Re(2): Only 7 teams in Wednesday MC Doubles (matinee)?

They had to stop the game when no team #8 was available to play team #7, and team #1 took the court.

Not actually the case, although it may have seemed that way.

They knew - and announced in advance -that there would be 7 posts.

But I knew from my jai-alai programming that quickly adapting the odds displays and the rotation board would not be so easy.

However, they surprised me with the rotation board part. After a VERY short delay, they made an adjustment, resumed play, and it seemed to handle the rest of the game with 7 posts just fine.

Not bad, since my own rotation board can only handle regular Spec 7, Spec 9, and Citrus Straight 10. But all locked in with 8 posts. And it would take me a hell of a lot longer than 2 minutes to modify it.

Anyway looking ahead in the entries, the 7 post games appear to be permanent or maybe semi-permanent. Clearly it's a case of too small a roster to handle injuries with 16 players plus 2 subs req'd for every game.
