The 15th Young Chelsea Skat tournament was held on Sunday October 17th 2010.
It was duplikat, but used used a slightly different format from our usual. After each round, instead of grouping the highest-scoring players by table, they were grouped by seat. Thus in the final round, the players with the highest scores were all holding the same hands in seat 1 at each table, and those with the worst scores were all in seat 3 at each table.
We had only six entrants, including two guests from Denmark. The organiser was Nick Wedd. With a small number of fast players, we managed four sessions, each of 24 boards. The only director calls were for mis-pre-dealt hands, generally have two 10-card hands, one 1-card hand, and eleven cards in the skat.
In round three, Michael Wachowiak sat in seat 2 on table 1 and scored 729, while Chris Beesley sat in seat 2 on table 2 and score 490. These scores were accidentally applied incorrectly, with Chris instead of Michael being awarded the 2 MPS and 119½ difference points. The results table below shows the corrected results. The first place was unaffected by the error; all the others were affected, and the second prize was awarded to the player who should have come last (despite his second-highest score difference).
