Re: Illinois Open Mirror at Berkeley (Nov. 15th)

Just for future reference, since I don't read the board regularly, it's probably better to email me about that rather than (or in addition to, if you prefer) posting here.

Anyway, should be fixed now -- thanks for catching it.

The 2004 stats will require some work, but I think as long as you have total points scored (which you do) and total number of TUs and negs (which you do; they're in the Team Reports) you can calculate the bonus conversion. The other years are also nontrivial to extract information from, but it can b...

Hey Jerry, I've been working on updating the Berkeley QB page, and in the process of doing so, I notice that the results on the ACF page are still rather, uh, sparse.

After CO, we held the Lit singles. Due to limited buzzers, we had two seeding rounds of 40 questions each where ...

Hello everyone, Berkeley will be hosting BASQUE, its annual mirror of Chicago Open and assorted additional events, the weekend of August 4th.

That's an easy question to answer. Several of the D2 packets had to be combined with other packets in order to get 20 usable questions. When you do that, though, you create a situation where you have to burn 2 packets to get through 1 round, since you can't read that packet in all game rooms in a si...

First of all, let me point out that while Berkeley fielded three house teams, two were newbies playing in their first tournament, and the third was David Farris playing solo. (All three contributed packets.) So the implication that the veterans were shirking their duty so they could play is inaccura...

I would have no objection to ditching bonuses; they don't work all that well in the 2-player format and it would certainly ease the question-writing burden. As for singles -- I think that I prefer the 2-person team format. There just aren't that many people out there who are capable of playing SM by...
