Winners of NABC Practice Tournament #2 (March 7-8)

This weekend, March 7-8, ACBL BBOers were invited to play a free 2-day NABC Practice Tournament to get a feeling of what the upcoming ACBL NABC Robot Individual (March 14-16) would be like.


ACBL’s NABC Robot Individual will take place March 14-16 (Sat-Sun-Mon). Keep an eye on the Newsfeed for updates, or click this link to sign up for NABC Updates and we’ll send you updates and reminders by email.


Congratulations to pons_ , who won this weekend’s NABC Practice Tournament and free entry to the actual NABC online event.

In the previous NABC Robot Individual over 1,700 players of the 2,200 registrants “scratched” at least a fraction of a masterpoint at the end of the tournament. So don’t be intimidated. Even if the “honor roll” features scores over 70%, you just need a decent session, in at least one of the daily sessions, to win some red/gold points.

Comments

  1. I played both practice days (7th and 8th) but couldn’t find my name anywhere in the results

  2. I never could find the practice tournament. I have played before, so I think I know how to get to the practice tournament, but it never showed up. I hope that I am able to play during the real tournament.

  3. I too could not find either of practice events, What went wrong?
    It seems many others could not find those events!

  4. I have won my club championship and the local district NAPs yet was well under 50% for these games. When I see people scoring over 70%- let me just say it makes me very suspicious. Does BBO have any controls vs cheating?

    1. Yes there are cheating checks, both automated, and manual to validate the results of any major event.
