INBJUDAN TILL ENGELSKT SCRABBLE-SM 2013

Lördagen den 25 maj 2013 arrangerar Svenska Scrabbleförbundet det fjärde svenska mästerskapet i engelskt Scrabble. Det äger rum i Stockholm. SM är den tredje och kanske sista tävlingen som ger kvalifikationspoäng för kampen om Sveriges plats i årets World Scrabble Championship. Var detta ska äga rum är inte utannonserat ännu.

För mer information, läs om det svenska VM-kvalet. SM ger även poäng till den svenska ratinglistan för engelskt Scrabble. Om vi får deltagare från flera länder, kanske vi även kan så SM godkänt som ratinggrundande för det internationella förbundet WESPAs ratinglista.

Alla är varmt välkomna till SM, för att delta eller titta på!
Greger Nässén

An English version of this invitation is posted further down in this thread.

Deltagare
Engelskt Scrabble-SM 2013 är öppet för högst 9 deltagare (sänkt från 24 pga lokalbyte). Detta svenska mästerskap är det första som är öppet för alla, även spelare som bor utomlands eller utländska medborgare som har bott kort tid i Sverige. Kvalifikationspoäng för att få representera Sverige i årets Scrabble-VM delas dock enbart ut till svenska medborgare och utländska medborgare som bott i Sverige åtminstone sedan maj 2008. En förutsättning för utdelning av kvalpoäng är dock att minst sex kvalberättigade spelare genomför SM.

Anmälan
Du anmäler dig via förbundets hemsida. Klicka på Engelskt Scrabble-SM under Kommande turneringar. Klicka sedan på knappen Anmälan, och sen på Vidare. Välj ditt namn (om du spelat förut) eller skriv in ditt namn (om du aldrig har tävlat eller spelat en registrerad träningsmatch) tillsammans med övriga uppgifter. Klicka på Skicka så skickas dina uppgifter med e-post till arrangören Greger Nässén.

Om du som har anmält dig får förhinder, avanmäl dig omgående via tävlingens sida genom att klicka på Anmälan och sedan välja Avanmäla mig från turneringen. Vid mycket sent avhopp, ring till Greger på 070-2798705 så att en eventuell reserv kan få en chans att delta med kort varsel.

Lokal
Spellokal är Gregers lägenhet på Orvar Odds väg 5 i Fredhäll på västra Kungsholmen i centrala Stockholm. (Portkoden meddelas separat.) En karta över området finns här.

Om du vill ta reda på vad det finns för restauranger, kaféer, kiosker och bankomater i närområdet, läs eller spara denna kartguide!

Enklaste sättet att ta sig till Fredhäll är att åka tunnelbana till Kristineberg. Gå till vänster under spåren och följ trottoaren till ett övergångsställe. Gå uppför en liten backe med ledstång till Fredhällsgatan. Där Fredhällsgatan slutar fortsätter du framåt mellan två hus och passerar några tallar på vänster hand tills du ser Mälaren. Port nr 5 finns i det högra huset. Alternativt kan du ta buss 62 eller buss 49 till hpl Frödingsvägen, så kommer du lite närmare än med tunnelbana. Om du tänker åka bil och/eller är osäker på om du hittar - hör av dig till Greger för vägbeskrivning!

Startavgift
Startavgiften är preliminärt 100 kronor som du betalar på plats. Om du inte är medlem (eller inte har förnyat din avgift) i Scrabbleförbundet måste du även betala en medlemsavgift på 60 kronor (30 kr för födda 1995 eller senare). Deltagare från utlandet behöver dock inte betala medlemsavgift. Dryck, kaffe/te och tilltugg ingår i startavgiften.

Regler
Engelskt Scrabble-SM följer Svenska Scrabbleförbundets officiella tävlingsregler. En skillnad mot reglerna tillämpas dock på engelska tävlingar: Betänketiden per spelare och parti är 25 minuter i stället för 30 minuter, eftersom det är internationell standard oavsett var man spelar på engelska.

Spelsystem
Engelskt Scrabble-SM spelas i åtta ronder. Turneringsprogrammet Manfred används för Monradlottning med ren poängskillnad. Frirond räknas som en vinst med +150 poäng. Vid lågt deltagarantal kan spelsystemet behöva justeras, så att deltagare kan få mötas igen i slutet av tävlingen.

Spelschema
Samling 8:30 - Rond 1 9:00 - Rond 2 10:00 - Rond 3 11:00 - Lunch 12:00 - Rond 4 13:00 - Rond 5 14:00 - Rond 6 15:00 - Paus 16:00 - Rond 7 16:20 - Rond 8 17:20 - Prisutdelning 18:40.

Ordlista och ordkontroll
Tävlingsordlista är den internationella tävlingsordlistan Collins Official Scrabble WordS (CSW 2012). Spelarna förväntas sköta ordkontrollen själva. Överdomare utses på plats.

Kvalifikationspoäng för VM
SM-deltagare som har rätt att representera Sverige i VM tilldelas kvalpoäng beroende på hur de placerar sig inbördes. Den sist placerade får 1 poäng, näst sista 2 poäng, trean från slutet 3 poäng och så vidare. Vinnaren, tvåan och trean får dessutom 16, 8 och 4 bonuspoäng. Den som när VM-kvalet är avslutat har flest kvalpoäng, erbjuds av styrelsen att få representera Sverige i VM (dock på egen bekostnad). Den näst bästa spelaren i kvalet blir officiell reserv. Om en eller båda av dessa tackar nej, kan reserver ta över i turordning efter sina slutliga kvalpoäng.

Priser och vandringsdjur
Hur mycket som finns på prisbordet beror på antalet deltagare. Topptrion kommer förstås att få pokaler eller medaljer och andra priser. Om budgeten tillåter kan fler få priser efter placering. Ett eller flera specialpriser kommer också att delas ut, åtminstone för flest rullningar. Ett vandringsdjur kommer att tilldelas den högst placerade spelaren av dem som fått (eller skulle kunnat få) kvalifikationspoäng till Scrabble-VM.

_______________________________

INVITATION TO SWEDISH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 2013

On Saturday 25 May 2013, the Swedish Scrabble Association (SSA) arranges the fourth National Championship in English Scrabble in Stockholm.

It is the third and possibly last tournament that could give qualification points for representing Sweden in World Scrabble Championship 2013 (still to be announced). For more information, read about the Swedish 2013 WSC qualification process. The championship also gives rating points for Sweden's English Scrabble rating list. If we get participants from several countries, the championship may also be rated by the international Scrabble association WESPA as a Local tournament.

Everyone is very welcome to the event, to take part or to observe!
Greger Nässén

En svensk version av den här inbjudan finns ovan.

Participants
The Swedish National Scrabble Championship 2013 (NSC 2013) is open for up to 9 players (lowered from 24 due to change of venue). This NSC is the first that is open to all, even players who live abroad or who have been residents of Sweden for a shorter time. However, qualification points for Sweden's representation at 2013 WSC will only be appointed to Swedish citizens or foreign citizens who have lived permanently in Sweden at least since May 2008. The tournament can only be counted as a qualifier for the WSC if at least six eligible players take part.

Registering
You enter as a participant on the SSA homepage. Click on Engelskt Scrabble-SM under Kommande turneringar ("Upcoming tournaments"). Click the button Anmälan ("Registration"), then click Vidare ("Next"). Choose your name (if you have played a registered game in Sweden before) or type it in along with other personal details. Finally click Skicka to send a registration e-mail to the tournament director Greger Nässén.

If you have registered and need to cancel, please click Anmälan on the NSC 2013 page and then choose the option Avanmäla mig från turneringen ("Unregister from the tournament"). If you have to drop out at a very late stage, please call Greger on +46 702798705 so an alternate can get a chance to enter at short notice.

Venue
The venue is Greger's flat on Orvar Odds väg 5 in Fredhäll, on the western part of the island of Kungsholmen in the centre of Stockholm. (The entry code will be sent out separately.) A map over the area is found here.

If you want to find out what restaurants, cafés, kiosks and ATMs there are in the vicinity, read or download this map guide! (Sorry - it's only available in Swedish.)

The easiest way to get to Fredhäll is to take the tube to Kristineberg on the green line. Exit to the left under the tracks and walk straight ahead for about 100 meters over a zebra crossing. Follow an uphill path with handrails to the street of Fredhällsgatan. Where the street ends you walk on between two parallel houses with a tiny park. Gate 5 is in the house to the right. You can also take bus 62 or 49 from Fridhemsplan station to the bus stop Frödingsgatan, which will get you a bit closer to the venue. If you plan to go by car or still feel unsure, please contact Greger for more detailed directions.

Tournament fee
The suggested tournament fee is SEK 100 which you pay at the venue. If you're not a member of the SSA (or haven't renewed your membership) you also need to pay a membership fee of SEK 60 (SEK 30 if you are born in 1995 or later). Participants from abroad don't need to pay the membership fee. Soft drinks, tea, coffee and snacks are included in the fee.

Rules
The championship follows the official Swedish tournament rules of SSA. Unlike Swedish tournaments, however, the match time per player and game is 25 minutes instead of 30 minutes, since this is international standard when you play English Scrabble elsewhere.

Pairing system
The championship will be played in eight rounds. The pairing software Manfred will be used for Swiss (Monrad) pairing with unadjusted spread calculation. A free round is counted as a win with +150 points. If the number of participants is low, the pairing system may have to be adjusted, so that players may meet again at the end of the tournament.

Schedule
Information 8.30 am - Round 1 9.00 - Round 2 10.00 - Round 3 11.00 - Lunch 12.00 - Round 4 1.00 pm - Round 5 2.00 - Round 6 3.00 - Break 4.00 - Round 7 4.20 - Round 8 5.20 - Prize ceremony 6.40.

Wordlist and checking
The tournament wordlist is the international tournament wordlist Collins Official Scrabble Words (CSW 2012). Participants are expected to adjudicate word challenges together. A referee and deputy referee will be appointed at the premises.

WSC qualification points
Championship players eligible for WSC qualifiation get qualifying points according to their relative final standings. The last placed player gets 1 point, the second but last 2 points, the third but last 3 points and so on. The three best participants also get 16, 8 and 4 bonus qualifying points. When the WSC qualification process is closed, the SSA committee will offer the player with the highest qualifying points the chance to represent Sweden at the WSC (at his or her expense). The next best player is asked to be the official alternate. If one or both of these players decline, alternates can step in according to their final qualification points.

Prizes and challenge pet
The number of prizes displayed on the prize table depends on the available budget. The top three players will of course get trophies or medals and other prizes. If the tournament budget allows it, more prizes for standings can be up for grabs. There will be no money prizes, though. One or more special prizes will also be awarded, at least for most bonus words. A new challenge pet will be entrusted to the highest placed player among those that received (or could have received) WSC qualification points.

Thanks to Greger and all the other participants for a nice tournament. I'll write something about my games here:

1. Todd

Since Todd hadn't played before I had no idea what to expect. I started the game with the phony *RUK (only ROK, RUC or ROC is allowed for this legendary bird). When Todd responded by playing SU(R) for about 4 points I thought the game might be easy since that is not what most experienced players would do. And also because I could play (S)oDOMIZE for quite a few points. Unfortunately, Todd's first move was probably a (somewhat unorthodox) balancing move because he responded with WADINGS + (SoDOMIZE)D for 119 points. He continued playing good words including a second bingo and I found myself chasing more and more desperately. Towards the end I took my chances with FINALES + (PERT)S even though I didn't really believe PERTS would be valid. Todd didn't challenge but it seems to be a plural of a 'programme evaluation and review technique'. This allowed me to win narrowly.

2. Marja

The second game also started with an early bingo for me. I played *CAViEST even though I really know that is not valid, and there were plenty of other bingos to choose from (CAVY is only an animal). Later I didn't play LEISTER because I wasn't sure and instead chose ST(E)ELIER for fewer points. But it was enough for victory.

3. Gunnar

I had been lucky before but now it wasn't my game. Gunnar started the game with rETILED which is kind of odd but I know it's valid so I did not challenge. I didn't have good tiles and found myself struggling to get anywhere near, when a few moves later Gunnar played *SEqUIOA. I challenged that one off but was faced with a dilemma: should I play BENJ + J(Ar) for 48 points, or try to block SEqUOIA? Since I had no even nearly good way to block it and I figured Gunnar was fairly likely to block my BENJ in that case and then surely bingo anyway with his blank tile, I let him go. A little later I missed TEREDOS for a double-double word but that's ok because I didn't know that word. I found ROSETED but it wasn't playable, neither was OERSTED that I didn't find although I know the word. Towards the end of the game I opened up for an S-hook to possibly get a chance to bingo, but Gunnar took that immediately with IVORIES. This caused him to empty the bag and I could see that he had AIPQRWZ on his rack. So even though I was over 150 points behind at this point, I could possibly win if I scored a bingo over the I in the triple word column. My tiles were EFNOPST and the best I could come up with was *STOPF(I)NE, *POSTF(I)NE, *SPOTF(I)NE or *TOPF(I)NES. I noticed PONT(I)FS would have given me 48 points, but losing with 90 points or so is not so much more fun than losing with 200 so I took my chances and let Gunnar play WAZ(I)R as expected after he challenged my attempt off. But it was worth the chance of a miraculous comeback!

4. Greger

Once more I was lucky with my tiles. After stupidly trying *(R)EMAILER for more points at a double-double word I could still play MEALIER. Later I could increase my lead with TACK(L)INg and I could finally outpoint Greger with (O)UTPOINT, which is in fact a verb that means getting more points, and not a noun (an extreme point) as I had thought.

5: Lisa

Lisa opened strong with ZINES but I could immedely respond with MORN(I)NGs as a double-double word. My luck continued and I could play three more bingos: INDORSe, PANTILE and HINDERS. Only the last one had a phony hook, *(UR)S which I also might have let go, so there was not much Lisa could have done really.

6. Gunnar

My return against Gunnar started much better for me and I got a blank fairly early with the rack AEEONT?. I immediately saw NEOnATE but also *dONATEE which was worth a few more points. After some agonizing I decided it was real and played that. Fortunately Gunnar didn't check it. The only other seven available was AcETONE which would not have been any better than NEONATE. So the lesson really is to be happy with what you've got and not assume there must be something better around! I was ahead for the rest of the game and towards the end my rack was EGIILS? when those unseen were EHIILNQSZ (Gunnar was good at drawing QZ at the end against me). Gunnar played LEZ for quite a bit of points and now had plenty of opportunities to go out with QIS and HIN. On the other hand there were good opportunities for a bingo with two hooks at the end under AL, TE. Unfortunately my time was up so I quickly had to decide whether to go for the bingo and take some penalty for the clock, or move quickly to get out in two with decent scores. I had immediately noticed SEILInG which wasn't playable, but I thought there must be some bingo ending in -ES or -ISE and decided to not worry about the clock. Those available were GILgIES, GIlLIES, GILpIES, GIrLIES and jILGIES and fortunately I found the only one among those that I know. Although I had considered playing GIlLIES in case I didn't find anything better.

7. Marja

This was another game where I had maximum luck with my tiles. In one of the first moves I could playe DONATES and when Marja bingoes a little later I could immediately respond with CLOUDI(E)R. I now had a lead that got bigger with PARTNER towards the end, after which I drew a blank. At that point I took my chances with *JA(S)SINGs. I know JASS is vallid, so why not (JASS, as I didn't know before, is a card game, so it was not completely improbable). Marja was a bit resigned at that point and didn't challenge it so for the second game in the tournament I got four bingos.

8. Todd

So my tournament ended as it began. This time I tried *LENDORS in my starting move, after rejecting RONDELS which would have been a better choice (I was fairly sure there was a bingo, but I could not remember what it was). Fortunately I could then play L(A)DRONES in my next move. I think we both struggled with our tiles because the board turned into something which was very hard to score points on. A key event was when Todd played *(PIANO)LA for 27 points which was a lot given the opportunities. Now I think pianola is a perfectly normal word but as it happened I was fairly sure I had tried to play this myself and found that it is not valid. Possibly the most obvious non-allowed word that I know of, in fact! Later Todd opened up with RATIO for an N or S in the triple-word column, and I tried *AEGIrIN which Todd challenged off. It's AEGIRINE. And I could not ImAGINE. Now Todd blocked the column with his blank tile and since I was still ahead I started to feel pretty safe with my blank tile and almost nowhere to play anything. I could later open up with AIT for (AIT)s given that all S:es had been played and the only U left (AITU) would have had to be at the end so I did not worry too much about it. I could then play ENTOILs which decided the game finally.

At last, here is a longer report from the Swedish NSC in May.
I've added a shorter version of this report to the tournament page,
and have also posted more than 20 photos in a new album.
The new challenge pet, Johan R, has finally been added to the English zoo of challenge pets.
All the best, Greger


REPORT FROM THE SWEDISH NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 2013

The Swedish National Championship 2013 (NSC 2013) took place on 25 May in Greger's home in Stockholm. At first, the venue was announced to be the well-known community room in his house, but as there were only six registered players at a late stage, Greger decided to move to his flat instead. One of the players, Todd Webster, made his debut on the Swedish tournament scene. The championship counted as a qualifier for the The Scrabble Champions Tournament (the revamped World Scrabble Championship) in Prague in December.

The NSC 2013 was played in 8 rounds with non-adjusted spread (no "PJ-points", unlike most Swedish tournaments). Marja took the lead after round 1, followed by Gunnar and Johan. Gunnar then took over prime position and kept it until round 6, when Johan won over Gunnar and advanced to the top. Johan also won the last two games, and with 7 wins out of 8 he became the new Swedish Champion! Hooray and congratulations! Gunnar was runner-up with 6 wins, and Todd climbed up to a third position after round 7 and kept that place. Congratulations to both of you too!

There was a particularly close match between Lisa and Todd in round 4. Lisa played an early PROoFED 67 p. Todd scored better in the following moves and was almost even with Lisa, when she bingoed with TuBBIER 73 p. But Todd at once played out SOLDERS 69 p, making the score 212-204. The score was very close until the end. When Lisa played out her last tile the score was 392-394. Lisa got 3 points from Todd, making the final score 395-391 in Lisa's favour. Lisa also played an eventually very close match against Gunnar in round 8. She played one bingo in mid-game, directly after Gunnar's only one, but still lagged behind with 68 p. In her final move she cleared the rack with DOLLIER for 86 p, from which Gunnar narrowly escaped victorious with 387-390.

There were a few high-scoring games, e.g. Lisa vs. Johan in round 5, 332-535 (Johan played four bingoes) and Gunnar vs. Greger 536-274 in round 7 (with 4 bingoes by Gunnar). The match with the highest total score was Marja vs. Greger, 416-458, in round 8. The average score was 375, the 6th best among the 20 tournaments played so far. The bingo average was 1.35 per player and game, the 5th best ever. The champion Johan was also the most prolific bingoer, 19 in all. One 100+ bingo was played, WADINGS 119 p, by Todd in round 1 against Johan.

For budgetary reasons, the prize table was quite small. The top three got small glass runestones with plaques. Greger had also found a few pocket books, notebooks and crossword and dice games left over from previous tournaments. The Swedish Champion Johan was also honoured with a new challenge pet, the frog Johan R. There was no challenge pet awarded at the last NSC in 2011, so Greger had bought another pet to remedy this. But he forgot to present that pet officially, so the soft little animal will have to be entrusted later on to the last champion Daniel Domert. Johan also got a special prize for his many bingoes - a box with rollable Lindor chocolate balls.

Congratulations and thank you all for a very nice tournament!

This is not correct. The high scoring bingo was WADINGS, with the hook (SoDOMIZE)D, which was a direct response to my bingo.
