  1. Do we have official results? How many gold/red points were awarded to each session/overall?


  2. Hi There
    Why were overseas players all placed in band 'A" ? - I have 220 ACBL MPs but has to compete against players with 100's or even 1000's of points more than me.
    On day 2 i would of been first C in my section and 2nd B but in effect missed out on those match points

    1. Hi Dave,
      Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate your concerns about the placement of overseas players in Flight 'A' and the impact it had on your competition. Rest assured, we've forwarded it to the organizers and will propose improvements to the conditions of contest. Thank you for your input! 🙂

  3. This was my first multi-day tournament and although I did not play well, I enjoyed it very much. I’m confused by the award of points, however. I see contestants with overall percentage scores of 15% or less (!!) receiving MPs. Would you explain that? Keep up the good work, we all appreciate it!

    1. Hi Jim,
      About points, it's based on each session performance. Sometimes, players may have performed well in certain sessions despite a lower overall percentage. For instance, if someone played only part of the event and received a score of 60%, followed by 15%, then 0% for unplayed boards, their overall percentage would be 25%. They'd still receive points for the 60% session. 🙂
