Back to NSA Club #3 Tournaments or 1999-2000 Season
NSA Club #3 held its annual end-of-season club tournament on June 14th, 21st and 28th, 2000, directed by John Chew.
Because of a large number of individual schedule conflicts, dropouts and late additions, the tournament was played mostly according to a "fixed" schedule that was revised from evening to evening according to changes in the number of players. 14 players in the A division played a schedule with no repeated pairings and omitted pairings arranged as much as possible so that sums of omitted opponent ranks correlated linearly but inversely with player ranking. 9 players in the B division (originally 10) played a full round robin and one KOTH. 12 players in the C division played a similar schedule to that described for the A division.
Congratulations to the following prizewinners:
Zev Kaufman's last-round defeat of Libero Paolella was enough for him to claim sole victory of the A division season championship for a record-tying 11th time. Sinna Vijayakumar won the B division season championship for the first time, and in the C division, Donna Wyonch finished in third place to take the championship from pre-tournament leader Stan Jeffay.
