2013 Asian Nations Cup: Day 1, Session 1

How do you score?

anc-day1-4979You will notice that we display two scores, one for overall chip gain or loss and one for the team points won. The latter is the one which is determining the eventual ranking, but the chip count can come into play as a tie breaker.

For every hand played, a team will have played all 6 positions and will compare their net chip gain or loss as a team against the other teams. The winner of the hand will be awarded 8 points, 2nd place 7 points and so forth. The team with the worst performance in the hand will be awarded 1 point. If two or more teams get the same chip result they will share the points in play, i.e. if three teams share 2nd place they will share 6+5+4 points, giving them each 5 points.

It is For Real Now!

anc-day1-021913As the scores have started to count and the tally has started to run on the monitors displayed throughout the playing area, the participants have started out quite concentrated. The scope of this grand championship is making an impact on most. One exception seems to be at Table 6 where Singapore’s Jacky Wang and India’s Sangeeth Mohan are chatting it up and spreading laughter around the felt. At table 3 Australia’s Queenie Kwan Yee Kim called a river bluff by Japan’s Tsuneaki Takeda and has likely added to a positive score for the Aussies.
