Thanks, @MMike

It was bitter-sweet this evening in our fortune-deciding World Team Carcassonne Online Championships match against Brazil.
I drew Melvin Quaresma, current World No.2 in the singles championship, so was rather trepidatious.
However, I won the first of the best-of-three duel :D . However, he won the next game so it went to a decider.
It didn't start well for me; he got what I consider the perfect starting tile, a straight city extender with pennant, and I just couldn't do anything particularly useful so he gradually pulled ahead to where I couldn't recover from and he won the duel.
The rest of our 5 players for this match were evenly matched with 2 duels won per team, so that's the UK out of this year's World Team Championships  :'(
On the plus side, we've had a great experience and lots of fun, so we've just got to prepare ourselves for the European Team Championships hopefully later this year.
Never too old to learn new tricks

No you're not; our loss meant that Spain qualified instead of us! >:D

The galling thing about the result is that we beat both of the top two teams of our group, China and RCP!
