Bruce Monnin's Tournament Status Update as of December 3, 1999.

The elite 8 field is set for round #3 of the first BPA War At Sea PBeM Championship. The 8 second round winners all advance to the quarterfinals. Here are the survivors and their AREA ratings (which do not yet reflect the second round results), as well as the brackets for the rest of the tournament. Note that Vince Meconi has already defeated James Pei and is awaiting the other three qualifiers for the final 4:

Match 1

Match 2

Match 3

Match 4

Robert Mull 1674
Jonathan Lockwood 1605

(W) Vince Meconi 1681
(L) James Pei 1462

Bruce Monnin 1704
Sean McKenzie 1543

Nick Markevich 1554
Ray Freeman 1910

You may begin your games immediately. The deadline for this round will be March 31, 2000. However, since the brackets are now set, you will be able to start your next round match as soon as the other game in your bracket is completed. Since we are moving along so well, I think we should tell Don to have that plaque ready for presentation at WBC 2000.

At the beginning of these matches, both players will secretly indicate their preference of side to play by sending an email to myself (Bruce Monnin at Sean McKenzie and I will email our preferences to assistant GM Vince Meconi (we will start our match after I return from vacation in a week). If both players choose the same side, the GM will order a die roll, the winner of which will have the option of starting the bidding for that side by offering a POC handicap to his opponent. The handicap must be in increments of 0.5 POC. The second player can either accept the non preferred side and the offered POC handicap (if any), or offer a greater POC handicap to play the preferred side. Bidding will continue until one player accepts the other player's POC handicap offer.

At the end of each turn, please email the current status of your game to Nick Markevich ( so he can post the results on the BPA War At Sea PbeM Tournament web page at: <>.

The winner of each game advances to the next round. In the event of a draw, the Allied player will advance (remember this when choosing and bidding for sides). However, tie games will still be reported to AREA as a tie.

Bruce Monnin is the Gamemaster for the BPA War at Sea PBeM Tournament.
