[The "Quality Bughouse Tournament", a master's challenge]

Finally after four or five weeks or planning, the tournament was ready to happen during the weekend of feb 22nd and 23rd, 2003. There were 8 participants needed and these were the dates where there was hope to get a strong field together. Unfortunately some of the top players were still unable to make it this time, including #1 rated DragonSlayr, the dreaded JKiller and the old school king, Gnejs.

These are the players who showed up in time to play the tournament - some had to get up at 8am (the aussies), others had to stay up until 3:30am to finish (the swedes and the danish FM):

VABORIS
Firefly
pminear
tantheman
Bugzilla
LinusO
LINDEGREN
venomous

LINDEGREN, according to VampireGod the "owner of world's largest cheese factory and holder of the record for largest number of wins with fractions of a second on his clock", agreed to fill in as 8th player while venomous jumped in for GhostShell who was held away by school stuff. Thanks to the two for their commitment! Zola was the other arbiter and he actually managed to record half of the games while i was too stupid to understand i have to actually turn the logging on. Thanks Zola!

Now, here is a protocol of the tournament. It was prepared as channel tells towards the players. Click on the links to download the games of each match, or get all of them here.

Rules of the tournament:
For every round, you get a partner assigned. Then you will play each other team for 4 consecutive games (one match); during these games, please make sure that you play both opponents with both colors. This is easily done by matching the first, rematching, matching the second, rematching.

Each round therefore consists of 12 games. I will announce both the teams and the matches, but not the single games. After you played 4 games vs. another team, the winning team is responsible for telling me the result. We will count every game within a match with one point, as usual. There is a max of 4 points to win in a match, and 12 points in a round. The player with the greatest number of points in the end wins the tournament.
