Triangle 2005: Results

Tournament Name: 
Tournament Date: 
23 April 2005

At Hitachi, Maidenhead

The draw was done using a pre-determined grid system. Unfortunately there were not 15 players but 14, so some games were played one-on-one. Otherwise all players played once singly and twice in a pair, each game being with different people. All games were played on handicap based on difference between single’s grade and mean of the pair’s grades (halves rounded stronger).
