Loa Tournament status

The second and final round of the fourth Email LOA tournament is over, and the winner is, jarrausi, with a final record of 6 wins and 1 loss.  Second place goes to kerryh, who also has 6 wins and one loss; that one loss is to jarrausi.   I think is is particularly impressive that both of these players are new to the game, and were not even established in the PBEM ratings at the start of the tournament.

Here are the results from the first round of the 1999-2000 LOA email LOA tournament. The tournament has 26 participants.   Due to the number of players, there will be two rounds; the first consisting 6 or 7 player round-robins, and the second consisting of the winners and runners-up from the first round. Places in the first round were randomized in groups of four, seeded by current standing in the server ratings.

There were an unusual number of forfeits and no-shows, which reduced the head counts for the sections and resulted in not everyone playing the same number of games.  There also were an unusual number of tiles which required some breaking to arbitrate the winners.
