How Angry Should We Be?
Yes, it was fun playing them twice for first, even though there was no award for 2nd the second time. Both matches were reasonably close - 32 and 20.
Presumably, a Sad State of Affairs?
Don't know about the season ticket business, but the actual time progression was/is: 1. Very few KO's. 2. KO's with only one bracket, seeded in some way (mostly total MP's). 3. KO's with one bracket, random seeding, i.e., no seeding (so we non-experts ...
Presumably, a Sad State of Affairs?
Steve, (in the other post) see my discussion of a previous KO (the same week) to the one with the problem.
Presumably, a Sad State of Affairs?
Right, Ray. Do you have any suggestions as to what the directors should have done? Is it just take a day off or play pairs?
How Angry Should We Be?
Andy, right, understood. Here is the rest of the story. With no disrespect to them, teams 5, 6, 7, 8 were neither young nor "up and coming" players. The same 4 teams with the higher masterpoint totals played two days before (Monday), along with 2 or 3 teams between 10 ...

How Angry Should We Be?

How Angry Should We Be?
By World Class Plus, I mean all the players have WON multiple World Championships in Open events. Does that seem like a fair description? 6 person team. 200,000 is the number the team reported and is accepted by the directors. True, three of the players are foreign and given ...
How Angry Should We Be?
They won (fairly closely, actually). Probably, added to their 200,000 MP's. Not totally clear (see above).
