VIETOR CUP 2008, September in La Jolla, CA

Held September 20-21, 2008: We had 28 players travel to La Jolla, California to play in the 29th edition of the VIETOR CUP at Jon Vietor's beautiful home across the street form the La Jolla Cove park and beach. We again played the tournament using the INDY Swiss Movement (created by Butch Meese and his team from the Hoosier Backgammon Club in Indianapolis, Indiana).
Swiss movement for 6 rounds, players playing opponents of "like records" (e.g. 2-0 vs 2-0 and 1-1 vs 1-1). After the 6th round, we then converted to an elimination format to determine the final two money winners in both the MAIN and CONSOLATION bracket. The results of the VIETOR CUP:


MAIN: Simon Reeves

CONSOLATION: Bob Wachtel
We used Digital Clocks throughout all the matches in order to keep the event to a reasonable
time schedule (only two days to play 12 rounds of matches). To see the Photo Album, click on the following URL.
