Lisa and I spent part of the evening playing four hands of canasta. I won the first 2, giving me a total of 8255; well over the 7500 winning threshold. I managed to keep Lisa's scores low, which was just as well as she also finished past the threshold with 7960 points. That made the series level at three games each.
In the first hand of the new game Lisa played exceedingly well to amass 1765 points to my -220!
I won the next game scoring 1370 (giving me a total of 1150) and limiting Lisa's to 380 (total: 2145).
A fun evening with some good strategy from both of us.
