Rationale for this Project


General Status
  1. The items below relate to mid-2017 and before, when I used to play! They may become more relevant if I return to the game in any capacity.
  2. Statistics: by partner and club-category can be obtained by following these links – for the last quarter and to date.
  3. Recent Results: Follow this link. Further information can be found from my Bridge Page4.
  4. Local Points:
    • 33,768, bagged to date, including 1,175 Blue Points, 98.56 Green Points and 0.22 Gold Points5.
    • That makes me a National Master. My next aim – if I play again – will be to achieve Premier National Master status (40,000 LPs, including 100 GPs) – so just there as far as GPs are concerned6, but still a long way to go for local points.
    • I think I had about 5,000 LPs from my student days, but never registered any, more’s the pity.
  5. EBU Grading:
    • My rating continued to decline in 3Q17, and was down to a mid Q by the time I stopped playing.
    • See Link for full details of the scheme, and the summary7 and previous reports for my detailed meanderings over time.
  6. Summary of Progress to Date: I’ve hived off the history to a separate document8.
  7. Further Details: of time expenditure against task are given below, extracted from the relevant version of my Summary Task List9 (which is regularly updated between Quarterly Status Reports).

Summary of Progress during July - September 2018
  1. I spent 22 hours in 3Q18 on this Project, or related work (61 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2017). That's 56% of the planned effort (94% YTD). Overall, 4% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 3% YTD) - as against 8% planned (3% YTD).
