WRGPT

I've just doubled up. Unfortunately the scores get wiped later today because it's only the practice round. Ah well. Mind you, if it were not the practice round I probably wouldn't have pitched in $4000 to stay in with only a pair of 2s (A2 to match a board of K42). I won it because the last card out was also a 2.

PS. I took the keyboard apart (it has about two dozen screws — I kept having to go back to look for more when I couldn't get the lid off). I cleaned the contacts. I put it back together again. And verily it now works. It is probably lucky for me that it was a relatively cheap one (cost me about 200 quid back in the day but it would probably be a third of that now for a better model) because that meant the switches were just the same kind of rubbery things you find inside a calculator or mobile phone. Lift it off, clean the bottom of the rubbery thing and the top of the circuit board, put it back on, and Bob's your uncle.
