Just did a double take when I clicked on the link for the master point winners in the Winter STaC (Sectional Tournament at the Clubs) for District 5 ACBL. The list that comes up is topped by a banner that says “2011 Winter STaC.”
It’s this year’s list, though. I look for my name and it has this year’s total in 36 th place with 10.37, thanks mostly to that 7-point first-place game on Wednesday afternoon. The rest of the week was dribs and drabs, including a 0.69 for our team winning three rounds in the Swiss teams match on Sunday. Had we won a fourth, we would have gotten into bonus territory.
It’s not my finest STaC – better than last summer, when I registered 9.28 points, not as good as last December, which saw my all-time STaC high of 13.91.
area players hold down the top two places on this year’s STaC winners list. First place belongs to John Ziemer with 26.52. Second goes to Bud Seidenberg (or, if you will, Buffalo Seidenberg Jr.) with 23.88. Randolph
players held down 16 of the first 52 positions on the list. Here it is, minus the Buffalo Cleveland and people: Pittsburgh
