December 2017 California State Championship (GA79)

At our Weekly Tournaments we award Master Points to prize winners. In addition, Bonus Point tournaments (an extra 3,2,& 1 points are added on) are the last playing Wednesday & Sunday each month. In those events, the Master Points are 8,5,3,3,1,1,1,1 for 1st thru 8th (or 7,4,2,2,1,1,1,1) depending on the number of rounds played (6 or 5).
NOTE: The top 16 players, from each venue, at year-end will be invited to the "Tournament of 2013 Champions" on February 9th, 2014. For those who qualify at both locations, they will receive a bye into round-2.
Tournament of 2017 Champions (held February 2018): Parick Gibson overcame his four opponents to win our 'Tournament of 2018 Champions'. This event is by invitation only and consists of the top-16 players (from each of our two weekly venues) based on Master Points achieved during those weekly tournaments throughout 2018. In the early years it was only the top-16, (e.g total points) across both venues. However starting in 2004, we modified our selection criteria. Since we hold two weekly events and some players only play on Sunday or only on Wednesday, we decided to level the playing field. We began tracking the top-16 from each location. If at year-end, a player qualified in both locations, s/he receives a bye into round two of the Tournament-of-20xx-Champions. For 2018, We had 24 players who started in round-one and 8 more who received byes into round-two.
TOURNAMENT OF 2018 CHAMPIONS: Our top-16 players from both venues (Wednesday & Sunday) qualified to play in the TOC. Held at the B B SAARA, Feb. 11, 2018. The results were: 1st Patrick Gibson 2nd Farid Khalili 3/4 Bud Lavassani 3/4 Steve Sax
