The 20th Rising Sun Synchron-Skat Tournament

The twentieth Rising Sun Synchron-Skat Tournament was held on Sunday January 21st 2007. This was the first time we had held a Rising Sun event on a Sunday – the idea was to encourage players who are not able to play on Saturdays.

There were nineteen entrants, not counting the organiser, Noel Leaver. These included two newcomers, Jackie Damant and Thomas Altebäumer, from Oxford; and six players from Denmark, of whom Gudrun Christiansen and Børge Jakobsen were also newcomers.

For the first session, Chris Beesley agreed to withdraw, leaving eighteen players who played eighteen boards as six tables of three. For the other three sessions, Chris and Noel both joined in, so we played as five tables of four, with twenty, sixteen, and sixteen boards. We played fewer boards than usual, to allow players time to catch their trains home.

The winner was John McLeod.

Hand details, thanks to Patrick Phair.

The winners received prizes of whisky, wine, rum, chocolates, chocolates, and chocolates.
