WTG Kathryn at SABA!

May 3, 2022|

The “45th” round 3: won by Kathryn from Hossein. The score sheet is interesting. Hossein raced away 8-0 to 11 in 3 games. Kathryn fought back 2,4,8 and suddenly the score was 9-9 to 11. With the cube on 2, Kathryn won an amazing last game from behind [Hossein will tell you he was 27 points ahead!]. Well done Kathryn, well played.
