25th Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Goes to sunray

sunray (1708), #8 seed, defeated #22 seed, zulu (1456), 8-3 in the finals .. zulu broke out to an early 3-0 lead, but threw a possibly risky cube when ahead in the fourth game .. sunray redoubled and eventually gammoned zulu for the win

in keeping with the Bloody Mary tradition of upsets, zulu defeated top seed dorbel 3-0 in round 3 .. sunray defeated RickrinSF in the semi-finals to assure a new winner in this weeks "Sunday Special"

thanks to all for playing in the 25th Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" .. remember, all previous Bloody Mary winners will receive invitations to participate in the Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season Championship Tournament .. winners of two or more weekly tourneys will receive two invites to the season championship

the season championship will be a multi-day event (possibly double-elimination) with 5 point matches and a 7 point final round .. this will be a standard TourneyBot event broken into two 16 player brackets to accomodate multiple entries .. the final championship round, if necessary, will be a single 9 point match between the winners of each bracket to be scheduled at mutual convenience for the first Sunday after both brackets are completed .. invitations for the championship brackets will be sent after the 32nd "Sunday Special" sometime during the first week in May 2008

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special"
(3-pt matches/5-pt final)
Sun, 16 Mar 08
Registration 10:00am CDT (15:00 UTC)
Play begins at 10:20 am or 15:20 UTC

RickrInSF Wins His Second Bloody Mary Cup

in a small field top-heavy with previous winners, number 7 seed, RickrInSF, wins his second weekly Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" .. six of the top 7 seeds were previous winners .. in the semi-finals, three of the finalists, r_monk, sunray, and RickInSF, were previous winners with cassandra having defeated a previous winner, Aldus, in round 3 .. in the finals #7 RickrInSF (1627) defeated #2 r_monk (1795) 6-0

the win entitles RickrInSF to a second entry into the Bloody Mary season championship .. other winners of two or more Bloody Mary weekly tourneys are:

  • don :nr1: :nr1: :nr1:
  • moyang :nr1: :nr1: :nr1:
  • DeaDice :nr1: :nr1:
  • RickrInSF :nr1: :nr1:
  • rif_raf :nr1: :nr1:
  • sixty_something :nr1: :nr1:

thanks to all for playing in the 27th Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" .. all previous Bloody Mary winners will receive invitations to participate in the Bloody Mary "Sunday Special" Season Championship Tournament .. winners of two or more weekly tourneys will receive two invites to the season championship

the Bloody Mary "Sunday Special"  season championship will be a multi-day tournament with 5 point matches and a 7 point final round for the right to advance to the championship .. this will be a standard TourneyBot event broken into two 16 player brackets to accommodate multiple entries .. all matches will be played and scheduled by mutual consent between players .. the final championship round will be a 9 point match between the winners of each bracket to be scheduled for the first Sunday after both brackets are completed

i'd previously announced the championship as double-elimination, but that is being reconsidered due to possible the length of the resulting series .. additionally, the double entry for previous winners would create too much an advantage in a double elimination format

invitations for the championship brackets and final details will be sent after the 32nd "Sunday Special"

In 60's absence I ran the "Sunday, Bloody Sunday (thank god its Easter, I love chocolate)" with OogaBot. The full bracket and results are here in NACCI land

Congratulations to cassandra who beat teyakis in an all hottie final which my Captain resh ("GO team jewfucks") missed.

Helping people is tricky. Give help to anyone and he will remember it only when he is in need again. Since I am not someone who makes history, I help people.

The leftist's feelings of inferiority run so deep that he cannot tolerate any classification of some things as successful or superior and other things as failed or inferior. This also underlies the rejection by many leftists of the concept of mental illness and of the utility of IQ tests.  - T.K

Yum, yum
One of my favorite things

Bloody Mary "Sunday Special"
(3-pt matches/5-pt final)
Every Sunday at FIBS
Registration 10:00am CDT (15:00 UTC)
Play begins at 10:20 am or 15:20 UTC

He's Back!

First, as the founder of this fun and now long running little tourney, many apologies for unexpectedly leaving you all in the lurch. Back in March, a combination of things bumped me offline for about a month, but the phone bill was finally paid and the modem fixed. In the interim, I discovered other obsessions which I plunged into as enthusiastically as I did coming back to backgammon just two years ago - thanks to FIBS. In no time a week turned into a month which quickly turned into a nearly six month sabbatical. I apparently needed it. While I may not be as active in FIBSland as before, it has really been great fun reconnecting with you all in shouts and play at FIBS and now here. I have been warmly welcomed and roundly insulted numerous times. It feels just like coming home!

Second, but no less important, many thanks to the volunteer TD's who have stepped in to keep this tourney "Special" by hosting in my absence - most especially don, manxcat, Spielburg, adrian, PersianLord, and Kari_Grandi. Oh sorry, I failed to mention our favorite multiple personality truckergirl. Wildthing, and Anhinga. You've all hosted one or more tourneys as TD's in the last six months. While any tourney needs a good TD, good players are necessary for a tourney to thrive and grow on its own. There are too many frequent and new players to thank, but, if you're reading this, thanks are most likely due to you, too. Regardless, it appears Bloody Marys, Sundays, and backgammon are a good mix and fun for all. Since this tourney started in September of 2007, we've had nearly sixty tourneys!

Finally, before I left, I received Patti's approval to seek sponsors for some way cool prizes for this championship, like Bloody Mary ingredients and other goodies, but no promises yet as that little project fell deeply between the cracks and is just now being revisited. Suggestions, contributions, or volunteers to help solicit prizes are most welcomed. Like maybe a gift certificate for a favorite bar in New York, London, Paris, or Montgomery, Alabama; or even a gently used t-shirt from the Kerrville Folk Festival or a little plastic Jesus for the dashboard of your car. Be creative and think of or contribute something for winners and our dedicated staff of volunteers who have kept this little tourney alive and kickin'.
