2015 Capital Classic -- Transcriptions, Videos, and Brackets

The transcriptions of the streamed matches from the 2015 Capital Classic are finished. You can find 34 XG files in this folder: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/65kcyq9vvsyhnlw/AABcBGbdoX0U0KD4n-0_Cyera?dl=0 Note that a few of the matches are incomplete -- typically when we missed recording a portion of the match.

In addition, the videos are available here: https://www.youtube.com/user/USBGFbroadcast/videos Some of the matches are split across multiple videos -- that usually happened when we had to stop the video to check on possible illegal moves or jostled dice. I've updated the titles of all the videos to include the first and last names of the players, and the event/round it took place in.

With the exception of the Novice event, all brackets are posted to Matt Reklaitis' site: http://bgbrackets.com/tourney.php?tournid=7937

The backgammon community owes a debt of thanks to the following tireless volunteer transcribers, with their number of transcribed matches:

  • Bill Patterson 11
  • MishyPoo 8
  • Stick 4
  • Mike Clapsadle 3
  • Bruce Farquhar 2
  • Matthais Krings 2
  • David Rennie 2
  • Taper_Mike 1
  • Jason Lee 1

While Bill Patterson is awarded the MVT trophy, Matthais Krings gets honorable mention for transcribing two matches LIVE from the stream and emailing the file to me mere seconds after the match ended. The one match I transcribed was the Fogerlund-O'Laughlin lecture match, which was also done live, but then I was sitting next to the board. =)
