Welcome to all. As of now, nine players are signed up, making this the largest tournament in English for a while.

I have decided we will use the Swiss Pairing System tournament format. I should be able to take a lower tournament fee than 100 kr, since more players are signed up than I had expected.

Please ask on this forum if you have queries.

Thanks for the tournament! The settings for the last game was eerily similar to the Richards-Gibson game in the Nationals, but luckily Marc didn´t pull off a Nigel Richards comeback. I had great bonus tiles throughout the tournament, especially bonus tiles without blanks, and most of the bonuses I played were rather pedestrian. I spotted MILTERS but chickened out and didn't see LIMITERS at the same move, although I´m not sure that would have played it. I probably missed dozens of bonuses with less bonus-prone tiles, of course.

Thanks for an exciting tournament! I'd have liked to win one or two more games to improve my rating, however I lost two very close games against Johan in round 4 (355-351), and Roland in round 8 (332-329), where he got -10 for overtime. The match against Johan stood out compared to my other seven, as it was unusually short, just 12 moves for each of us. In the match against Marc in round 7, I mixed up two letters and had to pick up *ALENIATE, but in my next move I was lucky to quickly find AL(LEV)IATEs, the first ten-letter bingo to be played in a Swedish tournament. However, I shouldn't have tried to play *BEA later in the game. My match against Zakarias in round 2 (356-326) was also very close. I came in the lead early on after (M)IDPOiNT for 76 points, but Zak closed in all the time and managed to get 46 points for SHORT in his final play, and I got minus 20 for overtime. Hope to post some photos later on. /Greger

PS. Small corrections of my bonus words: YtTTRIUM(S), E(F)FACERs, *ALpACkA(S).

Hi,
Thanks for the positive comments.
Prior to previous tournaments, I have practised bingos mostly. For this tournament, however, I practised short words, hooks and practice games and did not practise bingos at all. As a result, I felt that I played better overall even though I played fewer than one bingo per game.
I also feel that the overall level of our English Scrabble tournaments has continually increased over the last five years.
Please tell me if any more corrections are required to the bingo list and I will correct it.

I'd also like to say thank you for hosting a nice tournament. I didn't play very good myself, and my huge negative spread shows how big i lost some of the games. :shock: Still, it was fun to play, looking forward to the next time!

I've also practiced almost exclusively short words using the Zyzzyva's card box system. It indeed gives a more solid shorter game, but the downside is that practicing on PEBA, KAWA etc isn't as fun as trying to anagram sevens and eights. But then again, the racks with ABEP are far more common than the racks with ALLOOTX...
