The 25th Young Chelsea Skat Tournament

We welcomed 15 players to our April 15th tournament and played four sessions of 18 boards. The hands were dealt at the table and seating arranged so that no-one played against the same player in different rounds.

Unlike Novemberís non-synchron tournament which was completely dominated by Patrick Phair, this one was very close with 5 players scoring over 2000, and just 12pts separating the top three. The organiser Mike Tobias, won with 2162 pts, and in the best traditions of the BSkA, chose to forgo the prize which instead went to Mark Dunn (2151).
