BMAB(UK) Ranking Tournament #7: Report Part 1

Posted By: Rick Janowski
Date: Friday, 4 March 2016, at 7:16 p.m.


Twenty players participated in the opening event in the 2016 BMAB (UK) Season, which comprises six tournaments all at the same venue near East Midlands Airport. This tournament was kindly sponsored by Dale Taylor who donated monies towards trophies, certificates and added prize money. Dale and Lawrence Powell were awarded with special “300 Club” loyalty badges to commemorate their participation in 5 tournaments, thus achieving over 300 experience points. They join Peter Bennett, Tim Cross, Julian Fetterlein and Tariq Siddiqi who have already joined the club.

The usual format of a truncated round robin with six rounds of 11 point matches was adopted. After the first day, Peter Bennet and Cecilia Sharpe were the only two players unbeaten after three rounds of play. Over the second day however, both players had lost matches, and after the final round three players were tied at the top of the leaderboard: Simon Barget, Peter Bennet and Gaz Owen. In accordance with the tournament rules the three players shared the prize money from the main-pool and relevant side-pools and the chose to play a one-point match shootout rather than throw dice for the honour of winning the tournament. In this “Good, the Bad and the Ugly” type the ever cool cigar smoking Peter Bennet triumphed (his second BMAB (UK) Tournament victory. Gaz was runner-up and Simon in third place. Congratulations to these worthy winners and to all participants for making the tournament a great success. I would like to make a special thank you to David Phillips, who in participating in his first BMAB tournament, showed himself to be a very courteous and sporting player, fitting in perfectly with the pleasant club-like atmosphere of the BMAB (UK) tournaments.

Part 2 of this Report will give a detailed summary of the PR results, following the transcription and rigorous analysis of the sixty recorded matches. The process should be completed within the next two weeks. This part of the report will summarise tournament PRs, the winners and runners-up of the PR- side pools, adjusted overall aggregate PRs and changes to player gradings (mastership and proficiency levels).
