BMS (UK) RANKING TOURNAMENT #6 - CASTLE DONINGTON,5-6 DECEMBER 2015 - TOURNAMENT REPORT (PART 2)

Further to Part 1 of the Tournament Report, posted on 10 December 2015, I am able to report that the match transcription and detailed analysis/checking/moderation of the 72 matches played at the tournament is now completed.

Congratulations to Chris Rogers who achieved the lowest PR of 4.33 and reduced his overall aggregate PR to 5.09 moving closer to the level of Master (Class 1). Julian Fetterlein and Sebastian Wilkinson, who had jointly achieved the lowest PR at the October tournament, took second and third places, with PRs of 4.48 and 4.90 respectively. Congratulations also to Julian and Sebastian who took first and second places in the PR-Side Pools. Julian remains on the cusp of achieving a Grandmaster title with his overall aggregate PR of 4.08.

Other notable personal performances include those by Mark Calderbank and Dale Taylor who, with PR scores of 5.71 and 5.79 respectively, achieve Master (Class 3) titles, upgrading from their previous grades of Advanced (Class 1). The generous Tournament Sponsor, Paul Gilbertson also had a great performance with his PR of 6.43, which significantly lowered his overall aggregate PR to 7.53, achieving an upgrade to Advanced (Class 2) and narrowly missing Class 1. Rachel Rhodes and Julian Minwalla, very experienced and accomplished players but newcomers to the Backgammon Masters Series, achieved Advanced (Class 2) and Advanced (Class 3) gradings respectively. Rachel, like Paul, narrowly missed the Advanced (Class 1) grading. Julian would have achieved an Advanced (Class 1) and provisional Master (Class 3) grading were it not for an unfortunate time-out loss in round 1 of the tournament. Congratulations to Mark, Dale, Paul, Rachel and Julian for their achievements. Based on current form, it is quite likely that all these players will achieve further upgrades at forthcoming tournaments.

The full results are tabulated and attached below.

I would like to thank all the participants for their enthusiastic, courteous and friendly attitudes throughout the weekend which helped very much in ensuring the tournamentís success. I would also like to give special thanks to Michael Roumeliotis, Jon Barnes, Julian Fetterlein, Sebastian Wilkinson, Mark Calderbank, Julia Hayward and Michel Lamote for their speedy and effective match transcription work. Similarly, special thanks are due to Bernhard Mayr from Austria and Bruce Farquhar from Canada for their significant contribution to BMABís analysis and checking process.

The full results will be incorporated into BMAB's database in the next few days. Moreover, all matches will be made available for downloading on the Resources page of the BMAB website. (http://bgmastersab.com/index.html)
