In the box playing Red was the Tempestuous Turk (TT). Minus 20 on the scoresheet and having a bad night, he finally thought his time had come when playing against The Doyen and myself. We had been doubled early and then got involved in a massive back-game. At the height of this game we had made our 1, 2 and 3-points with an extra man on the 2-point, and our other 8 men were in or around TT's home board.
