Back to Tournament Results
The 24th annual Toronto-Montreal (Scrabble®) interclub match takes place on January 24th and 25th, 2009 at the Confederation Place Hotel.
We play by regular NSA tournament rules, except that no record is kept of cumulative spread. Games may therefore be ended by resignation, when both players agree that the outcome is certain and the game does not need to be played out. This should be in keeping with the late Mike Wise’s unofficial motto for this event: “Play in a spirit of friendly rivalry.”
Lisa and Bernard draw to see which side goes first in even-numbered rounds, overriding the NSA’s usual protocol.
Ten dollars is collected from each player at the tournament, to cover the cost of the room and the rating fee.
