92 9/1/2021 6:18:00 AM Turn 1 Steve Message Didn't play in the 2nd round of the tournament. Wasn't interested in doing so. Probably get in the next round. As for being on a hot streak, it just happens and you need to take advantage of it. It off-sets when you are in a losing streak!!!!
91 8/30/2021 7:18:00 AM Turn 1 Don Message Thanks ... I should stop being surprised by this game, but I never am. So how are you doing in the tournament? Are you as potent there as you are against me?
90 8/30/2021 6:41:00 AM Turn 1 Steve Message How about a new game. If you are tired of getting beat as the Germans you can be the Allies. It seems that none of our games are anywhere close. Maybe the next one will.

Message from Don:
It seems there is just no stopping you. We can: 1. continue and I can hope for another complete turn around by the dice as I pursue a 1 % chance to hold on at this stage, or 2. you can figure your time is better spent with a new game, or 3. you can decide I am incapable of giving you a contest and pursue other pursuits. I leave it to you.

64 8/23/2021 9:05:00 AM Turn 1 Don Message maybe so, but after losing six straight negative attacks - five of them by wide margins - and all of them important - I didn't see where I had much choice. The game was all but lost without a change of fortune and waiting availed me nothing. You could easily retake the Advantage with the trifecta anyway and still conduct a Double Impulse vs Caen. Best to use it while I could still hope to get something for it.

It's too bad. Your early contest of Caen was appearing as if this might be an interesting game as you had problems elsewhere - but all of them were solved by winning six negative attacks in a row.

Like I said, I don't see where I had much choice at that point. Given the same situation, I'd do it again.

Message from Don:
Well, if you can win six negative attacks in a row, why not seven?

In all seriousness, my situation looks pretty bleak unless I get a break soon, so you might as well have the advantage back now as later. Rerolling your last assault in hopes of some relief:

22 attacks into 50 @ 7:8 - Allied rolls first
57 8/22/2021 8:31:00 AM Turn 1 Don Message Actually six straight if you count my failed bombardments ... amazing. Almost as feckless a German defense as Biden's withdrawal. What a country!
56 8/22/2021 8:29:00 AM Turn 1 Don Message Our lop-sided curse continues ... four straight negative attacks - all of them significant or vital - and all of them won - three by 4 or more.

Message from Steve:
Like I said, I rarely use the Advantage unless it is necessary. Like the last 2 times I used it. As the Allies, I only use it in case of Omaha/Sword debacles, overcast on either the 6 or 7. As the Germans, vary rare. Now, if I had gotten good drs the 1st time I attacked into Caen, I wouldn't needed to use the Advantage!!!

I probably wouldn't have attack into Caen @ 9:11. The chances of me staying in Caen went from 31.9% (9:10) to 44.13% (9:11).

Now, for the Allies move:

27 8/16/2021 11:06:00 AM Turn 1 Don Message For someone who disdains use of the Advantage you've suddenly grown quite fond of its early use. Would you still have made the attack at 9:11?
26 8/16/2021 11:01:00 AM Turn 1 Don Message yes ... the 9-10 into Caen in the previous game was a good gamble because my board situation was so dire that you had plenty to hurt me further without needing the Canadians to do it. This time, the decision was not so clear cut. The move is not necessarily a bad one - indeed a good gamble given the great rewards - made easier by your great rolls on the 2nd try.

Had you cleared Sword again I would not have given you the 9-10 again, but would have kept the Flak behind to bolster Caen. I decided it was better to give you the gamble again then leave myself open in 16 - and I still feel that way despite the result. My board position elsewhere is no where near as bad as it was in the former game, and I still hold out hope for a successful defense in this game. We will see.

Message from Steve:
My attack into Caen last game was not such a gamble. The invasion had you on the ropes and I went for the kill. This time, I'm going to do the same. I'm behind in this game and I have to do something to reverse the trend. This might be another short game.

I almost asked you about Omaha with the CA defending, it's fine with me that you didn't defend with the CA.

So, now for the important attack

AG0: Juno App
3CA/7,8,9 to 17,10 & attack @ 9:10 - and yes, if I lost this dr will use the Advantage
21 8/15/2021 1:36:00 PM Turn 1 Don Message Well, that's a mite better ... but still not without its possibilities.

31: CA & 914 spent

8: 736 voluntary retreat to 10

30: 726 retreats to 29

Regards the latter, as I've told you several times in the past, when I have 3 or more fresh units on Omaha I prefer to make the infantry the PD so as to protect the CA. I presume you will allow me the courtesy of doing so again here.

I've noticed that you prefer to leave a unit behind in your first wave attacks on Omaha and Sword. You are not alone in this practice but it is a tactic I almost never employ - preferring a maximum strength 1st wave. Care to opine on the advantage of your approach and teach me the error of my ways?

Your 9:10 on Caen is still available to you again in this game. I thought it was somewhat foolish of you to engage in such an unnecessary risk given your board situation in the last game. Upon reflection, it was probably a good move since you had little to lose even if repulsed - given the board situation at the time.

The question is whether it is still a good option for you in this game situation. I briefly entertained the idea of refraining from the usual 21Pak & Flak first impulse to 16 by holding back the flak unit to protect Caen, but ultimately decided given the board situation that was the worse of the two options.

Fascinating that even after hundreds of games I still encounter these new decisions. I can't want to see what you do this time.
