The 2018 Leavenworth Regional: Sunday, November 4

Nächste Leavenworth Regional ist im Jahr 2020!

Final Attendance:

952 tables, up from 908½ in 2015, a 4.8% increase!  Sunday's attendance was lower, but exactly the same as it was in 2015; I'm guessing all of the people who chose to leave on Sunday were essential to the excellent turnout.  Karen Rise and her volunteers will be hoping to continue growing and maybe in 2020 we can get into four-digit territory!


Kirkwood Trophy winner Jack Lee tops tournament standings!

We called the Kirkwood Trophy Race (most masterpoints in a calendar year at District 19 Regionals excluding Alaska's) for Jack Lee in yesterday's online Bulletin, and a second-place finish in the Open Swiss on Sunday put him atop the tournament standings!  Bravo!

Thanks to Karen Rise and her team on another successful Leavenworth Regional!  Not much else to say, but before we wrap this up we should finally translate the subheadlines on each daily page, for those interested (they were translated via Google and may be rather poor German, apologies if this is so.)

Sunday Open Swiss Teams

Winners: Carmichael, Pan, Yan

Except for their fourth round match against the X winners, Carmichael scored 99 VPs out of 100.  Pan beat Carmichael by 14 IMPs in round five to make it close at the end; Pan got 13 VPs against Hurdle in the finale, while Carmichael scored up yet another blitz against, shall we say, another strat A team, for the close win!  But as mentioned above, the undefeated day for team Pan put Jack Lee, who we said had clinched the Kirkwood Trophy, into the tournament lead by just 0.15!  Another blitz, this one by Yan in round five, sealed the strat Y victory for team Yan and a few more gold slivers.

Sun Bracketed 0-2000 Swiss Teams

Winners: Foster, Desbrisay

In Bracket One, the Foster team scored 87 VPs out of 100 in the first five rounds, then faced the teams that ended second and third; for good measure, they beat them as well (although the margins were smaller) to go undefeated!  In Bracket Two, the key match between Desbrisay and Vazeux was in round four, and Desbrisay won handily, a good thing, for at the end of the day they were a mere single victory point ahead!
