The fourth British Synchron-Skat Tournament was held as part
of the 2002 Mind Sports Olympiad (MSO6), hosted by
Mind Sports Worldwide
on the campus of Loughborough University. It was on Saturday
There were five entrants. So, to make the numbers up to six, enough for two tables and Synchron scoring, David Parlett, who was arbiter for the event, also played.
Four sessions, each of twelve hands, were played. The results were:
|Round 1||Round 2||Round 3||Round 4||Total|
As David was the aribiter rather than an entrant, he was not eligible
for a prize. The next three players were all tied on four match-points.
Therefore cumulative score differences were used as a tie-break, and the
gold medal was awarded to Tomasz Wojtkun, the silver to
Peter Henke, and the bronze to Jeffrey Burton.
Lady Mary Tovey, one of the Mind Sports directors, awarded the prizes.
Jeffrey deserves particular congratulations, as he had only learned the game the previous evening, when he had dropped out of a Poker event, and been taught the rules by John McLeod. Less than twenty-four hours elapsed between Jeffrey's first hearing the rules of skat, and his receiving the bronze medal.
