Battle of the GammonVillage Writers: Sax vs. Rice

When I suggested to "Stick" Rice that he come out to L.A. to compete in the Los Angeles Open and Super 32, run by Patrick Gibson of Gammon Associates, I knew there was a good chance I would have to play him at some point in the tournament. This would especially be true if I fared well, as Stick has had quite a successful career in his three short years on the ABT.

Stick managed to maneuver his way past "MCG" (Matt Cohn-Geier) in the first round and after a 2nd round victory, he found himself facing another Gammon Village feature columnist, yours truly. I had very good dice in my first two matches, giving up only 4 points in total in two thirteen point matches, but I had only beaten Stick once in my previous four attempts. MCG was kind enough to record the match, and while the match started fairly late on Friday evening and we were both tired, we tried our best not to embarrass ourselves.
