession.
I've seen this sort of thing manifest itself in other ways, there are a team locally who recently thrashed a lower division team and all chose an expensive bottled beer costing the same at least as a pint. >:(
This can rebound on them when word gets around - as other teams then give that 10% extra effort when playing them, to avoid a similar fate. ;)
