Müsterschaft (Mü Tournament)
Saturday 24th of January 2009. Beside the local players and some members of the familiar groups from Amberg, Würzburg and Munich, we hoped for another delegation from Essen, but the refrained from joining...
Round 1 saw Thomas, the 2007 winner, Johannes from Erlangen and Alexa from Munich, both tournament newbies climbing the top. Johannes did this in style with a score of 132 points in one hand. A record which stayed top during the tournament, winning him the special price for the highest game.
Intermediate rounds had Thomas dropping down to 4, but to recover in grace and after three preliminary rounds the top 5 players, in order Thomas, Andreas, Gerd, Alexa and Johannes, where seated to the final. While Alexa and Gerd came from the Munich tribe, the other three were local players. In the final Andreas took an early lead, but a loss in second last game slimmed his margin. A huge game in last round swapped back Thomas in rank 1 for becomming champion, followed by Gerd, Andreas, Johannes and Alexa. Congratulations to Thomas.
