As the title of the topic is saying, there will be a scopa tournament, which will take place on the 9th, 10th and 11th of may 2017. It will be during three days, in the middle of that week, because the tournament will have four stages: the groups, the quarter-final, the semi-final and the final. The matches of the groups will be played on the first two days and on the third day will be played the matches of the other three stages: the quarter-final, the semi-final and final.
The starting time will be the same for each day, 17:00 (5 p. m. U k time).note:
The scopa escoba variant will be chosen, because the most people wanted this and the 2 points ahead rule will be on.
If there will be a tie, then a tie break match will break it
And the first two very good teams from each group will go to the next stage, the quarter-final.
If one or more players will not turn up on the time, then the match will be awarded automatically to the opponent.
The score limit for each stage is as follow:
13 for the groups, 17 for the quarter-final, 21 for the semi-final and 25 for final.
If the score of the matches will be close, due the rule of two points ahead, then each match will run on untill one of those two players who play them will have the score limit of the next stage.
For example: X vf the match of Y will have the score 12-13, the match will be played untill one of X or Y will have the score 17. Then the match will stop even if their scores will be still close.
In that case if the score will be tie, then who got more cards, diamonds, sevens, or even the seven of diamond, will be considered the winner of that match.
This tournament will be a little bit different, because I can not play early in evening on saturday anymore, therefore I could not run it over the weekend.
So, if your schedule will allow you to participate in this tournament and you wish to do it, then do not hesitate to register here or even to contact me privately.
Hope to have 32 participants in this tournament, if no, I will try to manage it to be an enjoyable event for all of us.
Kind regards, Cristina!
