SeaCal Results

Posted by Paul S on Wed May 02, 2001 at 0h00

After not panning out last year, the tournament known as SeaCal was back. However, we're going to have to change the nickname because this time instead of playing each other, Seattle and Calgary teamed up against Portland in a team tournament. The tournament location was unchanged from two years ago: The scenic Coeur d'Alene Resort in Coeur d'Alene, ID.

Players play opponents only from the other team and the team with the most wins takes the title. (Exception: Our side had two extra players so there was one intrateam match per round which did not count towards the team standings.)

Portland took the championship by a large margin: 174.5 wins to 125.5. I wasn't able to attend this tournament so I don't have any more details, but the full individual results are online. Thanks to Steven Alexander, maintainer of the Scrabble FAQ and a player in the event, for the results.
