Re: RESULTS: Stanford MO Mirror

I will pass the word along to Eric Smith. If you can point to anything specific, it will probably get fixed. If not, I doubt it's going to get changed, considering that I assume the stats people put up what was on the scoresheets, (which are now either in Brian's apartment or on their way to a landf...

RESULTS: Stanford MO Mirror

In case anyone is curious. Kevin Koai swooped in and played one round with USC B to take a totally legit scoring title. Stanford house team went undefeated. The original full double round-robin was cut two games short in order to insure that the trash tournament would finish at a reasonable hour, al...

Re: Minnesota Open discussion

As another mirror attendee, I echo Jerry's sentiments. We had six teams at the Stanford site, three from Berkeley, two from USC, and a Stanford house team composed of myself and Brian Lindquist. I won't be able to positively verify this until the stats are posted, but I believe that we were the only...

Re: Minnesota Undergrad Tournament discussion

I apologize for any outrage or offense my post may have caused, that was not my intention at all. I may have been thoughtless, but I certainly didn't intend to be accusatory or inflammatory. As I said, I thought it was a very good set. Regarding the plagiarism charge, I am sorry. I remembered a bonu...

Re: Minnesota Undergrad Tournament discussion

I do have one or two points of criticism. First, the meta. I realize it has a place in quizbowl -- it's fun for some people, and I'm sure it keeps the writers and editors entertained, but I question the extent to which it appeared in this tournament. First of all, this was a tournament ostensibly di...

Stanford: ICT: A Team: Eric Smith, Brian Lindquist, Kristiaan De Greve, and possibly Kevin Koai The B Team is less certain, depending on whether we decide to do a Div I UG team, but it could include any combination of Kevin Koai, Alex Inman, Arnav Moudgil, Jason Ma, or myself (Mike Sexton,) all unde...

Hey Chris, Not that it matters that much, since it doesn't appear to change the individual order, but I'm pretty sure my stats are switched with Dwight's for the BYU game. Also, I definitely remember negging in the first game against Stanford, but also getting five tossups... perhaps one of my negs ...

Results: ACF Regionals @ Stanford

Apologies for not having full stats; hopefully those will be posted soon. We played a quadruple round-robin. Berkeley (10-2,) won the tournament, their only losses coming to Stanford A (7-5.) UCLA and Stanford B were third and fourth. The top individuals were Ray (UCLA,) Paul (Berkeley,) Frank G. (S...

yoda, you are probably right. There are better examples of this in these packets, the main point I was trying to make is that it's ok to thrown in stuff to make it fun for advanced players, but that you should do it evenly. I'm not going to argue difficulty of these specific bonuses with you, becaus...

I guess I'm the sort of person who this tournament was aimed at, a fairly new player both to the college game and to quizbowl in general (this was my 4th tournament, and I did not play in high school.) First, I thought the questions were, in general, very good. In terms of quality, the tossups were ...

Just a few observations on ACF regs NE from a complete freshman novice (this was my first tournament of any kind.) First of all, I really enjoyed it. The tournament was well run and I appreciate all the work the guys at Brandeis put into it as well as the folks who wrote questions. The questions the...
