Winners of each group are Will and Jun.
3 of 4 signed people showed up for group A. Since there are enough
empty table left, I called another 3 people, Jack, Jessie, and
Dennis. So 6 people played group A on 2 tables. The first 2 games
were between Kam/Giann and Jessei/Dennis. Giann still had slow warm
up problem, Kam did not have too much trouble to win a 3:0 match.The
game between Jessie and Dennis were furious, Jessie played very
aggressively and the effort payed off, he got the first game. From
the second game, Dennis woke up and fought back. They played a 5 game
match and 10:10 on the 5th game. After saved couple of match point,
Jessie won the 5th game with 16:14. Surpises in group A are that Kam
and Giann beat Jack with 3:1. Nobody is invincible in group A. The
winner is determined by calculating how many games he won.
For group B, Larry played shake handed, this gave Jun a huge
advantage. However, after losing first game, Larry managed to recover
and played better and better, beat all other 3 people. I resigned him
a new rating. Cliff did not play with too much enthusiasm due to his
leg injury. Even so, he gave James enough headache although Jame got
3:2 win. These 2 guys are just too familar with each other. James can
smash on Cliff's long pinp return and Cliff is waiting right there
and smash back.Surpris in group B is Jun beat Vivi. According to
Vivi, she always "beats" Jun when they play at home and I think she
is telling the truth.Let's all pray for Jun tonight.
Next round robbin is scheduled on 03/17/2007. Please send me an mail
to reserve a seat. If there are no enough people, we will find
someone in the club then.
