VIETOR CUP 2006, September in La Jolla, CA

VIETOR CUP September 23-24, 2006: We had 22 players travel to La Jolla, California to play in the 27th 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 CUP 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 a MAIN and CONSOLATION bracket. The results of the VIETOR CUP:
MAIN: Steve Sax besting Tom Fahland in the finals. CONSOLATION: Nick Maffeo besting Ron Bruns in the finals. We used Digital Clocks throughout all the matches (9-points) in order to keep the event to a reasonable time schedule (only two days to play 11 rounds of matches).
