We welcomed 15 players to our April 15th tournament and played four sessions of 18 boards. The hands were dealt at the table and seating arranged so that no-one played against the same player in different rounds.
Unlike Novemberís non-synchron tournament which was completely dominated by Patrick Phair, this one was very close with 5 players scoring over 2000, and just 12pts separating the top three. The organiser Mike Tobias, won with 2162 pts, and in the best traditions of the BSkA, chose to forgo the prize which instead went to Mark Dunn (2151).
|Glory only||Mike Tobias||2162|
|1st Prize||Mark Dunn||2151|
|2nd Prize||Stan Suchy||2150|
|3rd Prize||Tom Harloff||2041|
|Best session||Chris Beesley||856|
|*Most enemy defeats||Alex Malling||13 (Chris graciously declined a second prize)|
|Wooden Spoon||Nick Wedd||556|
*Awarded instead of 'Hand won against most matadors' and 'Highest value hand' which didn't reach the minimum requirements of without 5 and 168 respectively, John and Stan both having unsuccessfully attempted without 5s. ..
Congratulations to all, especially Tom and Mark in their 2nd and 3rd tournaments respectively.
