The 11th Rising Sun Synchron-Skat Tournament
The eleventh Rising Sun Synchron-Skat Tournament was held on Saturday October 1st 2005.

There were initially eighteen entrants. After one session, one of them had to leave, so the organiser Nick Wedd joined in to make up the numbers. After the second session, another left, but two newcomers arrived and played in the last two sessions. So there were eighteen players for each session, playing as six tables of three.

The first three sessions were each twenty-one boards, the fourth was eighteen boards.

Errors
Patrick Phair found that, as well as several small errors by the players, there was a large one by the organiser, Nick Wedd. He had entered Jonathan Norris's score for session three as 450 when it was clearly written as 922.

The other errors, made by the players, also had their effects, and below are the first four places, before and after error correction:
Code: Select all
Place   Original           Corrected
1st   Bernard Forster     Michael Wachowiak
2nd   David Parlett       Jonathan Norris
3rd   Michael Wachowiak   David Parlett
4th   Patrick Cherlet     Bernard Forster


The winners pictured here received prizes of wine, Laphroaig malt whisky, chocolates, and licorice allsorts.
