Now that you have read last month's article on the Thai Open, you are saying to yourselves: "Those pictures were cute..." (The one of my daughter and niece) "... or horrifying ..." (The ones with backgammon players) "... but did anyone actually play?"

I'm glad you asked! The following quiz features plays that came up during the Thai Open. And since this year happens to be the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic I've dubbed it the Thaitanic Quiz. In memory of the Titanic - but mainly because it is a round number - there are 100 points at stake. Think of them as lifeboats; grab as many as you can, or you will be bluer than Leonardo.

In each case Black is on roll. If cube actions are asked you will need to specify the proper action for each player.

1. Money Game - Cube actions?

2. Black leads 6-1 to 15, cube actions?

3. Black leads 11-9 to 15, cube actions?
